Kinematics and Physics of Celestial Bodies is concerned with the physical, integral properties of celestial bodies, kinematic astronomy and its base, astrometry. The journal publishes original and review papers on such topics as: Positional and theoretical astronomy; Earth's rotation and geodynamics; Dynamics and physics of bodies of the Solar System; Solar physics; Physics of stars and the interstellar medium; Structure and dynamics of the Galaxy; Extragalactic astronomy; Atmospheric optics and astronomical climate; Instruments and devices; Databases and more.

The journal places an emphasis on structure and dynamics of the Galaxy, as well as on extragalactic astronomy. This journal is as much devoted to astronomical data, methods, and theoretical foundations for their collection, as it is to constructing dynamic and physical models for their interpretation.

The journal is published under the auspices of the Division of Physics and Astronomy of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.

PEER REVIEW

Kinematics and Physics of Celestial Bodies is a peer reviewed journal. We use a single blind peer review format. Our team of reviewers includes both internal and external (50%), from 5 countries (Ukraine, Russian Federation, USA, Slovak Republic, France). The average period from submission to first decision in 2017 was 30 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 60 days. The final decision on the acceptance of an article for publication is made by the Editorial Board.

Any invited reviewer who feels unqualified or unable to review the manuscript due to the conflict of interests should promptly notify the editors and decline the invitation. Reviewers should formulate their statements clearly in a sound and reasoned way so that authors can use reviewer’s arguments to improve the manuscript. Personal criticism of the authors must be avoided. Reviewers should indicate in a review (i) any relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors, (ii) anything that has been reported in previous publications and not given appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
