Combustion, Explosion, and Shock Waves a peer reviewed journal published in collaboration with the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The journal presents top-level studies in the physics and chemistry of combustion and detonation processes, structural and chemical transformation of matter in shock and detonation waves, and related phenomena. Each issue contains valuable information on initiation of detonation in condensed and gaseous phases, environmental consequences of combustion and explosion, engine and power unit combustion, production of new materials by shock and detonation waves, explosion welding, explosive compaction of powders, dynamic responses of materials and constructions, and hypervelocity impact.

PEER REVIEW

Combustion, Explosion, and Shock Waves is a peer reviewed journal. We use a double blind peer review format. Our team of reviewers includes over 300 experts from 10 countries (Russia, Italy, Ukraina, Belarus, Israel, Germany, USA, India, China, France). The average period from submission to first decision in 2018 was 15 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 90 days. The rejection rate for submitted manuscripts in 2018 was 26%. 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appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
