Instruments and Experimental Techniques is an international peer reviewed journal that publishes reviews describing advanced methods for physical measurements and techniques and original articles that present techniques for physical measurements, principles of operation, design, methods of application, and analysis of the operation of physical instruments used in all fields of experimental physics and when conducting measurements using physical methods and instruments in astronomy, natural sciences, chemistry, biology, medicine, and ecology.

PEER REVIEW

Instruments and Experimental Techniques is a peer reviewed journal. We use a single blind peer review format. Our team of reviewers includes over 90 experts. The average period from submission to first decision in 2018 was 14 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 90 days. The rejection rate for submitted manuscripts in 2018 was 50%. The final decision on the acceptance of an article for publication is made by the Editor-in-Chief.

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appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
