Protection of Metals and Physical Chemistry of Surfaces is an international peer reviewed journal that publishes articles covering all aspects of the physical chemistry of materials and interfaces in various environments. The journal covers all related problems of modern physical chemistry and materials science, including: physicochemical processes at interfaces; adsorption phenomena; complexing from molecular and supramolecular structures at the interfaces to new substances, materials and coatings; nanoscale and nanostructured materials and coatings, composed and dispersed materials; physicochemical problems of corrosion, degradation and protection; investigation methods for surface and interface systems, processes, structures, materials and coatings. No principe restrictions exist related systems, types of processes, methods of control and study. The journal welcomes conceptual, theoretical, experimental, methodological, instrumental, environmental, and all other possible studies.

PEER REVIEW

Protection of Metals and Physical Chemistry of Surfaces is a peer reviewed journal. We use a single blind blind peer review format. Our team of reviewers includes over 50 experts. The average period from submission to first decision in 2018 was 30 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 30 days. The rejection rate for submitted manuscripts in 2018 was 40%. 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appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
