Russian Journal of Developmental Biology  is a journal that publishes reviews and experimental articles dealing with various aspects of developmental biology. It presents fundamental and applied research on development, regeneration, and carcinogenesis at the molecular, cellular, and organismic levels.

PEER REVIEW

Russian Journal of Developmental Biology is a peer reviewed journal. We use a single blind peer review format. The average period from submission to first decision is 25 days. The average rejection rate for submitted manuscripts is 56%. The final decision on the acceptance of an article for publication is made collectively by the Editor-in-Chief, the Deputy Editor-in-Chief and the Coordinating Editor.

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appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
