Acoustical Physics is an international peer reviewed journal published with the participation of the Russian Academy of Sciences. It covers theoretical and experimental aspects of basic and applied acoustics: classical problems of linear acoustics and wave theory; nonlinear acoustics; physical acoustics; ocean acoustics and hydroacoustics; atmospheric and aeroacoustics; acoustics of structurally inhomogeneous solids; geological acoustics; acoustical ecology, noise and vibration; chamber acoustics, musical acoustics; acoustic signals processing, computer simulations; acoustics of living systems, biomedical acoustics; physical principles of engineering acoustics. The journal publishes critical reviews, original articles, short communications, and letters to the editor. It covers theoretical and experimental aspects of basic and applied acoustics. The journal welcomes manuscripts from all countries in the English or Russian language.

PEER REVIEW

Acoustical Physics is a peer reviewed journal. We use a single blind peer review format. Our team of reviewers includes over 100 experts from Russia, Sweden, USA, UK, Germany. The average period from submission to first decision in 2018 was 30-40 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 60-90 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appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
