Doklady Earth Sciences is a journal consisting of English translations of articles published in Russian on geology, mineralogy, petrology, oceanology, geography, soil science, paleontology, geochemistry, and geophysics in the corresponding sections of Doklady Akademii Nauk. The journal's goal is to publish the most significant new research in Earth science carried out in Russia today or in collaboration with Russian authors. The journal accepts only articles in the Russian language that are submitted or recommended by acting Russian or foreign members of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The journal does not accept direct submissions in English.

PEER REVIEW

Doklady Earth Sciences is a peer reviewed journal. We use open/single blind/double blind peer review formats. Our team of reviewers includes over 160 experts. The average period from submission to first decision in 2018 was 3 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 30 days. The rejection rate for submitted manuscripts in 2018 was 5%. 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appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
