Polymer Science, Series C (Selected Topics)  is a journal published in collaboration with the Russian Academy of Sciences. Series C (Selected Topics)  includes experimental and theoretical papers and reviews on the selected actual topics of macromolecular science chosen by the editorial board (1 issue a year). Submission is possible by invitation only. All journal series present original papers and reviews covering all fundamental aspects of macromolecular science. Contributions should be of marked novelty and interest for a broad readership. Articles may be written in English or Russian regardless of country and nationality of authors. All manuscripts are peer reviewed. Online submission via Internet to the Series A, B, and C is available at http://polymsci.ru.

PEER REVIEW

Polymer Science. Series C is a peer reviewed journal. We use a single blind peer review format. Our team of reviewers includes over 200 experts, both internal and external (97%), from 11 countries. The average period from submission to first decision in 2019 was 40 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 29 days. The rejection rate for submitted manuscripts in 2019 was 51%. The final decision on the acceptance of an article for publication is made by the Associate 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appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
