Russian Journal of Pacific Geology publishes the results of research on the Earth crust and mantle composition and provides articles on the geological structure and patterns of distribution of mineral deposits in the Pacific Ocean, marginal seas and continental margins. It discusses the topics of stratigraphy, sedimentology, magmatic activity, and seismicity. The journal deals with the problems of lithosphere plates tectonics, and offers the results of neotectonic, geomorphological, geodesic, environmental and mining studies in the Pacific region. The journal accepts theoretical, methodical and philosophical articles covering general issues of geology, geophysics, geochemistry, geoecology and mining. The journal also publishes critical notes and comments, and reviews.
Russian Journal of Pacific Geology is a peer reviewed journal. We use a double blind peer review format. Our team of reviewers includes over 100 experts. The average period from submission to first decision in 2018 was 2-6 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 90 days. The rejection rate for submitted manuscripts in 2018 was 10%. 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appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
