Publications made by the members of the Faculty of Geology of the Moscow State University and their collaborators are published. Publications encompass all branches of geology.
Moscow University Geology Bulletin is a peer reviewed journal. We use a open peer review format. The average period from submission to first decision in 2018 was 60 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 10 days. The rejection rate for submitted manuscripts in 2018 was 15%.

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appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
