PEER REVIEW

Contemporary Problems of Ecology is a peer reviewed journal. We use a single blind peer review format. The average period from submission to first decision is 15 days. The average rejection rate for submitted manuscripts is 72%. The final decision on the acceptance of an article for publication is made by the Editor-in-Chief.

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appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
 

  • Contemporary Problems of Ecology provides an indispensable source of knowledge and guidance to researches in academia and industry. It deserves a place on the library shelves of every academic institute and university with departments of ecology, geography, biology and earth sciences, as well as industrial organizations with environmental protection departments.
