The editorial board of the Scientific Pedagogical Journal "Рroblems of Engineering and Professional Education" accepts articles corresponding to the subject matter of the journal and organizes a peer review process. The Editorial Board offers a wide range of specialists as reviewers and ensures that the reviewers and the author do not have a conflict of interest. For a more objective assessment, the reviewers receive an article without the author's surname: an anonymous independent review (two-sided "blind") is accepted in the editorial office. The reviewer evaluates the scientific level of the material. The comments do not concern the personal qualities of the authors: unethical and offensive comments are not allowed.

For reviewers:

  • -Each manuscript submitted for review is considered a confidential document. The reviewer cannot use in his publications any materials contained in the submitted manuscript. The reviewer may send material to third parties only with the permission of the editor-in-chief;
  • -According to the publication’s peer-reviewing policy, the journal uses the procedure of one-way “blind” peer-review, when the authors' data is known to the reviewer. In this connection, the object of the review should be the results of the studies obtained, and not the author / group of authors. The expert opinion should not depend on gender, nationality, religion and other personal qualities of the author / group of authors;
  • -The reviewer needs to submit an objective assessment of the work to the editorial office, if necessary, propose options for improving the submitted material;

The reviewer must refuse to review the material, notifying the editors if he is not a specialist on the topic of the material.
