Biochemistry (Moscow) is a peer reviewed journal. We use a single blind peer review format. Our team of reviewers includes over 100 experts from many countries (Russia, Germany, USA, Finland, Sweden, Spain, and etc.). The average period from submission to first decision in 2018 was 14-21 days. The rejection rate for submitted manuscripts in 2018 was 71%. All referees’ reports are sent to the Handling Editor responsible to the specific section of the journal topics. The decision is made by the Handling Editor and the Coordinate Editor on the basis of reviewers’ comments.
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appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
