The articles that fit the scope of the scientific problems of the journal «Ukrainian sense / Український смисл» are accepted. The manuscript that does not meet the requirements of the journal can be rejected at once by the Executive Editor.
The Editorial Board adheres to the global standards of transparency of peer reviewing, so it practices double-blind review of manuscripts: an author and a reviewer are not aware of the identities of each other. Their personal information is preliminarily removed from the texts of articles and file properties.
Articles are sent for reviewing to two independent experts. A reviewer studies the abstract of an article and either agrees or refuses to review the material obtained. In case of refusal, the Editorial Board invites another reviewer.
A reviewer evaluates the scientific level of the article, filling in the «Review form», where he/ she makes critical comments. The expert can additionally upload the files with the corrected manuscript or materials that can be used during further work at the article.
After filling in the «Review form», reviewers choose one of the proposed recommendations:
Upon completion of the peer review process, all the relevant information is sent to the author. The author makes changes to the manuscript and uploads its new version. If the manuscript is not returned within two months or the author does not notify the Editorial Board about the reasons for the delay, it is removed from the waiting list.
Reviewers reconsider the improved paper and make recommendations on the possibility of its publishing.
