Manuscript requirements

Articles submitted to the editorial board pass the procedures of: initial screening, checking with the help of a plagiarism detecting system (Anti-Plagiarism), reviewing, and approval for publication by the editorial board. The editorial board accepts for consideration materials (manuscripts) in Russian, complying with the editorial policy of the journal, having contents suitable for one of its sections, previously not published and not accepted for consideration by other journals' editorial boards, meeting requirements stated in "Ethics of scientific publications in The Bulletin of the Institute of Economics of the Russian Academy of Sciences" and formatted in accordance with the rules established by the editorial board.

If in the course of initial screening the non-compliance of the subject, content or format of an article with the editorial requirements is revealed, its author/authors is/are informed that it is rejected without being reviewed any further. As a rule, this information is emailed to the author(s) not later than 10 days after the article was received by the editorial board. The reviewing procedure is carried out in accordance with "Regulations on reviewing materials received by the editorial board of The Bulletin of the Institute of Economics of the Russian Academy of Sciences".

The editorial board makes a decision about accepting an article for publication, sending it for revision or rejecting it based on the results of the review and discussion of the article. Articles received by the editorial board after revision are re-reviewed and discussed by the editorial board. Prior to publication, articles are subject to scientific and literary editing. Editorial revisions are agreed upon with the authors. In case an article is accepted for publication, a publication agreement is sent to the author(s) for approval and signature.

Publishing date is decided on by editors in the process of discussing the content of upcoming issues and is approved by the editor-in-chief.

Articles are published free of charge. The journal does not charge authors any fee for preparing their manuscripts for publication. It does not return submitted articles and other materials to authors.

Authors of articles are responsible for their content and for the fact of their publication. The editorial board does not always share authors' opinions and is not liable for any inaccuracy of the published data. The editorial board disclaims responsibility for any damage that the publication of articles may cause to authors and/or third parties and organizations.
