Recommendations to Author and Editor

 

Manuscript Content and Structure

 

All articles submitted for publication in the journal are uploaded to the site (see Article Submission). All titles of uploaded files should be in Latin without any special symbols, with one point separating the file name and extension, for example, fig01.tif, f01.gif, paper.doc, tab12.doc, table01.txt etc.

At preparing the article for loading and receiving the electronic version of the manuscript you should have:

  • title of the article,
  • text of the article and other components, which may be represented as separate files (tables, drawings, electronic applications),
  • authors list, arranged in the order defined by the authors,
  • addresses of authors (organization, city, province/state, country),
  • name and actual e-mail of the corresponding author,
  • keywords that reflect the subject and content of the article from the GCMD KeywordsAGU Index Terms and according to the author's choice.

We recommend also to include graphical abstract and/or video abstracts (2-3 min) if applicable.

The text should be structured and include:

  • abstract (200-250 words),
  • introduction,
  • basic text,
  • conclusion,
  • references.

 

The basic part can be structured if necessary up to three levels of depth with or without numbering - \section{<section_title>}, \subsection{}, \subsubsection{}.

Text of acknowledgment for the help in preparing the article (intellectual, technical and financial) must be in the form of a separate fragment and placed at the end of the article before the list of references, or a first appendix (if available).

The article may be submitted with appendices, including a description of the electronic components that are placed after acknowledgement before the reference list.

 

Article Language

Russian Journal of Earth Sciences publishes articles in English and in Russian.

For historical reasons (the Journal was created in collaboration with the American Geophysical Union) we recommend to use standard U.S. English, as well as the AGU Grammar and Style Guide. For the authors' convenience a copy of this document can also be downloaded from RJES website.

 

!

Russian-speaking authors may submit original manuscripts in Russian. These articles will be reviewed by the Editorial Board in the general order provided a guarantee of the author or his organization to prepare qualified translation into English if the article is accepted for publication in the journal.

 

Manuscript Format

The article may be submitted::

  • as ASCII file, at that all of the structural components and paragraphs must be separated by empty lines,
  • in MS Word format not lower than 97 version,
  • in LaTeX format, at that only style files should be used, recommended by the Editorial Board (available on request by email, rjes@gcras.ru).

 

Along with the listed files, it is recommended to additionally submit the version of the article with all the inserted components (annotations, figures, tables, references, etc.) in MS Word or PDF formats. There are no special requirements for the composition of this version, it is important that it is easily readable. This will reduce the time to prepare a review for the article.

Highly specialized jargon, terms and mathematical symbols without explanation, acronyms without decrypting in the text, as well as any other elements that impede understanding of the article's content should never be used.

 

References

According to the accepted style of the Journal in-text reference links should not be given in numbers. In-text reference links should follow the format: [Ivanov, 2016] for one author, [Ivanov and Petrov, 2015] for two authors, [Ivanov et al., 2015] for three or more authors. The list of references should not be numberred. It should be arranged in alphabetical order by the first authors' surnames and years of publication of referred sources. It is recommended to put more than one in-text reference links inside square brackets pair separating them with semicolon, e.g. [Ivanov, 2016; Ivanov and Petrov, 2015].

 

Format of the list of referenced literature

If the original version of the article is not in the LaTeX format with a recommended style file (elxpaper.sty, elxshort.sty version 1.5 or 2.0), the list of referenced literature is reformatted to the form compatible with Crossref recommendations. This is a necessary condition for the participation of the publisher (GC RAS) in the Crossref "Forward Linking" project, which provides timely information on the citation of the relevant article. References may include articles in scientific journals with an assigned DOI identifier and without it, books and articles in books (collections), abstracts of reports at conferences and scientific and technical reports, as well as registered databases and data sets. The types of publications listed have different sets of required parameters and are described in sufficient detail in Table 3 of the guide (DOI: 10.2205/2015BS016).

The inclusion of publications that are not directly related to the content of the article, and excessive self-citation should be avoided in the list of referenced literature. Included in the list of works are automatically excluded if the text does not contain correct references to them.

Floating Article Components

The floating article components (floats), i.e. pictures, tables, animations, videos etc. should be submitted as separate files. The names of the same type, for example, figures (tables) must have the same structure and differ only in number, and the number must match the sequence of appearance of references to the corresponding figure (table) in the text, for example: f01.gif, f02.gif, ....f12.tif, or fig01.tif, fig02.eps,...fig12.tif. Appearance of the original references to floats in a random order is unacceptable, i.e., the first link in the article to Figure 2 must be preceded by a reference to Figure 1 etc.

Screen text should be kept to a minimum in figures (in the field of the image). All necessary explanations should be given in the figure caption. No characters, symbols etc. should be in the figures, which are not explained in the captions or in the text of the article, except geographical names or well-known and well-established terms, which do not require explanation.

For preparing graphics an author should be guided by the version of the article in a journal format, i.e. the recommended resolution is 300 dpi. For linear graphics (black & white) PCX, MSPn, and BMP formats may be used. Though necessary scaling can be easily produced at a final stage, we recommend to prepare graphics files in 1:1 scale, to avoid reducing the graphics quality. The final size of graphics should be not less than 8.5 / 23 cm, including a figure caption for placing in one column, 17 / 23 cm for placing in two columns, i.e. 1000 x 2700 px and 2050 x 2700 px respectively at resolution 300 dpi. Fonts used for captions inside images (after scaling of initial images) should be close (+/-30%} to the font size used for basic text.

In the case of submitting maps with many details a substantial increase in the physical size of the image is permitted. This allows to effectively use the scaling tools when viewing, for example, in Adobe Acrobat, or including such maps in Flash format. Editorial and technical team in such cases provides all the necessary assistance in preparing graphics material.

Other components (animation, video, audio, interfaces to other databases etc.) must also be downloaded as a separate file. As a rule, these components are not edited, but in some cases, especially if the downloadable components have active elements (SSI, ActiveX, Java-based components etc.), you may need an agreement with the system administrator of electronic publishing server.

Tables and data

If the amount of data included in the article does not exceed 2 Kb, they can be included as a structural element in the text of the article or placed in a separate file (or several files by the number of tables) in the formats recommended for the text of the article as an floating object, and both portrait and landscape orientation of the tables are allowed. Sometimes an article is based on data that is much larger than the recommended size of the article, which prevents the inclusion of this data directly into the article. In this case, the editors recommend publishing these data as a specialized database or datasets in the Earth Science DataBase. This is considered as data publication with the corresponding assignment of this publication to a unique DOI (Digital Object Identifier).

Publishing Ethics

This text is based on the Elsevier Publishers materials in accordance with the Committee on Publication Ethics Code of Conduct guidelines (COPE).

1. Introduction

1.1. The publication in the Russian Journal of Earth Sciences serves many purposes outside of simple communication. It is a building block in the development of a coherent and respected network of knowledge and a significant contribution to the development of Earth Sciences. For all these reasons and more it is important to lay down standards of expected ethical behaviour by all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer, the publisher (GC RAS) and the National Geophysical Committee of Russian federation (NGC RF) for the Russian Journal of Earth Sciences.

1.2. Publisher has a supporting, investing and nurturing role in the scholarly communication process but is also ultimately responsible for ensuring that best practice is followed in its publications.

1.3. Publisher takes its duties of guardianship over the scholarly record extremely seriously. Our journal programmes record "the minutes of geoscience" and we recognize our responsibilities as the keeper of those "minutes" in all our policies not least the ethical guidelines that we have here adopted.

 

2. Duties of Editors

 

2.1. Publication decision. The Editor-in-Chief of the Russian Journal of Earth Sciences is solely and independently responsible for deciding which of the articles submitted to the journal should be published, often working on conjunction with the relevant society (NGC RF). The validation of the work in question and its importance to researchers and readers must always underwrite such decisions. The Editor-in-Chief (or his co-editor - further Editor) may be guided by the policies of the Russian Journal of Earth Sciences' editorial board and constrained by such legal requirements as shall then be in force regarding libel, copyright infringement and plagiarism. The editor may confer with other editors or reviewers in making this decision.

2.2. Fair play. An editor should evaluate manuscripts for their intellectual content without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the authors.

2.3. Confidentiality. The editor and any editorial staff of the Russian Journal of Earth Sciences must not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisers, and the publisher, as appropriate.

2.4. Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest.

2.4.1. Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in an editor's own research without the express written consent of the author. Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage.

2.4.2. Editors should recuse themselves (i.e. should ask a co-editor, associate editor or other member of the editorial board instead to review and consider) from considering manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or (possibly) institutions connected to the papers.

2.5. Vigilance over published record. An editor presented with convincing evidence that the substance or conclusions of a published paper are erroneous should coordinate with the publisher (and/or relevant society) to promote the prompt publication of a correction, retraction, expression of concern, or other note, as may be relevant.

2.6. Involvement and cooperation in investigations. An editor should take reasonably responsive measures when ethical complaints have been presented concerning a submitted manuscript or published paper, in conjunction with the publisher (or relevant society). Such measures will generally include contacting the author of the manuscript or paper and giving due consideration of the respective complaint or claims made, but may also include further communications to the relevant institutions and research bodies.

 

3. Duties of Reviewers

 

3.1. Contribution to Editorial Decisions. Peer review assists the editor in making editorial decisions and through the editorial communications with the author may also assist the author in improving the paper. Peer review is an essential component of formal scholarly communication, and lies at the heart of the scientific method.

3.2. Promptness. Any selected referee who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that its prompt review will be impossible should notify the editor of the Russian Journal of Earth Sciences and excuse himself from the review process.

3.3. Confidentiality. Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. They must not be shown to or discussed with others except as authorized by the editor.

3.4. Standard and Objectivity. Reviews should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. Referees should express their views clearly with supporting arguments.

3.5. Acknowledgement of Sources. Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors. Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument had been previously reported should be accompanied by the relevant citation. A reviewer should also call to the editor's attention any substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and any other published paper of which they have personal knowledge.

3.6. Disclosure and Conflict of Interest.

3.6.1. Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in a reviewer's own research without the express written consent of the author. Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage.

3.6.2. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.

 

4. Duties of Authors

 

4.1. Reporting Standards.

4.1.1. Authors of reports of original research should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance. Underlying data should be represented accurately in the paper. A paper should contain sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behaviour and are unacceptable.

4.1.2. Review and professional publication articles should also be accurate and objective, and editorial 'opinion' works should be clearly identified as such.

4.2. Data Access and Retention.

Authors may be asked to provide the raw data in connection with a paper for editorial review, and should be prepared to provide public access to such data (consistent with the ALPSP-STM Statement on Data and Databases), if practicable, and should in any event be prepared to retain such data for a reasonable time after publication. Initial data on the basis of which the manuscript was prepared may be accepted for inclusion in the Earth Science DataBase (ESDB) and simultaneously published with the assignment of DOI index.

4.3. Originality and Plagiarism.

4.3.1. The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others, this has been appropriately cited or quoted.

4.3.2. Plagiarism takes many forms, from 'passing off' another's paper as the author's own paper, to copying or paraphrasing substantial parts of another's paper (without attribution), to claiming results from research conducted by others. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behaviour and is unacceptable.

4.4. Multiple, Redundant or Concurrent Publication.

4.4.1. An author should not in general publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal of primary publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behaviour and is unacceptable.

4.4.2. In general, an author should not submit for consideration in another journal a previously published paper.

4.4.3. Publication of some kinds of articles (e.g. translations) in more than one journal is sometimes justifiable, provided certain conditions are met. The authors and editors of the journals concerned must agree to the secondary publication, which must reflect the same data and interpretation of the primary document. The primary reference must be cited in the secondary publication.

4.5. Acknowledgement of Sources. Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work. Information obtained privately, as in conversation, correspondence, or discussion with third parties, must not be used or reported without explicit, written permission from the source. Information obtained in the course of confidential services, such as refereeing manuscripts or grant applications, must not be used without the explicit written permission of the author of the work involved in these services.

4.6. Authorship of the Paper.

4.6.1. Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. All those who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors. Where there are others who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they should be acknowledged or listed as contributors.

4.6.2. The corresponding author should ensure that all appropriate co-authors and no inappropriate co-authors are included on the paper, and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the paper and have agreed to its submission for publication.

4.7. Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest.

4.7.1. All authors should disclose in their manuscript any financial or other substantive conflict of interest that might be construed to influence the results or interpretation of their manuscript. All sources of financial support for the project should be disclosed.

4.7.2. Examples of potential conflicts of interest which should be disclosed include employment, consultancies, stock ownership, honoraria, paid expert testimony, patent applications/registrations, and grants or other funding. Potential conflicts of interest should be disclosed at the earliest possible stage.

4.8. Fundamental errors in published works. When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in a published work, it is the author's obligation to promptly notify the editor of the Russian Journal of Earth Sciences and cooperate with Publisher to retract or correct the paper. If the editor or the publisher learn from a third party that a published work contains a significant error, it is the obligation of the author to promptly retract or correct the paper.

 

5. Duties of the Publisher

 

5.1. Publisher should adopt policies and procedures that support editors, reviewers and authors of the Russian Journal of Earth Sciences in performing their ethical duties under these ethics guidelines. The publisher should ensure that the potential for advertising or reprint revenue has no impact or influence on editorial decisions.

5.2. The publisher should support the Russian Journal of Earth Sciences editors in the review of complaints raised concerning ethical issues and help communications with other journals and/or publishers where this is useful to editors.

5.3. Publisher should develop codes of practice and inculcate industry standards for best practice on ethical matters, errors and retractions.

5.4. Publisher should provide specialized legal review and counsel if necessary.

 

Founder

 

The founder of the journal is the Geophysical Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences

Author Fees

Publication in the Russian Journal of Earth Sciences is free of charge for all the authors. The journal doesn't have any Article processing charges.

 

Disclosure and Conflict of Interest

 

Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in a reviewer's own research without the express written consent of the author. Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.

 

Plagiarism Detection

 

The Russian Journal of Earth Sciences editorial board uses native Russian-language plagiarism detection software Antiplagiat to screen the submissions. If plagiarism is identified, the COPE guidelines on plagiarism will be followed.

 

Preprint and Postprint Policy

 

Prior to acceptance and publication in the Russian Journal of Earth Sciences, authors are required to confirm that the submission has not been previously published, nor has been submitted. When referring to an article published in the Russian Journal of Earth Sciences the publishers suggest that the article (including DOI index) is linked to the journal's website (http://rjes.wdcb.ru). With the consent of the authors the articles accepted for publication in the Russian Journal of Earth Sciences may be pre-registered in Crossref assigning DOI index and the publication of abstracts. As part of submission process, authors are required to submit the articles, previously shared on personal or public websites, not related to other publishers.

Article Submission and Publishing Process

1. After downloading the articles the program monitors a number of formal characteristics of the loaded material and generates a prior notification to the author, sent by e-mail system. The system also generates a unique paper identifier used later as a DOI suffix (DOI – Digital Object Identifier).

2. Technical editor checks the availability and consistency of all materials submitted by the author in accordance with the above requirements. In the absence of comments the article goes to further processing (see paragraph 3 below), otherwise the author is requested to download the missing or requiring replacement components.

3. Editor-in-Chief or an authorized member of the Editorial Board examines the article and makes one of the decisions:

  • accepts the article for publication, possible minor editorial clarifications carried out by the Editorial Board (paragraph 5 below);
  • forwards the article to the unilateral "blind" review to one or more reviewers;
  • forwards the article to the author for processing according to the results of his own review, or on the basis of peer reviews;
  • declines the article if it does not match Journal's profile or based on false data and/or arguments.

 

4. The Editorial Board informs the author about all stages of processing, re-examines the revised article and, if necessary, sends it to a re-review.

5. Article, accepted for publication, is transferred to the editorial and technical staff, electronic components (animation, video, scripts) are forwarded to the technical staff of the Editorial Board.

6. The first and the most sensitive stage of technical processing is a translation of the text in LaTeX format, preparation of graphics files and descriptions of electronic applications to prepare an integrated LaTeX file as galleys of the article. Proofreading of galleys is done by a technical editor to check the compliance with the text, the use of standardized (recommended) units (SI units) and other technical requirements. Proofs are processed by a special program that provides automatic numbering of paragraphs, verification of compliance with references in the text with a list of references, generates unique identifiers of links, which are then used to generate XML files for Crossref, and also checks the text for the absence of non-Latin characters. The proofs of the article are not subject to any further editorial processing, all the issues related to the quality of articles and translation must be resolved before this stage.

7. The following stages of technical processing are carried out mainly with the use of software developed by technical experts of GC RAS (see paragraph EP Tools Used), and include:

  • pages composition in accordance with the journal standard and generating a printed version of the article in PDF format;
  • generating a set of HTML5 files in accordance with the structure adopted for the online version;
  • generating article metadata in XML formats to download them to Crossref and eLibrary;
  • conversion HTML5 files to XHTML format and generating EPUB3 structure;
  • generating a portable version in PDF format for smartphones.

 

8. Downloading the generated sets of files to the GC RAS server (http://elpub.wdcb.ru/journals/rjes/) and medtadata files to Crossref and eLibrary servers, then the author is notified of the publication of the article, and receives the output data.

For historical reasons (the Journal was created in collaboration with the American Geophysical Union) we recommend to use standard U.S. English, as well as the AGU Grammar and Style Guide. For the authors' convenience a copy of this document can also be downloaded from RJES website.

 

!

Russian-speaking authors may submit original manuscripts in Russian. These articles will be reviewed by the Editorial Board in the general order provided a guarantee of the author or his organization to prepare qualified translation into English if the article is accepted for publication in the journal.

 

Manuscript Format

The article may be submitted::

  • as ASCII file, at that all of the structural components and paragraphs must be separated by empty lines,
  • in MS Word format not lower than 97 version,
  • in LaTeX format, at that only style files should be used, recommended by the Editorial Board (available on request by email, rjes@gcras.ru).

 

Along with the listed files, it is recommended to additionally submit the version of the article with all the inserted components (annotations, figures, tables, references, etc.) in MS Word or PDF formats. There are no special requirements for the composition of this version, it is important that it is easily readable. This will reduce the time to prepare a review for the article.

Highly specialized jargon, terms and mathematical symbols without explanation, acronyms without decrypting in the text, as well as any other elements that impede understanding of the article's content should never be used.

 

References

According to the accepted style of the Journal in-text reference links should not be given in numbers. In-text reference links should follow the format: [Ivanov, 2016] for one author, [Ivanov and Petrov, 2015] for two authors, [Ivanov et al., 2015] for three or more authors. The list of references should not be numberred. It should be arranged in alphabetical order by the first authors' surnames and years of publication of referred sources. It is recommended to put more than one in-text reference links inside square brackets pair separating them with semicolon, e.g. [Ivanov, 2016; Ivanov and Petrov, 2015].

 

Format of the list of referenced literature

If the original version of the article is not in the LaTeX format with a recommended style file (elxpaper.sty, elxshort.sty version 1.5 or 2.0), the list of referenced literature is reformatted to the form compatible with Crossref recommendations. This is a necessary condition for the participation of the publisher (GC RAS) in the Crossref "Forward Linking" project, which provides timely information on the citation of the relevant article. References may include articles in scientific journals with an assigned DOI identifier and without it, books and articles in books (collections), abstracts of reports at conferences and scientific and technical reports, as well as registered databases and data sets. The types of publications listed have different sets of required parameters and are described in sufficient detail in Table 3 of the guide (DOI: 10.2205/2015BS016).

The inclusion of publications that are not directly related to the content of the article, and excessive self-citation should be avoided in the list of referenced literature. Included in the list of works are automatically excluded if the text does not contain correct references to them.

Floating Article Components

The floating article components (floats), i.e. pictures, tables, animations, videos etc. should be submitted as separate files. The names of the same type, for example, figures (tables) must have the same structure and differ only in number, and the number must match the sequence of appearance of references to the corresponding figure (table) in the text, for example: f01.gif, f02.gif, ....f12.tif, or fig01.tif, fig02.eps,...fig12.tif. Appearance of the original references to floats in a random order is unacceptable, i.e., the first link in the article to Figure 2 must be preceded by a reference to Figure 1 etc.

Screen text should be kept to a minimum in figures (in the field of the image). All necessary explanations should be given in the figure caption. No characters, symbols etc. should be in the figures, which are not explained in the captions or in the text of the article, except geographical names or well-known and well-established terms, which do not require explanation.

For preparing graphics an author should be guided by the version of the article in a journal format, i.e. the recommended resolution is 300 dpi. For linear graphics (black & white) PCX, MSPn, and BMP formats may be used. Though necessary scaling can be easily produced at a final stage, we recommend to prepare graphics files in 1:1 scale, to avoid reducing the graphics quality. The final size of graphics should be not less than 8.5 / 23 cm, including a figure caption for placing in one column, 17 / 23 cm for placing in two columns, i.e. 1000 x 2700 px and 2050 x 2700 px respectively at resolution 300 dpi. Fonts used for captions inside images (after scaling of initial images) should be close (+/-30%} to the font size used for basic text.

In the case of submitting maps with many details a substantial increase in the physical size of the image is permitted. This allows to effectively use the scaling tools when viewing, for example, in Adobe Acrobat, or including such maps in Flash format. Editorial and technical team in such cases provides all the necessary assistance in preparing graphics material.

Other components (animation, video, audio, interfaces to other databases etc.) must also be downloaded as a separate file. As a rule, these components are not edited, but in some cases, especially if the downloadable components have active elements (SSI, ActiveX, Java-based components etc.), you may need an agreement with the system administrator of electronic publishing server.

Tables and data

If the amount of data included in the article does not exceed 2 Kb, they can be included as a structural element in the text of the article or placed in a separate file (or several files by the number of tables) in the formats recommended for the text of the article as an floating object, and both portrait and landscape orientation of the tables are allowed. Sometimes an article is based on data that is much larger than the recommended size of the article, which prevents the inclusion of this data directly into the article. In this case, the editors recommend publishing these data as a specialized database or datasets in the Earth Science DataBase. This is considered as data publication with the corresponding assignment of this publication to a unique DOI (Digital Object Identifier).

Publishing Ethics

This text is based on the Elsevier Publishers materials in accordance with the Committee on Publication Ethics Code of Conduct guidelines (COPE).

1. Introduction

1.1. The publication in the Russian Journal of Earth Sciences serves many purposes outside of simple communication. It is a building block in the development of a coherent and respected network of knowledge and a significant contribution to the development of Earth Sciences. For all these reasons and more it is important to lay down standards of expected ethical behaviour by all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer, the publisher (GC RAS) and the National Geophysical Committee of Russian federation (NGC RF) for the Russian Journal of Earth Sciences.

1.2. Publisher has a supporting, investing and nurturing role in the scholarly communication process but is also ultimately responsible for ensuring that best practice is followed in its publications.

1.3. Publisher takes its duties of guardianship over the scholarly record extremely seriously. Our journal programmes record "the minutes of geoscience" and we recognize our responsibilities as the keeper of those "minutes" in all our policies not least the ethical guidelines that we have here adopted.

 

2. Duties of Editors

 

2.1. Publication decision. The Editor-in-Chief of the Russian Journal of Earth Sciences is solely and independently responsible for deciding which of the articles submitted to the journal should be published, often working on conjunction with the relevant society (NGC RF). The validation of the work in question and its importance to researchers and readers must always underwrite such decisions. The Editor-in-Chief (or his co-editor - further Editor) may be guided by the policies of the Russian Journal of Earth Sciences' editorial board and constrained by such legal requirements as shall then be in force regarding libel, copyright infringement and plagiarism. The editor may confer with other editors or reviewers in making this decision.

2.2. Fair play. An editor should evaluate manuscripts for their intellectual content without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the authors.

2.3. Confidentiality. The editor and any editorial staff of the Russian Journal of Earth Sciences must not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisers, and the publisher, as appropriate.

2.4. Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest.

2.4.1. Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in an editor's own research without the express written consent of the author. Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage.

2.4.2. Editors should recuse themselves (i.e. should ask a co-editor, associate editor or other member of the editorial board instead to review and consider) from considering manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or (possibly) institutions connected to the papers.

2.5. Vigilance over published record. An editor presented with convincing evidence that the substance or conclusions of a published paper are erroneous should coordinate with the publisher (and/or relevant society) to promote the prompt publication of a correction, retraction, expression of concern, or other note, as may be relevant.

2.6. Involvement and cooperation in investigations. An editor should take reasonably responsive measures when ethical complaints have been presented concerning a submitted manuscript or published paper, in conjunction with the publisher (or relevant society). Such measures will generally include contacting the author of the manuscript or paper and giving due consideration of the respective complaint or claims made, but may also include further communications to the relevant institutions and research bodies.

 

3. Duties of Reviewers

 

3.1. Contribution to Editorial Decisions. Peer review assists the editor in making editorial decisions and through the editorial communications with the author may also assist the author in improving the paper. Peer review is an essential component of formal scholarly communication, and lies at the heart of the scientific method.

3.2. Promptness. Any selected referee who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that its prompt review will be impossible should notify the editor of the Russian Journal of Earth Sciences and excuse himself from the review process.

3.3. Confidentiality. Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. They must not be shown to or discussed with others except as authorized by the editor.

3.4. Standard and Objectivity. Reviews should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. Referees should express their views clearly with supporting arguments.

3.5. Acknowledgement of Sources. Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors. Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument had been previously reported should be accompanied by the relevant citation. A reviewer should also call to the editor's attention any substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and any other published paper of which they have personal knowledge.

3.6. Disclosure and Conflict of Interest.

3.6.1. Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in a reviewer's own research without the express written consent of the author. Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage.

3.6.2. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.

 

4. Duties of Authors

 

4.1. Reporting Standards.

4.1.1. Authors of reports of original research should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance. Underlying data should be represented accurately in the paper. A paper should contain sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behaviour and are unacceptable.

4.1.2. Review and professional publication articles should also be accurate and objective, and editorial 'opinion' works should be clearly identified as such.

4.2. Data Access and Retention.

Authors may be asked to provide the raw data in connection with a paper for editorial review, and should be prepared to provide public access to such data (consistent with the ALPSP-STM Statement on Data and Databases), if practicable, and should in any event be prepared to retain such data for a reasonable time after publication. Initial data on the basis of which the manuscript was prepared may be accepted for inclusion in the Earth Science DataBase (ESDB) and simultaneously published with the assignment of DOI index.

4.3. Originality and Plagiarism.

4.3.1. The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others, this has been appropriately cited or quoted.

4.3.2. Plagiarism takes many forms, from 'passing off' another's paper as the author's own paper, to copying or paraphrasing substantial parts of another's paper (without attribution), to claiming results from research conducted by others. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behaviour and is unacceptable.

4.4. Multiple, Redundant or Concurrent Publication.

4.4.1. An author should not in general publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal of primary publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behaviour and is unacceptable.

4.4.2. In general, an author should not submit for consideration in another journal a previously published paper.

4.4.3. Publication of some kinds of articles (e.g. translations) in more than one journal is sometimes justifiable, provided certain conditions are met. The authors and editors of the journals concerned must agree to the secondary publication, which must reflect the same data and interpretation of the primary document. The primary reference must be cited in the secondary publication.

4.5. Acknowledgement of Sources. Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work. Information obtained privately, as in conversation, correspondence, or discussion with third parties, must not be used or reported without explicit, written permission from the source. Information obtained in the course of confidential services, such as refereeing manuscripts or grant applications, must not be used without the explicit written permission of the author of the work involved in these services.

4.6. Authorship of the Paper.

4.6.1. Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. All those who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors. Where there are others who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they should be acknowledged or listed as contributors.

4.6.2. The corresponding author should ensure that all appropriate co-authors and no inappropriate co-authors are included on the paper, and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the paper and have agreed to its submission for publication.

4.7. Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest.

4.7.1. All authors should disclose in their manuscript any financial or other substantive conflict of interest that might be construed to influence the results or interpretation of their manuscript. All sources of financial support for the project should be disclosed.

4.7.2. Examples of potential conflicts of interest which should be disclosed include employment, consultancies, stock ownership, honoraria, paid expert testimony, patent applications/registrations, and grants or other funding. Potential conflicts of interest should be disclosed at the earliest possible stage.

4.8. Fundamental errors in published works. When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in a published work, it is the author's obligation to promptly notify the editor of the Russian Journal of Earth Sciences and cooperate with Publisher to retract or correct the paper. If the editor or the publisher learn from a third party that a published work contains a significant error, it is the obligation of the author to promptly retract or correct the paper.

 

5. Duties of the Publisher

 

5.1. Publisher should adopt policies and procedures that support editors, reviewers and authors of the Russian Journal of Earth Sciences in performing their ethical duties under these ethics guidelines. The publisher should ensure that the potential for advertising or reprint revenue has no impact or influence on editorial decisions.

5.2. The publisher should support the Russian Journal of Earth Sciences editors in the review of complaints raised concerning ethical issues and help communications with other journals and/or publishers where this is useful to editors.

5.3. Publisher should develop codes of practice and inculcate industry standards for best practice on ethical matters, errors and retractions.

5.4. Publisher should provide specialized legal review and counsel if necessary.

 

Founder

 

The founder of the journal is the Geophysical Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences

Author Fees

Publication in the Russian Journal of Earth Sciences is free of charge for all the authors. The journal doesn't have any Article processing charges.

 

Disclosure and Conflict of Interest

 

Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in a reviewer's own research without the express written consent of the author. Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.

 

Plagiarism Detection

 

The Russian Journal of Earth Sciences editorial board uses native Russian-language plagiarism detection software Antiplagiat to screen the submissions. If plagiarism is identified, the COPE guidelines on plagiarism will be followed.

 

Preprint and Postprint Policy

 

Prior to acceptance and publication in the Russian Journal of Earth Sciences, authors are required to confirm that the submission has not been previously published, nor has been submitted. When referring to an article published in the Russian Journal of Earth Sciences the publishers suggest that the article (including DOI index) is linked to the journal's website (http://rjes.wdcb.ru). With the consent of the authors the articles accepted for publication in the Russian Journal of Earth Sciences may be pre-registered in Crossref assigning DOI index and the publication of abstracts. As part of submission process, authors are required to submit the articles, previously shared on personal or public websites, not related to other publishers.

Article Submission and Publishing Process

1. After downloading the articles the program monitors a number of formal characteristics of the loaded material and generates a prior notification to the author, sent by e-mail system. The system also generates a unique paper identifier used later as a DOI suffix (DOI – Digital Object Identifier).

2. Technical editor checks the availability and consistency of all materials submitted by the author in accordance with the above requirements. In the absence of comments the article goes to further processing (see paragraph 3 below), otherwise the author is requested to download the missing or requiring replacement components.

3. Editor-in-Chief or an authorized member of the Editorial Board examines the article and makes one of the decisions:

  • accepts the article for publication, possible minor editorial clarifications carried out by the Editorial Board (paragraph 5 below);
  • forwards the article to the unilateral "blind" review to one or more reviewers;
  • forwards the article to the author for processing according to the results of his own review, or on the basis of peer reviews;
  • declines the article if it does not match Journal's profile or based on false data and/or arguments.

 

4. The Editorial Board informs the author about all stages of processing, re-examines the revised article and, if necessary, sends it to a re-review.

5. Article, accepted for publication, is transferred to the editorial and technical staff, electronic components (animation, video, scripts) are forwarded to the technical staff of the Editorial Board.

6. The first and the most sensitive stage of technical processing is a translation of the text in LaTeX format, preparation of graphics files and descriptions of electronic applications to prepare an integrated LaTeX file as galleys of the article. Proofreading of galleys is done by a technical editor to check the compliance with the text, the use of standardized (recommended) units (SI units) and other technical requirements. Proofs are processed by a special program that provides automatic numbering of paragraphs, verification of compliance with references in the text with a list of references, generates unique identifiers of links, which are then used to generate XML files for Crossref, and also checks the text for the absence of non-Latin characters. The proofs of the article are not subject to any further editorial processing, all the issues related to the quality of articles and translation must be resolved before this stage.

7. The following stages of technical processing are carried out mainly with the use of software developed by technical experts of GC RAS (see paragraph EP Tools Used), and include:

  • pages composition in accordance with the journal standard and generating a printed version of the article in PDF format;
  • generating a set of HTML5 files in accordance with the structure adopted for the online version;
  • generating article metadata in XML formats to download them to Crossref and eLibrary;
  • conversion HTML5 files to XHTML format and generating EPUB3 structure;
  • generating a portable version in PDF format for smartphones.

 

8. Downloading the generated sets of files to the GC RAS server (http://elpub.wdcb.ru/journals/rjes/) and medtadata files to Crossref and eLibrary servers, then the author is notified of the publication of the article, and receives the output data.

Journal's mission

Russian Journal of Earth Sciences (RJES) publishes original papers with treatment of all areas of geology, geophysics and geochemistry, including geodesy, geoinformatics, ecology and physics of atmosphere and Ocean. Articles submitted by foreign scientists or international author teams are highly encouraged.

The Journal is published in English and in Russian and the issues are uploaded when ready without a given schedule. RJES is an open access journal.

Articles submitted to the Journal are passed through standard peer-review process. All articles are passed through standard editorial processing.

Accepted papers are published in high-resolution PDF format enhanced with local (to floats and references) and external (to documents in Internet) hyperlinks. The online version of the Journal is primary and considered as a version of record. The style of Journal is fully compatible with the typical scientific journals, so print companion can be easily produced by sending PDF version to printer.

The Editorial Board highly encourages including interactive and dynamic content into submitted articles, e.g. interactive maps, maps with dynamic paging (Google-type maps), animations, video clips in .avi, .mpg, .mp3, .flv, .swf, etc. formats (see Recommendations to Authors for more detail).

Along with the regular scientific articles the Journal started to publish the, so-called, interactive scientific records, i.e. integrated Flash and HTML5 presentations of lectures and reports which include video enhanced with synchronized slides, various transitions and pointers, subtitles, and tools of interactivity
