The network format of the journal and the free access policy allow providing the widest reach of readers and authors, which contributes to the high level of citation of published articles.
Publications in the journal "Modeling, Optimization, and Information Technology" are included in the systems of calculating citation indices for authors and journals.
The journal is indexed in the following systems and catalogues:
Peer review is the system used to assess the quality of a manuscript before it is published. Independent researchers in the relevant research area assess submitted manuscripts for originality, validity and significance to help editors determine whether a manuscript should be published in the journal.
1. Authors submit articles to the Editorial Board of the journal in accordance with the Rules for Authors on manuscripts submission for publication in a scientific journal.
Before preparation of application and sending documents to the editors, authors should carefully study the rules of preparation of the papers and other documents required by the publisher.
2. All the manuscripts are registered and assigned to the editors for internal peer review, including verification of compliance with the subject of the publication and submission requirements. If the article does not meet the qualification criteria for scientific texts, and a peer review revealed significant shortcomings in the content of the article, its linguistic style and arrangement, the editors send the author a reasoned refusal pointing out errors and omissions.
3. All articles accepted for consideration undergo mandatory “double blind” peer review. The tasks of reviewers include assessing the novelty and scientific significance of the work, the reliability of the research results, the content of the manuscript and the way of presentation, the correspondence of the manuscript title and abstract to its content, the identification of published works related to the research topic, which were not, but, in the opinion of the reviewer, should have been mentioned in the manuscript.
Members of the editorial board as well as external experts working in the scientific fields relevant to the topic of the article and not having obvious conflicts of interest with the authors of the work are involved in the review process. The reviewer is notified of the fact that the article is the intellectual property of the author. It is not allowed to disclose or otherwise use the content of the article before its publication.
