The procedure for articles to be submitted reviewed and published by the Notary Bulletin editorial board
1. Scientific articles should be sent by the authors to the Notary Bulletin editorial board via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. The article submitted to the editorial Board, is reviewed in terms of accuracy and compliance with the scientific profile of the magazine. Articles submitted for review without considering the Rules for articles design (Annex 1) as well as those that do not meet the scientific profile of the magazine and the Nomenclature of scientific specialties, essential for the award of scientific degrees, are not accepted for publication.
2. Each article submitted for publication in the magazine is tested to be free of plagiarism (Advego Plagiatus, Anti-plagiarism), as well as the internal review procedure, regardless of the availability of an external review obtained by postgraduates and applicants. Internal review is carried out by members of the magazine’s editorial council and (or) editorial board. The chief editor is also entitled to engage external reviewers (doctors or Ph.Ds., including practicing specialists) who are not members of the editorial council and (or) editorial board. To assure impartiality and independence of reviewing, the editorial board reserves the right to keep anonymous the reviewer’s name for the author and the author’s name for the reviewer (“blind” review).
3. Once an article is sent for the review, the reviewer is notified that it is the author’s intellectual property and it is not subject to disclosure. Thus, the reviewer cannot:
— use an article to be reviewed for their needs or the needs of third party;
— disclose the information contained in the article before its publication;
— transfer the article for review by another person without previous consent of the chief editor.
4. After getting the results of internal and external review, the meeting of the editorial council and (or) editorial board, attended by the chief editor, takes a decision whether:
1) to accept the article for publication;
2) to deny the publication;
3) to send the article for revision.
In the cases 1) and 2) the chief editor informs the author about the relevant decision of the editorial council and (or) editorial board.
If, in the opinion of the editorial council and (or) editorial board, the article needs to be improved, the chief editor sends a review to the author. The review should contain a list of censorious remarks and recommendations regarding rectifications. The article, revised by the author, is submitted once again to the reviewer who made critical remarks or to another reviewer chosen by the chief editor.
5. It’s banned to submit the article, submitted for reviewing to the Notary Bulletin, to other printed matters and (or) electronic media. It becomes possible only after the chief editor notifies the author about the refusal to publish it.
6. Reviews should be kept in the editorial office for five years and are due to be submitted to the Higher Attestation Commission at the expert councils’ request.
7. An unpaid oral agreement on non-exclusive right to use the article is to be signed with the author at the author’s application (the application sample is attached in Annex 2).
8. A written copyright license agreement for a non-exclusive right to use the article, which presumes the payment of a fee to the author, should be signed.
9. The decision of the fee payment is taken at the meeting of the editorial council and (or) the editorial board which is attended by the chief editor.
