The publication in a peer-reviewed journal is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of authors and their institutions. Peer-reviewing of the articles makes it possible to follow the scientific school in the presenting research. Therefore it is important to harmonize the ethical principles for all parties involved in the publishing process: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer, the publisher.
The series “Mathematics and Physics” was founded during the first months after Siberian Federal University (SFU) establishment. The main goals of the series are the development of fundamental research in the field of mathematics and physics at SFU, providing an international research priority of the works by our professors, post-graduate and PhD students as well as the integration of “SFU Journal” into the international information space. For the achievement of these goals it was necessary to ensure the high level of the scientific articles, accepted for the publication. It is reached at present by thorough peer-reviewing of the articles by a number of leading experts in sciences.
The Journal has the system of on-line submission and reviewing of the articles which complies the experience of the leading international journals. The Journal provides free access to all published articles: All-Russian Mathematical Portal, the site of SFU electronic library and the site of the Journal. We want to convey the content of the periodical to the broadest possible audience of scientists.
Another important feature is that the Journal is bilingual: the authors have got the possibility to publish their papers in English or Russian (according to their desire). The Russian-language authors presenting their articles in English are provided with the possibility of articles’ proof-reading. For the final submission the authors can use the proposed English and Russian templates.
I strongly believe that “SFU Journal” and its “Mathematics and Physics” series will occupy an important place among other journals in the international information space.
