Aims and Scope

RUDN Journal of Agronomy and Animal Industries is an peer-reviewed periodical covering the latest research in the field of Agricultural Sciences. The journal is international with regard to its editorial board, contributing authors and thematic foci of the publications reflecting problems of various regions in the world.

Publishing mission - to make the results of scientific researches of Russian scientists available for foreign academics and to familiarize the Russian scientific community with relevant research in foreign countries and to present the scientific achievements of scientists from various regions of the world.
Particular attention is paid to the problems of agriculture and animal husbandry in regions with difficult climatic and other natural conditions.

The journal publishes original results of Russian and foreign scientific researchers and welcomes research articles, review articles, scientific reports, and bibliographic researches. The journal also publishes and disse­minates the results of fundamental and applied research conducted by international collaborations of scientists on the priority problems of the agricultural sector.

The most common topics include Agronomy, Animal industries, Veterinary, Veterinary-sanitary expertise, Land use planning and cadaster, Landscape architecture.

The editors are open to thematic issue initiatives with guest editors.

Submitted papers are evaluated by independent reviewers and the Editorial Board members specialized in the article field. All materials must comply with the ethical standards of scientific publications.

The editorial board accepts for consideration original articles in English or Russian. By agreement with the editorial board, the article may be published in two languages at the same time.

In order to expand our readership, we present our journal at scientific conferences, including the annual international conference “Innovation Processess in Agriculture”, which is traditionally held at the base of the Agrarian Technological Institute of RUDN University. Each year the conference attracts many agrarian specialists from different parts of the world and continents: Europe, Asia, Africa, North and South America.

The journal does not publish conference reports. Authors can significantly expand unpublished reports, supplement them with new original results and process them into full research articles, prepare according to the rules of the journal and propose for consideration to the editorial board.

Peer Review Process

The editorial board has the right to reject texts at the stage of pre-review; articles rejected by the editors at the pre-review stage are not subject to further consideration, the editors do not provide expert opinions on them to the author.

A double-blind peer review method is mandatory for the processing of all scientific manuscripts submitted to the editorial staff of the journal and not rejected at the stage of pre-reviewing. This implies that neither the reviewer is aware of the authorship of the manuscript, nor the author maintains any contact with the reviewer.

  1. Members of the editorial board and leading global experts in corresponding areas of sciences invited as independent readers, perform peer reviews. Editor-in-chief, deputy editor-in-chief or science editor choose readers for peer review. We aim to limit the review process to 2-4 weeks, though in some cases the schedule may be adjusted at the reviewer’s request.
  2. Reviewer has an option to abnegate the assessment should any conflict of interests arise that may affect perception or interpretation of the manuscript. Upon the scrutiny, the reviewer is expected to present the editorial board with one of the following recommendations:
    • to accept the paper in its present state;
    • to invite the author to revise their manuscript and address specific concerns before a final decision is reached;
    • that final decision be reached following further reviewing by another specialist;
    • to reject the manuscript outright.
  3. If the reviewer has recommended any refinements, the editorial staff would suggest the author either to implement the corrections or to dispute them reasonably. Authors are kindly required to limit their revision to 2 months and resubmit the adapted manuscript within this period for final evaluation.
  4. We politely request that the editor be notified verbally or in writing should the author decide to refuse from publishing the manuscript. In case the author fails to do so within 3 months since receiving a copy of the initial review, the editorial board takes the manuscript off the register and notifies the author accordingly.
  5. The editors conduct no more than three rounds of peer review for each manuscript. If, after the three-fold revision of the manuscript, the majority of the reviewers or the editorial board have significant comments on the text, the manuscript is rejected and removed from consideration. In this case, the authors are sent a corresponding notification about the rejection of the manuscript.
  6. If the author and reviewers meet insoluble contradictions regarding revision of the manuscript, the editor-in-chief resolves the conflict by his own authority.
  7. The editorial board reaches a final decision to reject a manuscript on the hearing according to reviewers’ recommendations, and duly notifies the authors of their decision via e-mail. The board does not accept previously rejected manuscripts for re-evaluation.
  8. Upon the decision to accept the manuscript for publishing, the editorial staff notifies the authors of the scheduled date of publication.
  9. Kindly note that a positive review does not guarantee acceptance, as the final decision in all cases lies with the editorial board. By his authority, the editor-in-chief rules the final solution of every conflict.
  10. The authors have the right to argue the decision of the editorial board to reject the manuscript and to remove it from consideration. To do this, they should send an appeal to the editorial board, addressed to the editor-in-chief. The appeal should include detailed reasons for the authors' disagreement with the decision of the editorial board (based on the conclusions of the reviewers), give reasons in favor of revising the decision, and send the revised manuscript (if such revision is appropriate). Disputes and requests from authors to revise the decisions of the editorial board are considered personally by the editor-in-chief at the meeting of the editorial board. The decisions made by the editor-in-chief are not subject to challenge.
  11. Original reviews of submitted manuscripts remain deposited permanently (not less than 5 years).
  12. Manuscript reviews are not published. Reviews can be sent to the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation in case of query.

Publishing Ethics

The journal's publisher, RUDN University, is a co-founder and a member of the Association of Scientific Editors and Publishers (ASEP), Russia, and supports the ASEP Declaration on the Ethical Principles of Scientific Publications https://rasep.ru/

The ethic policy of this journal is based on recomendations from international commettees:

ICMJE, WAME, COPE, EASE, Council of Science Editors, ORI

When developing these rules, the publisher and the editorial board of the journal used not only their editorial and publishing practice but also the experience of the journals published by leading international scientific literature publishers, such as Elsevier, Springer, Taylor and Francis, etc.

Editorial responsibilities

Editors have sole responsibility for acceptance or rejection of a manuscript. The manuscript may be rejected by the editor on the stage prior to peer-review for a solid reason (inappropriate topic for journal, clearly of poor scientific quality, the article was previously published elsewhere, essential contradiction to ethical principles of the Journal was detected). Editors should only accept a paper when reasonably certain. Editors should guarantee that the quality of the papers conforms to internationally accepted scientific and publication ethical guidelines. If there is conflict of interest of the editor with the author of the article, the article should be transmitted to another editor.

The editor transmits all the submitted manuscripts, which were not rejected according to the reasons stated below, for peer-review. The editor chooses the reviewers out of the most competent specialists on the topic of the article.

Editors should preserve anonymity of reviewers and should not tell the reviewers the names of the authors.

Editors should guarantee the quality of the papers and the integrity of the academic record and be willing to publish corrections, clarifications, retractions and apologies when needed.

Reporting standarts

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 behavior and are unacceptable.

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

Advertising Policies

The editorial board adheres to ethical standards in its work and, above all, defending the right to editorial independence. Placement of promotional materials and sponsorship can not influence in any way on editorial decisions and editorial content. The journal does not publish materials to accompany the advertising and does not sell advertising for specific articles. Advertising and information materials is not mixed with the editorial content.

All decisions on advertising placement are only accepted by the publisher. The editors reserve the right not to accept advertising materials, placement does not meet the publication policy.

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.

Originality and Plagiarism

Plagiarism takes many forms, from passing off another 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 behavior and is unacceptable.

The Editorial Board considers the following to be the forms plagiarism:

  • Use (word for word citing) of any materials in any value without indicating the source;
  • use of images, pictures, photographs, tables, diagrams, schemes or any other forms of graphical information presentation without indicating the source;
  • use of images, pictures, photographs, tables, diagrams, schemes or any other forms of graphical information presentation published in scientific and popular issues without approving by copyright holder;
  • use of the materials without written permission, the authors or copyright holders of which don’t permit use of their materials without special approvement.

The Editorial Board considers the following to be the forms of incorrect borrowing:

  • Absence of graphical highlighting of literal text citation when there are references to the source;
  • incorrect references (incomplete bibliographic description of the sources, which prevents their identification;
  • reference not to the first source of the borrowed text without clear indication of this fact (mistake in primary source determination);
  • absence of references from the text to the sources enumerated in the list below the article;
  • excessive citation (in case there are references to the sources and graphical highlighting of the cited text), the volume of which is not justified by the genre and aims of the article.

Only original works are acceptable for publication in journal. The journal does not allow any forms of plagiarism.

If the authors have used the work and/or words of others, that this has been appropriately cited or quoted.

The journal is using "ANTIPLAGIAT" software for plagiarism detection in all Russian-language manuscripts. The Google Scholar is used for English-language manuscripts. Papers will be rejected from any stage of the publication process (even if the article was published already) if plagiarism will be found.

Multiple, Redundant or Concurrent Publication

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

In general, an author should not submit for consideration in another journal a previously published paper. Publication of some kinds of articles (eg, clinical guidelines, 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.

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.

Authorship of the Paper

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.

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.

Hazards and Human or Animal Subjects

If the work involves chemicals, procedures or equipment that have any unusual hazards inherent in their use, the author must clearly identify these in the manuscript. If the work involves the use of animal or human subjects, the author should ensure that the manuscript contains a statement that all procedures were performed in compliance with relevant laws and institutional guidelines and that the appropriate institutional committee(s) have approved them. Authors should include a statement in the manuscript that informed consent was obtained for experimentation with human subjects. The privacy rights of human subjects must always be observed.

Statement of Human and Animal Rights

When reporting experiments on human subjects, authors should indicate whether the procedures followed were in accordance with the ethical standards of the responsible committee on human experimentation (institutional and national) and with the Helsinki Declaration of 1975, as revised in 2000 and 2008. If doubt exists whether the research was conducted in accordance with the Helsinki Declaration, the authors must explain the rationale for their approach, and demonstrate that the institutional review body explicitly approved the doubtful aspects of the study.

When reporting experiments on animals, authors should be asked to indicate whether the institutional and national guide for the care and use of laboratory animals was followed.

Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest

All authors should disclose (declare in the corresponding section of the manuscript) any financial or other substantive conflicts of interest that might be construed to affect the results or the conclusions of their manuscript.

Examples of potential conflicts of interest which should be disclosed include:

  • receiving funding in support of the research or the preparation of the manuscript, any connection (employment, consultancies, stock ownership, royalties, providing expert opinions) with organizations that have a direct interest in the subject of research or review;
  • application or registration of patents for research results (copyright, etc.);
  • obtaining financial support for any of the stages of research or the preparation of the manuscript (including grants and other financial support).

Explicit and potential conflicts of interest should be disclosed as early as possible.

Information on conflicts of interest received from the authors of the manuscripts is not provided to the reviewers and is available only to the editorial board when deciding on the publication of the manuscript. Also, information on conflicts of interest is published as part of the full text of the article.

Fundamental errors in published works

When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the authors obligation to promptly notify the journal editor or publisher and cooperate with the editor 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 correct or retract the paper or provide evidence to the editor of the correctness of the original paper.

Editorial Policy for Corrections to Published Articles

If inaccuracies and factual errors are made in the article that do not require retraction of the article, the editorial carries out the procedure for publishing the corrections.

The purpose of corrections made to a scientific article after publication is to convey truthful, accurate information to the reader, help avoid illegal borrowing, and eliminate erroneous data.

Any necessary changes will be accompanied with a post-publication notice which will be permanently linked to the original article so that readers will be fully informed of any necessary changes. This can be in the form of a Correction notice, an Expression of Concern, a Retraction and in rare circumstances a Removal.

Authors should notify us as soon as possible if they find errors in their published article, especially errors that could affect the interpretation of data or reliability of information presented. It is the responsibility of the corresponding author to ensure consensus has been reached between all listed co-authors prior to putting forward any requests for corrections or retractions to an article.

Any minor errors will not be accompanied by a separate correction notice. Instead a footnote will be added to the article detailing to the reader that the article has been corrected. Minor errors do not impact the reliability of, or the reader’s understanding of, the scholarly content.

The reprint of the article with corrections is carried out simultaneously with the retraction of the previous publication in case of multiple typos, incorrect citation, incorrect wording, incorrect facts, the need for corrections to the team of authors and other cases where changes are required that affect the interpretation of the article and at the same time the scientific integrity of the article does not remain unchanged.

Reprint of the corrected article may be initiated by the author (s), readers or the editors of the journal.

The procedure for correcting errors when reprinting an article

  1. If the editorial board has received information about the need to make corrections from third parties, the editor or the Editor-in-Chief will politely send the authors a notification about the need to analyze the identified errors.
  2. After an analysis of the identified errors, the editorial representatives report the need to reprint the article with corrections to the author (s) to agree on the corrections.
  3. The printed issue of the journal publishes an error message indicating the number / year and pages of the issue with the article in which the error was made, a description of the error and text with the corrected error, and retractions of the previous version of the article containing errors.

It is also indicated on whose initiative the retraction and reprint procedure is carried out.

In the online version of the journal, an error message is posted on the site page and / or PDF file with the article.

Readers are given the opportunity to work with the revised version of the article by posting it on the site next to the previous retracted version, in which the retraction was noted.

4. Information about the corrections, retractions and republishing is transferred to the to the Russian Index of Science Citation (elibrary.ru) and other databases in which the journal is indexed.

Retraction guidelines

In some cases the Editorial Board may consider retracting a publication.

The reasons for retraction may be the following:

  • it constitutes plagiarism, including borrowed pictures, tables, diagrams, etc. If plagiarism was detected after publication (see Plagiarism Policy);
  • third party expresses claims concerning copyrights for the article or its parts;
  • the findings have previously been published elsewhere before the date of its publication in the journal.

The published article has serious errors, which place its scientific value in question.

In such cases the Editor should initiate the revision, after which the article may be retracted. The Act on retraction is complied, which is signed by the editor-in-chief. The copy of the Act is being sent to the author of the article.

In this case the article is not physically withdrawn from the published edition and the file of the issue on web site. The Editorial Office publishes the notification on retraction of the article on the corresponding page of the issue content on the official site of the Journal. The Editorial Office should attentively consider issuing an expression of concern about the revealed problems in the published materials.

The Editorial Board considers it a responsibility of authors and reviewers to promptly inform about the missed mistakes and breaches revealed after the publication of the article.
