Peer Review Evaluation
Manuscript review process determines the procedure for peer review of scientific manuscripts submitted by Authors for publication in the journal “Autism and Developmental Disorders”.
The Editor of the journal “Autism and Developmental Disorders” publishes the works selected from the submitted manuscripts. The selection of manuscripts is based on the results of an independent double-blind peer review. The Editorial Board organizes a review procedure for all works submitted to the journal that correspond to its subject matter and rules for Authors. Peer review helps to improve the quality of the published materials as it determines the significance and originality of the submitted papers.
The journal implements a "double-blind" (anonymous) peer review process: the Authors are not provided the names of the Reviewers, and vice versa. The interaction of Authors and Reviewers is carried out only through the Editorial staff of the journal. Manuscripts rejected as a result of peer review are not re-reviewed. Other articles by Authors of such manuscripts are accepted for consideration in the usual way.
The Editorial Board assigns not less than two Reviewers for each manuscript.
The Reviewer selection process for the examination of the article is provided by the Editor-in-chief, deputies of the Editor-in-chief, and members of the Editorial Board.
The paper is then sent to independent Reviewers – subject specialists from Russia or abroad who research or practice in the same (or similar) field as the Author. Please note that neither co-Authors, nor co-workers can be reviewers.
Reviewers are notified that the manuscripts sent to them for review are the intellectual property of the Authors and are classified as non-disclosure information.
The outcomes of the review process are discussed by the members of the Editorial Board before the final decision is made. Based on their recommendations as well as on the judgments made by the Reviewers, the Editor may then accept or reject the paper, advise its revision, or suggest it be redirected to another journal.
The Editors inform the Author about the results of the review.
The review procedure period is from 4 weeks to 3 months from the date of registration of the manuscript (the date of assignment of a unique number of the received manuscript).
The Editor does not provide information regarding the manuscript (including information about its receipt, content, review process, critical comments of Reviewers, and the final decision) to anyone except members of the Editorial Board of the journal, the Author himself, and Reviewers.
Reviews are submitted upon request to any of the members of the Editorial Board of the journal, as well as to the Authors and specialized organizations.
The manuscript received from the Author is assigned a unique registration number, the Author is provided with anonymity during reviewing.
All incoming manuscripts are checked in the “Antiplagiat” plagiarism detection system.
In the case when a manuscript corresponds to the requirement of the journal and a positive result in the ꞌꞌAntiplagiatꞌꞌ plagiarism detection system is achieved, the manuscript is sent for examination to a specialist in a special subject area, as well as specialists in selective types of review.
The grounds for rejecting a manuscript prior to the peer review procedure are the following: violation of scientific citation standards, plagiarism, non-compliance with the requirements of the journal for articles, as well as the submission of a manuscript published earlier in another publication.
Interaction with the Author is arranged through the Online Publishing System.
For review, leading experts with the closest scientific specialization to the topic of the article, as well as specialists in the field of statistical data processing and scientometrics are involved.
The Editors have the right to invite Reviewers from among domestic and foreign experts, whose academic degree corresponds to a doctor or candidate of sciences, who have a recognized Authority in the field of knowledge to which the content of the manuscript belongs.
Reviewers cannot be the Author or co-Author of the work being reviewed, as well as supervisors of the applicant for a scientific degree and employees of the department in which the Author works.
Peer Review Procedure
A manuscript submitted to the Editorial office is registered with a unique registration number assigned to it. Manuscripts are allowed for review if they are prepared in accordance with the requirements of the journal, as well as those that have been checked in the “Antiplagiat” plagiarism detection system.

Interaction with reviewers is conducted by means of the Online Publishing System.
Reviews are discussed by the Editorial Board and serve as the basis for accepting or rejecting the manuscript.
