Procedure for Review and Peer Evaluation of Manuscripts. Reviewer Responsibilities

Posted in Terra Artis(EN)

All materials submitted for publication in the Terra Artis. Art and Design journal (hereinafter the journal) are peer reviewed.

All materials (research articles,  reviews, etc.) submitted for publication in the journal are subject to preliminary assessment by the publishing editor or Editor-in-Chief of the journal to ensure compliance with the established formal requirements for published materials (topic, permissible size, structure, formatting, keywords and abstract both in Russian and English, list of sources and references, necessary contact information, permissions to publish images, etc.) and to check that no unauthorised borrowings of text, illustrations, tables, etc. are to be found in the manuscript.

If the article is submitted by a PhD student (or a master’s student), a review-recommendation by their academic advisor must be attached, indicating the advisor's academic degree, academic title, position, place of work, and contact information and certified with the advisor's signature and the organisation's seal.

In case the submitted material is rejected based on the results of the preliminary review, the author will be sent a written notification.

All materials that are not rejected following the preliminary review are subject to mandatory independent scientific peer review either by a specialist with the closest scientific specialisation to the article's topic and holding a candidate’s or doctoral degree, or by a practitioner with experience and professional recognition in a field that is as close as possible to the topic of the material. All reviewers should have scientific articles related to the field of the topic of the reviewed material and published in the last 3 years.

Peer reviews can be conducted by external experts and the members of the journal's Editorial Board, provided there is no conflict of interest (such as author-reviewer hierarchical relationships, academic supervision/co-authorship, etc.).

The peer review is double-blind.  The authors’ identities are not disclosed to the reviewers. Unless otherwise agreed in writing with the individual reviewer, the reviewers’ identities are not disclosed to the authors.

The decision to appoint a reviewer is made by the publishing editor or the Editor-in-Chief of the journal.

Peer reviewing voluntary and unpaid. The reviewer can choose to decline the review request, but must notify the editorial office within 5 days of receiving the article.

Peer review of research manuscripts should enable the reviewers to provide substantiated answers to the following questions:

1) Does the content of the article correspond to the topic stated in its title?

2) What constitutes the academic novelty (originality) of the material (if any)?

3) What constitutes the informational novelty (originality) of the material (if any)?

4) How does the reviewed material relate to the existing literature and contemporary research on the relevant subject matter (whether it was taken into account, used, borrowed, compiled, etc.)?

5) Are there any signs of unauthorised borrowing or other violations of research ethics by the author in the material?

6) What constitutes the practical significance of the material (if any)?

7) Is the material presented in a clear manner? Does it follow the general and specific requirements for the structure of the publication, language and style of presentation, terminology used, clarity of tables, diagrams, figures, and formulas, correct formatting of endnotes, and the accuracy of the bibliography, etc.?

8) How accurately are digital data used, how are calculations made, etc.?

9) Is the reviewed material of interest to the journal's readers (if so, why)?

Following the peer review, the reviewer must provide one of the following recommendations:

1) A recommendation for publication of the material as such (unconditionally).

2) A recommendation for publication of the material offering the author to consider the reviewers’ comments and suggestions and make improvements (at the author's discretion)

3) A recommendation to reject the submitted material with the right to resubmit.

4) A recommendation to reject the submitted material without the right to resubmit.

Peer review time is 2 weeks for an article.

The journal's Editorial Board is required to ensure that the reviewers maintain the confidentiality of any information about the research manuscript submitted for review. Reviewers commit to keep confidential the existence of the work and its content, any information about the author that becomes known to them, etc.

The text of the review must not include any form of indirect discussion of the author's identity (such as assumptions about their professional and social status, nationality, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, citizenship, or political stance).

If a conflict of interest is suspected, the reviewer must notify the editorial office within 10 days of receiving the article.

Reviewers are not allowed to discuss the manuscript being reviewed with any third party. Prior to the publication of the material, reviewers are not entitled to making use of or referring to the reviewed materials.

All reviews conducted by members of the editorial board are certified by the publisher, while reviews conducted by external reviewers are certified according to the procedures established at the institution where the reviewer works.

If the review contains recommendations for corrections and revisions to the article, the journal’s publishing editor sends the reviewer's comments to the author, along with a suggestion to consider them in preparing a new version of the article or to provide a reasoned rebuttal (partialor full). The article revised (reworked) by the author is then sent back for re-review.

If an article is not recommended for publication by the reviewer, it is not accepted for re-review. The negative peer review is sent to the author via email.

Receiving a positive peer review is not a sufficient basis for publication.

The editorial board has the right to provide research and literary editing of articles recommended for publication if agreed by the author(s).

The final decision about the advisability of publication is made by the journal's Editorial Board and is recorded in the minutes of the meeting of the Editorial Board.

There is no fee for publishing articles. Articles are published on a non-remunerative basis.

The originals of peer reviews are kept at the journal's editorial office for a period of 5 years from the date of publication of the material or from the date of the decision to reject the manuscript.

The journal’s editorial office sends copies of reviews or rejection letters to the authors, and will send copies of reviews to the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation upon request.

Editorial Ethics

Posted in Terra Artis(EN)

The Terra artis. Art and Design publishes original research that is representative of the level of contemporary art studies in Russia and abroad. The journal seeks to highlight the latest trends in art and design and to showcase the best examples.

Journal editorial ethics are a set of principles and rules that all those  involved in the process of academic publishing — authors, reviewers, editors, publishers, distributors and readers — should adhere to.


The Editorial Board is guided by the modern legal requirements of the Russian legislation regarding copyright and plagiarism and the ethical principles shared by the community of publishers of leading academic periodicals, and is responsible for the publication of copyrighted works.

The editorial policy of the journal Terra Artis. Art and Design follows the recommendations of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

Ethical principles in the activities of the Editorial Board and the publisher:

  • the relevance and novelty of the research
  • the reliability of results and the significance of the research work
  • references to the contributions from other researchers who have researched the same or related theme and mandatory inclusion of bibliographical references to the works used
  • all the contributors who made a significant contribution to the research must be listed as co-authors and the work submitted for publication must be approved by all the co-authors.
  • prompt action should be taken to correct significant errors and inaccuracies identified by the author(s) or by the editorial board.

Unpublished data contained in manuscripts submitted for review are not used or disclosed to third parties without the written consent of the author(s). Information or ideas obtained during the editing process are kept confidential.

The Editorial Board does not permit the publication of information if there are reasons to believe it is plagiarism or if it contains materials prohibited from being published.

The Editorial Board will not leave unattended complaints about the reviewed manuscripts or published materials, and in case of a conflict, it takes all necessary measures to restore the violated rights.

Ethical principles in the activities of the reviewer

The reviewer assessing author’s research  materials should be impartial and adhere to the following principles:

  • manuscripts received for review are considered as confidential documents and cannot be passed on for review or discussion by third parties who do not have the appropriate authority from the editorial board
  • the reviewer is obliged to provide an objective and fair assessment of the research results presented; personal criticism of the author is unacceptable
  • unpublished data obtained from manuscripts submitted for review will not be used for personal purposes
  • a reviewer who, in their opinion, does not possess sufficient qualifications for assessing a manuscript or cannot be objective, for example, due to a conflict of interest with the author or the organisation, must inform the editor and ask to be excluded from reviewing the manuscript

Ethical principles in the activities of the author


The author (or group of authors) recognise(s) their responsibility for the novelty and reliability of research results and adhere(s) to the following principles:

  • authors must provide reliable results of their research; intentionally wrong or falsified statements are unacceptable
  • authors must guarantee that the research results presented in the manuscript are entirely original
  • borrowed fragments or statements must be accompanied by author and source attribution. Excessive borrowing, plagiarism in any form, including hidden and veiled forms, unattributed quotes, paraphrasing, or appropriation of the results of someone else’s research, are unethical and unacceptable
  • contributions from all individuals who influenced the course of the research in any way must be acknowledged. Specifically, the manuscript must include references to works that were instrumental to the present research process.
  • authors must not submit manuscripts that have been submitted to another journal or have been accepted for review by another journal or have been previously published
  • all individuals who made significant contributions to the research must be listed as co-authors
  • individuals who did not participate in the research will not be listed as co-authors
  • If the author discovers significant errors or inaccuracies in the article during the review process or after its publication, they must promptly notify the journal's Editorial

Procedure for Retraction (Removal) of Published Articles. Author Responsibilities

Posted in Terra Artis(EN)

The authors guarantee that the article submitted for editorial review is an original work and has not been published before in any print and/or electronic publications.

The authors guarantee that the article lists all the authors and/or publications (materials) cited, as required by copyright law, and that all the required permissions have been obtained to make use of the results, facts, and other borrowed materials in the article.

The authors guarantee that the article does not contain materials that are exempt from publication in the open press according to the current legislative acts of the Russian Federation, and that its publication and distribution will not result in the disclosure of secret (confidential) information (including state secret information).

The rules for retracting a published article are based on the guidelines, recommendations and standards of international professional organisations (primarily the Committee on Publication Ethics – COPE), and other foreign and Russian professional organisations (in particular, the Association of Science Editors and Publishers – ANRI).

The purpose of retraction is to correct published information and to warn other authors and readers against using the results of the retracted article in their research, to ensure the integrity of conscientious research and to protect the journal’s reputation.

Reasons for article retraction:

  • Incorrect and/or unattributed borrowings (plagiarism) in the published article;
  • Duplication of the article in several publications;
  • Self-plagiarism with significant overlapping of research results and text with those already published elsewhere;
  • Evidence of falsification or fabrication (e.g., data manipulation);
  • Evedence of serious errors in the publication (e.g., incorrect interpretation of research results) that undermine its research value;
  • Incorrect authorship (omission of a deserving author; listing individuals who fail to meet the criteria for authorship);
  • Undisclosed conflict of interest;
  • Re-publication of the article without the author's consent;
  • Other misconduct.

Article retraction from the journal may be initiated following an official request to the editorial office either by the author(s) of the article or by other concerned individuals reporting evidence of misconduct; or at the initiative of the publisher or the editorial board.

Retraction is not dependent on the length of time since the publication date of the article in which research misconduct is found.

The procedure for article retraction is carried out following an investigation and a decision by the editorial board based on the results of the investigation. The decision to retract the article is recorded in the minutes of the meeting.

After the retraction procedure is completed, information about the retraction is sent to the information resources where the journal is indexed or hosted. The electronic version of the article posted on the official website of the publisher is marked as RETRACTED alongside the retraction date.
