Experience of involving young researchers in reviewing manuscripts submitted to a scientific journal

Full Text:


This article describes the work of the Editorial Board of the Journal of “Almaz - Antey” Air and Defence Corporation during the period 2013-2020. The aim of this study was to evaluate the expediency of involving young researchers (aged below 40 years old) in reviewing manuscripts submitted to the journal, as well as to analyse the quality of their work. It is shown that young researchers conduct reviews with a sufficient level of quality and in a timely manner. An analysis of 642 reviews allowed a dependence of the average review time by scientists up to 40 and those older than 40 years to be constructed. As a result, the expediency of attracting young researchers as reviewers was confirmed, since both the quality of the work and the review time was comparable for young and experienced researchers.
