• In RAS declared unofficial sanctions against scientists

  • Russian scientists have faced difficulties in publishing their papers in the leading journals of Europe and the USA. Scientists themselves bind taboo with sanctions against Russia, written in Friday, September 12 "Izvestia".

    The worst situation among the staff of the Institute of problems of chemical physics (IPCP) RAS. As said leading researcher of the Institute of Paul Troshin, if earlier articles were sent to reviewers for a decision on the publication, now in 2008, after the war in South Ossetia, the main foreign publishers sent directly by the Russian scientist failure.

    "In the failure write what comes to them a lot of articles and selection of, say, very hard. But I had more than one hundred publications from 2009 to 2013 - and not a single letter, and now for the last three months already 6-7 letters of rejection, the last came two weeks ago. In this part of the articles written in collaboration with scientists," said Troshin.

    A similar complaint was voiced colleagues Troshina from IPCP. The chief researcher of the Institute Sergey Chapyshev, often articles are rejected on formal grounds. In addition, according to "Izvestia", often the failure is for not publishing the rating that is calculated from the average citation of publications per year. In such a practice seen logs of the largest publishing houses in Europe and USA, such as Wiley (Biophysical Chemistry, Chemical Physics Letters, Journal of America Chemical Society), RSC (Chemical Communications, Elsevier (Tetrahedron letters) and ASC (Organometallics).

    Trend confirmed the newspaper and in Russian scientific journals. Head of editorial Board of the scientific journal Mendeleev Communications Irina Macha said that the publication had formed an uneasy relationship with the foreign partner, Elsevier.

    In the Ministry of education, however, with the conclusions of the scholars are not agreed. According to the press service of the Ministry, the increase in the number of failures in the publications associated with an increase in the number of papers sent to scientists on the eve of the reporting period before the Federal Agency on science.
