MOSCOW, September 12. /ITAR-TASS/. Leading scientific media in Europe and the US are refusing to publish materials by Russian scientists, physics and chemists told the Izvestia daily.
The scientists say the tendency to refuse publications originates from the anti-Russian sanctions introduced by the EU and the US. Scientists sending their works to Western scientific magazines receive them back with no reviews. Clearly, no publications are possible without reviews.
Most refusals related to works of scientists working for the Russian Academy of Scientists’ Institute for Problems of Chemical Physics. Scientists say the surge of refusals began in June.
“A similar situation occurred back in 2008, in the time of the war in South Ossetia,” Pavel Troshin of the Institute for Problems of Chemical Physics said. “Most magazines would not forward the articles for reviews, but send them back to us.” The scientist says between 2009 and 2013, he had over a hundred publications in the Western media, not a single refusal, while within the last three months he received seven letters with refusals.
Quite often joint works of Russian and foreign authors are being rejected for rather formal reasons.
“Judging by the experience of 2008, a work written jointly with foreign authors is rejected immediately if it is sent from a Russian server, while, for example, if sent from Austria, it is accepted with no problems,” the scientist said.
