English and Russian are the Journal languages. It means we handle manuscripts either in English or in Russian.

All EJTA articles must meet the highest scientific quality standards, both in terms of originality and significance. Manuscripts are reviewed by two experts and editors of the journal before acceptance. Authors themselves are welcome to recommend reviewers for their article. We ask referees to review papers within two weeks.

All articles published in this journal represent the opinions of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the editors. Accepting of a manuscript implies that the work has not been published before.

How to publish the article: main steps

  1. Send abstract to Igor Grushetsky (editor(at), editor of the journal. If your paper meets subjects of the journal you will be asked to send full text for reviewing.
  2. Send full text (archive large files please) and recommend us two experts (names, e-mails) whom you consider as the best reviewers for your article. Your original manuscript will be sent to reviewers. We ask referees to review papers within two weeks.
  3. After reviewing we accept the paper (or not – it is quite rare case). You receive acceptance message by e-mail. Some revision and improvement (more or less) of the paper are always necessary. With acceptance message you get a list of requirements and suggestions on the article correction.
  4. Use our Instruction for Manuscript Preparation when preparing the paper.
  5. You make payment and send Assignment of Copyright (hardcopy). Do not delay AoC sending. Keep in mind that ordinary mail is very slow. Sometimes it takes about one month to get your letter. But we do not wait for AoC and publish your paper right after it is ready for publication and the payment have been received. If we don’t receive your AoC too long and the next paper is ready for publication, your paper probably will be removed up to AoC receiving.
  6. Supply us the following additional information:
    • your photo and photos of your co-authors in JPG format. File size should be 20–40 kb, Try to make the photos as good as possible.
    • short information about you and your co-authors: place of employment, position, scientific area, home page addresses, any other proper data. This information (and photos) will be placed on web page with abstract of your paper.
  7. While payment and AoC travel from you to us, you make the paper better according to reviewer’s and editor’s suggestions. We work with you on article improvement. When the article is ready for publication and the payment have come we place your article into the journal.
