The scientific journal “Geology and geochemistry of Combustible Minerals” is the successor of the republican interdepartmental collection, which was published since 1965. In 1992, the Presidium of the Academy of Sciences of Ukraine initisted to pablish the scientific journal “Geology and Geochemistry of Combustible Minerals”.

The founders of the journal are the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, the Institute of Geology and Geochemistry of Combustible Minerals, the Ukrainian Oil and Gas Academy.

Publisher: Institute of Geology and Geochemistry of Combustible Minerals of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine

Certificate of state registration of a mass medium – series KB No. 1967 of April 23, 1996.

For a high scientific level, relevance of the topic, the journal has the status of a scientific professional publication, approved by the Presidium of the High Attestation Commission of Ukraine (Department of Personnel Attestation of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine).

Editorial policy on publishing ethics

The editorial and publishing ethics of the journal “Geology and Geochemistry of Combustible Minerals” is based on the recognition of universal moral norms that are common to different social groups, in their application in the scientific and editorial process in order to adhere to  ethical norms in regulating relations between the main participants of this process: Author, Editorial Board, Editors, Reviewers. For journals published or co-founded by the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, the main issues of legal and ethical norms of cooperation, as well as the responsibilities of the Editor-in-Chief, Editors, Editorial Board are set out in the “Regulations on scientific editions and periodicals”.


Reviewing

Scientific articles submitted to the editorial board must be reviewed. The form of article review is external (review of article manuscripts by two leading specialists in the relevant field of science). The article is double-blind reviewed. The editor-in-chief / secretary informs the author of the review by e-mail.

If the reviewer provides an opinion on the revision of the article, the editor-in-chief / secretary, in agreement with the scientific editor, sends the article to the author for revision. The list of remarks, questions, comments of the reviewer is attached to the letter. The deadline for completion is determined by the editor-in-chief of the journal and should not exceed 5 calendar days from the date of receipt of the article by the author.
