Works of science (scientific papers) are protected by international and Russian copyright laws. A scientific paper is intellectual property and the subject matter of copyright protection.
Pleiades Publishing, Inc.; Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.; and Allerton Press, Ltd., publishers of scholarly content in the English language, notify the authors of the following important issues in manuscript preparation:
The editorial boards of journals do not accept manuscripts without copyright transfer agreement.
To simplify interaction between author(s) and publisher, please submit copyright transfer agreements (in the Russian or English language) together with the manuscript to the editorial board of the respective journal. The copyright transfer agreement can be sent as a digital copy of the original (this is preferable) or as a paper copy. The copyright transfer agreement should be filled out using MS Word or hand-printed and signed by all authors (coauthors and copyright holders).
These agreements are contracts of adhesion.
A copyright transfer agreement enters into force if a manuscript is accepted for publication in English. If for any reason your article is rejected by the editorial board of a journal, the agreement loses its force. The decision on acceptance of a manuscript for publication is the exclusive right of the editorial board of the respective journal. By signing the agreement, the authors guarantee that they have familiarized themselves and agree with its conditions.
Manuscripts and signed copyright transfer agreements should be submitted directly to the journal in which the authors plan to publish their article. Contact information is available on the web pages of specific journals.
If a manuscript is sent to addresses other than those indicated on journal web pages, it is not regarded as received and will not be returned; no replies should be expected regarding the status of a manuscript.
