INFORMATION FOR AUTHORS
The Radioelectronics. Nanosystems. Information technologies (RENSIT) is published two times per year. The content of the RENSIT falls into three categories: peer-reviewed scientific papers, brief reports and chronicle – general information issued by the editorial board. Scientific papers may be invited or contributed. Papers may include original contributions, but should preferably also be of a sufficiently tutorial or review nature to be of interest to a wide range of scientists. The RENSIT is indexed by Russian Science Citation Index (RISC) and abstracted by All-Russian Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of the Russian Academy of Sciences (VINITI RAN).
Scientific papers are subjected to peer review. The content should be original and should not duplicate information or material that has been previously published (if use is made of previously published material, this must be identified to the Editor at the time of submission). Submission of a manuscript constitutes an implicit statement by the author(s) that it has not been submitted, accepted for publication, published, or copyrighted elsewhere, unless stated differently by the author(s) at time of submission. Accepted material will not be returned unless requested by the author(s) at time of submission.
Material submitted for publication in the scientific section of the RENSIT should be addressed to the Editor, whereas administrative material is handled directly with the Editorial board. Submission in electronic format according to the instruction below is preferred. There are typically no page charges for contributions following the guidelines. No free reprints are provided.
Style and Format
There are no set limits on the length of papers, but they typically range from three to 15 published pages including figures. The official language of RENSIT is Russian: contributions in English language are acceptable. Manuscripts should generally be prepared in one column for printing on one side of the paper, with as little use of automatic formatting features of word processors as possible. The name, affiliation, address, telephone and fax numbers, and e-mail address for all authors must be included.
All papers accepted for publication are subject to editing to provide uniformity of style and clarity of language. The publication schedule does not usually permit providing galleys to the author.
Figure captions should be on a separate page in proper style; see the above guide or any issue for examples. All lettering on figures must be of sufficient size to be at least 10 pt in size after reduction to column width. Each illustration should be identified on the back or at the bottom of the sheet with the figure number and name of author(s). If possible, the figures should also be provided in electronic format. TIF is preferred, although other formats are possible as well: please contact the Editor. Electronic versions of figures must be of sufficient resolution to permit good quality in print. As a rough guideline, when sized to column width, line art should have a minimum resolution of 300 dpi; color photographs should have a minimum resolution of 150 dpi with a color depth of 24 bits. 72 dpi images intended for the Web are generally not acceptable. Contact the Editor for further information.
A version of Microsoft Word the preferred format for submission. Submissions in versions of TEX can be accepted in some circumstances: please contact the Editor before submitting. A paper copy of all electronic submissions must be mailed to the Editor, including originals of all figures. Please do not include figures in the same file as the text of a contribution. Electronic files can be send to the Editor in three ways: (1) By sending a floppy diskette or CD-R; (2) By attachment to an e-mail message to the Editor (the maximum size for attachments after MIME encoding is about 7 MB); (3) By e-mailing the Editor instructions for downloading the material form an ftp site.
The review process usually requires about three month. Authors may be asked to modify the manuscript if it is not accepted in its original form. The elapsed time between receipt of a manuscript and publication is usually less than twelve months.
Submission of a contribution to the RENSIT will be interpreted as assignment and release of copyright and any and all other rights to the RENSIT Press. Submission for publication implicitly indicates the author(s) agreement with such assignment, and certification that publication will not violate any other copyrights or other rights associated with the submitted material.
