RUDN physicist awarded IOP Publishing trusted reviewer status

RUDN physicist awarded IOP Publishing trusted reviewer status

Ekaterina Sorokina, Ph.D. in Physics and Mathematics, Associate Professor at the Faculty of Physics, Mathematics and Natural has been awarded a trusted reviewer status of the British Institute of Physics Publishing (IOP Publishing). Only 15% of reviewers are awarded this status.

Ekaterina has 5 years of hard work: writing high-quality and well-timed reviews of articles in highly ranked scientific journals of IOP Publishing. The result is getting into the top 15% of reviewers in the field of physical sciences without undergoing additional certification. Trusted IOP reviewer status confirms that the reviewer has demonstrated an exceptional level of competence and the ability to critique the scientific literature at a high level.

Without the peer review procedure, it is impossible to verify the accuracy and reliability of the text of a scientific article. The publication of papers that have not passed it often causes specialists to distrust the quality of the research conducted. A reviewer is a person who evaluates a scientific paper according to the established criteria of a scientific journal or publisher. A well-written review takes a lot of effort and time; it is a separate genre of scientific work that is especially valued in the research field.

What makes a good review?

  1. Very thoroughly and detailed, covering all sections of the work being reviewed.
  2. Relevant to the topic of the peer-reviewed paper and the broader scientific field.
  3. Includes a comparative analysis of existing literature.
  4. Submitted in a timely manner.
  5. Clearly substantiated and it meets journal editorial standards.

Biologists from RUDN University discovered the secret of flaxseed oil with long shelf life

Biologists from RUDN University working together with their colleagues from the Institute of Molecular Biology of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Flax studied the genes that determine the fatty acid composition in flaxseed oil and identified polymorphisms in six of them. The team also found out what gene variations could extend the shelf life of flaxseed oil. This data can be used to improve the genetic selection of new flax breeds. The results were published in the BMC Plant Biology journal.

A Chemist from RUDN University Developed a New Method for Combating Antibiotic Resistance in Microbes

Bacteria in biofilms are 1,000 times more resistant to antibiotics, disinfectants, mechanical treatment, and other types of stress. A chemist from RUDN University suggested a method to prevent the formation of biofilms and reduce the resistance of bacteria to antimicrobial medications. This might help increase the efficiency of antibacterial treatment in the food industry, medicine, and agriculture.

Chemists from RUDN University used crab shells to improve palladium catalysts

Chemists from RUDN University synthesized soluble biopolymers based on chitin from crab shells. Together with palladium, they form effective catalysts for organic reactions, and their nanoparticles can be re-used over ten times.
