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.

RUDN University Chemist: Algae Can Both Purify Lead-contaminated Water and Create Biofuel

Lead is one of the most common heavy metals that pollute the environment. The level of lead pollution is constantly growing because of its use in the production of batteries, paints, and fuel. Basically, lead enters the environment through the wastewater of production facilities. From there, it affects the entire ecosystem. One of the ways to purify water from lead is bioremediation. Toxic metal is absorbed by microorganisms that become resistant to it, for example, through increased accumulation of lipids. RUDN University chemist together with colleagues investigated the possibility of using microalgae Chlorella Sorokiniana for bioremediation. Chemists have also shown that the protective mechanisms of algae not only reduce the level of pollution, but also increase the potential of using microorganisms as biofuels.
