All authors will receive an email from the submission system asking them to confirm receipt and verify authorship of each paper that is submitted. Submission of a paper that has not first been approved by all authors listed will result in immediate rejection without appeal.

       Peer Review Statement

All research articles as well as research papers in "Contemporary Eurasia" have undergone a plagiarism checker and thorough peer review, which includes initial editor filtering and double anonymous reviewing by two referees.

      Plagiarism and Duplicate Publication:

Only original works are acceptable for publication in the journal "Contemporary Eurasia". It does not accept any forms of plagiarism, be it plagiarism of a text, an idea, or data. The “Contemporary Eurasia” journal uses the "Turnitin" plagiarism detection tool to compare submissions with already published articles. Authors should appropriately cite all quotations and not heavily lean upon large swaths of content from other publications, including your own publications. If there is significant overlap with existing sources (not including the submission’s preprint posting), the editorial office will evaluate the overlap and contact the authors for clarification or editing if needed. Significant, verbatim overlap with published sources indicating clear plagiarism will result in immediate rejection.


      Multiple submissions:

It is unethical to submit the same manuscript to more than one journal at the same time. Doing this wastes the time of editors and peer reviewers, and can damage the reputation of the author(s) and the journal if published in more than one journal as the later publication will have to be retracted.


All volumes and articles of the journal are available in Pan-Armenian Digital library:
