The RPRA Journal has been published since 1996. During 2010–2012, the RPRA was translated into English and published by the Begell House, Inc. publishing house entitled Radio Physics and Radio Astronomy, ISSN 2152-274X, website: http://begellhouse.com/journals/

The RPRA Journal maintains a policy of open access to published material. The RPRA Editorial Board recognizes the priority principles of free dissemination of scientific information, knowledge exchange and entirely excludes national, racial, religious, political or other types of restrictions on paper publication. The content of the journal is licensed by the COPYRIGHT AGREEMENT FORM.

According to the instructions of Budapest Open Access Initiative (BOAI), under "open access" to the peer-reviewed scientific literature, we mean its free availability on the public internet, permitting any users to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without financial, legal, or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself. The only constraint on reproduction and distribution, and the only role for copyright in this domain, should be to give authors control over the integrity of their work and the right to be properly acknowledged and cited (http://www.budapestopenaccessinitiative.org).

The RPRA Editorial Board obeys the ethics of international scientific publications, including the concepts of decency, confidentiality, oversight of publications and prevention of possible conflicts of interests and so on. In its activities, the Editorial Board is guided by the recommendations of the Committee on Publication Ethics (http://publicationethics.org), as well as by the experience of reputable international publishers.

REGULATION ON THE ETHICS OF SCIENTIFIC PUBLICATIONS is one of the main components of paper review and RPRA Journal publishing.

The RPRA is included into the List of scientific professional editions of Ukraine, approved by the Decree No. 1111 of 17.10.2012 of the Ministry of Science and Education of Ukraine, where the results of Ph.D. and Doctoral theses (in physics and astronomy) can be published (physics and astronomy).

The RPRA is included into the catalogue of subscription agency “UKRINFORMNAUKA” and represented in the national systems of abstracting: national depositary “Scientific periodicals of Ukraine”, national abstract database (DB) “Ukrainika naukova” (abstract journal “Dzherelo”), scientific electronic library of journals of Ukraine (NASPLIB), and in the scientific electronic library of Russia (ELIBRARY).

Since 2014, the RPRA journal’s scientific publications are provided with the CrossRef’s digital object identifiers (DOI). The Journal’s DOI is: 10.15407/rpra

The RPRA editorial board combines efforts of recognized experts in different lines of radio-astronomy, radio physics and electronics, including representatives of Ukraine, as well as Russia, USA, Germany, Norway, Poland and Korea.

The RPRA editorial board ensures the anonymous scientific reviewing of received manuscripts. The editorial board appoints reviewers from among the known highly skilled scientists and specialists of scientific institutions, who possess deep professional knowledge and experience in a particular scientific direction. The reviewer’s opinion is not final. In case of disagreement with the reviewer, the author has the right to give a rational argument to the Journal’s editorial board. The manuscript can be sent for additional reviewing. In case of thus arising conflict resolution, the editorial board’s decision is final.

The paper material should be an original work earlier never published or presented for publication in some other publishing house, that is confirmed by the author’s assignment of copyright to the RPRA Journal. No part of the paper published in RPRA can be reproduced, saved, passed somewhere in any form or by any means without preliminary permit of the editorial board.

Authors should ensure that they submit only entirely original works, manuscript material has never been published or submitted for publication by some other publishing house, that is confirmed by the COPYRIGHT AGREEMENT. Plagiarism in any forms constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable.
The RPRA Editorial Board takes responsibility to assist a scientific community in all aspects of publication ethics policy, particularly in case of multiple submission/publication and plagiarism.

The Journal publishes papers free of charge
