Aims and Scope

  1. For a long time the Journal was an edition where the new scientific results of Russian scientific schools had been published. Now the Journal is focused on both Russian and foreign scientists, working in the priority research areas of Samara State Technical University because the main purpose of the journal is an open dissemination of scientific knowledge among Russian and foreign scientists.

  2. The papers and reviews published in the Journal are devoted to the following topics: “Differential Equations and Mathematical Physics”, “Mechanics of Deformable Solids”, “Mathematical Modeling, Numerical Methods and Software Systems”.

  3. The Journal pays special attention to the following tasks:
    • attraction of highly qualified authors, editors and reviewers to the Journal;

    • ensuring a high scientific level of reviewing all incoming manuscripts;

    • compliance with COPE standards.

  4. The target audience of the journal is the scientists working in the following topics: “Differential Equations and Mathematical Physics”, “Mechanics of Deformable Solids”, “Mathematical Modeling, Numerical Methods and Software Systems”.

Section Polices

  1. The original articles, review articles, short communications, and other manuscript types (Biographies, Letter to the Editor, Commentary, and etc.) published in the Journal are devoted to the following topics: “Differential Equations and Mathematical Physics”, “Mechanics of Deformable Solids”, “Mathematical Modeling, Numerical Methods and Software Systems”.

  2. The Journal does not publish promotional materials.

  3. Only one article of the same author could be published in the current issue, if there are several ones in editor's hand. This article is chosen by the editorial board. The second one could be published in next issue, and so on. The editorial board is entitled to make a decision of publishing at most two articles of the same author simultaneously on extraordinary occasions.

  4. All content of this journal is indexed in databases.

Research Articles

  1. Research articles present original research and address a clearly stated hypothesis, goals, and questions. Papers should provide novel approaches and new insights into the problems addressed.

  2. All manuscripts should be prepared with LATEX 2ε (our LATEX template should be used) and sent to the Editor by the on-line manuscript submission service.

  3. Generally, the text is limited to 7,500 words or 30 pages (without bibliography), with no more than a total of 8 tables and/or figures and generally at least 10 and not more than 50 references. Some manuscripts take more words and/or references (by permission of the Editor), others less.

  4. All research articles should be structured (e.g. following the IMRaD style: introduction, methods, results and discussion).

  5. Authors should follow the guidelines for writing a manuscript for publication.

  6. The contributed original article should be a completed scientific research. It should not have been published, or be in process of publication in other editions.

  7. All research articles are sent to peer review.

Review Articles

  1. Review articles are an attempt by one or more authors to sum up the current state of the research on a particular topic. Ideally, the author searches for everything relevant to the topic, and then sorts it all out into a coherent view of the “state of the art” as it now stands.

  2. Review articles should inform about:

    • the main published results in a field;

    • recent major advances and discoveries;

    • significant gaps in the research;

    • current debates;

    • future directions and prospects.

  3. Review articles can vary greatly in length. The review articles may range between 8,000 and 40,000 words or between 30 and 90 pages (bibliography, tables and figures also included).

  4. Only review articles from experts in the field will be considered for publication.

  5. All review articles are sent to peer review.

  2. Short communication is not intended to publish preliminary results, only if these results are of exceptional interest and are particularly topical and relevant.

  3. The submission order and the structure of a short communication are similar to those of an research article.

  4. It should be no more than 2,500 words or 10 pages (without bibliography), and could include two figures or tables. It should have at least 8 references.
