About the publication

The scientific and technical journal «Cosmonautics and Rocket Engineering» is a printed organ of the Federal State Unitary Enterprise «Central Research Institute of Machine Building» (FSUE TsNIIMash) – the Head Research Institute of the Russian Federal Space Agency. 

The journal has been published since 1993. For the past 10 years it is included in the list of peer-reviewed scientific publications in which basic scientific results of dissertations for the degrees of Candidate or Doctor of Science must be published.

Practically, it is the only periodical publication in the country that covers all issues related to rocket and space technology: from concept development and long-term perspectives of the Russian space activity to specific technological solutions and their conversion developments in the interest of other industries.

Basic headings of the journal:
  • System Studies of space activities.
  • Design, construction, production and testing of aircraft. Dynamics, ballistics and flight control of aircraft and space stations.
  • Theoretical and experimental studies of issues of mechanics, aerodynamics, heat transfer, durability and structural dynamics of aircraft.
  • Research of applied tasks of space monitoring, and the development of new technologies. Systems of space communications, satellite navigation and coordinate-time provision.
  • Metrology. Quality and reliability assurance of space-rocket systems. Standardization and certification of rocket and space technology.

Names and contents of the journal headings correspond to two branches of science: physical and mathematical sciences (01.00.00) and technical sciences (05.00.00), and to five groups of scientific specialties: mechanics (01.02.00); Aviation, rocket and space technology (05.07.00); computer science, computer facilities and management (05.13.00); instrumentation, metrology, information-measuring devices and systems (05/11/00); radio engineering and communication (05.12.00) in accordance with the nomenclature of scientific specialties, approved by the order № 59 of February 25, 2009 of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation «On approval of the Nomenclature of specialties of scientific workers» with amendments by which the publication is claimed for listing.
