Transportation Systems and Technology

A quarterly issued research peer-reviewed journal. It has been issued since 2015 under management of Professor Anatoly Zaitsev (Editor-in-Chief):

Founders of the journal:

The journal’s scope:

The Journal comprises original articles on experimental and professionally focused (applied) researches as well scientific reviews in transport branch and other associated branches.

The journal’s audience:

The Journal is intended for engineering and technical personnel and scientific officers and researchers, who specialise in the sphere of passenger and freight transportation. It is especially useful for undergraduates and postgraduates of transport universities for the benefit of improvement of their competences and expansion of their field of vision.

The journal’s mission:

The mission of the Journal is to establish an international discussion forum to form a base of forward-looking ideas of fundamental and applied researches and developments, which would encourage integration of education, science, and production in order to achieve innovative development of transport and associated branches.
We publish scientific works which encompass:

  • Topical issues of transport development reflecting technical and technological, economic and ecological aspects;
  • Innovative solutions that ensure transport safety, create modern infrastructure, increase energy efficiency;
  • Unique multifunctionality of magnetic levitation technology;
  • Experience and prospects of commercial operation of maglev systems;
  • Current progress in fundamental researches, results of numerical simulation and full-scale testing of technical and technological innovation samples.


The articles published in the journal “Transportation Systems and Technology” are indexed in the international abstract and full text databases:

  • Russian Science Citation Index (RSCI) − on the basis of the Scientific Electronic Library (
  • Google Scholar
  • WorldCat
  • Ulrich's Periodical Directory

The Journal has been registered in The Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Media (Roskomnadzor). The Certificate of Registration № ФС77-53673 (FS77-53673) of April 17th, 2013

Since the end of 2017, the electronic scientific journal “Transportation Systems and Technology” has been issued both in English and Russian and published without charges (Platinum Open Access).
