Transportation systems and technology

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

Establishers of the journal:

  • Emperor Alexander I St. Petersburg State Transport University
  • The Scientific and Educational Engineering Cluster “Russian Maglev”

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 branches related to it.

The journal’s readership:

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:

  • to integrate the results of fundamental and applied researches of Russian speaking scientists and experience of specialists of transport engineering industry into the international scientific community;
  • to become an international scientific base for representatives of higher school (scientists, postgraduates and students) and industry workers for discussion and exchange of experience in the sphere of transport industry;
  • to provide specialists (Russian speaking ones in the first place) with topical and trustworthy information about new technical solutions in transport sphere and all other spheres associated with it;
  • to build a new technological stage in Russia and in the entire world.


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).
