INFORMATICS AND MATHEMATICAL METHODS IN SIMULATION, founded in 2011 by Odessa National Polytechnic University, is an international peer-reviewed scientific journal. The main objective of the Journal is to provide a platform for interaction between researchers and practitioners to achieve solutions to complex problems and make significant progress in the solution of previously intractable problems. It also aims to explore solutions to scientific, engineering, and practical problems that lie at the intersection of applied, classical mathematics, and computer science. The Journal publishes surveys and original papers that cover theoretical and experimental aspects of mathematics, in particular mathematical modeling, algebra, matrix analysis, graph theory; information technology, as well as problems of information transmission.

INFORMATICS AND MATHEMATICAL METHODS IN SIMULATION is included in the list of scientific professional editions of Ukraine (Technical sciences) under the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine 463 from 25.04.2013 p.

Guidelines for Authors

Requirements for scientific articles and reports that are submitted to the journal
"Informatics and mathematical methods in simulation"

The editors offer the authors to review the requirements and follow them in the preparation of works that are sent to the journal. Deviations from the specified requirements are delaying publication of the article.

Requirements for content:

The editors reserve the right to return manuscripts that are not in accordance with the following instructions.

  • Results and Discussion,
  • Conclusions
  • Acknowledgements, Funding,
  • References.

2.1.1. Title page:

  • UDC (Universal Decimal Classification);
  • Authors: family names and initials of all authors;
  • Author affiliation: Institution and complete address with the postal code for each author;
