Guidelines for authors of «Avtomatika i Telemekhanika» and «Automation and Remote Control» journals

Important: If your article is accepted, and you send a revised or final version, please do not resubmit the article, but use this procedure. Otherwise, editorial work with the article significantly slows down. Authors are not charged for publications.

Journal scope

«Automation and Remote Control» publishes results in the field of theory and practice of automatic control on the following topics: control theory (linear systems, nonlinear systems, stochastic systems, robust and adaptive systems, optimal control), network control, control in technical systems, mass-service systems, control in intelligent systems, control in social-systems, economic systems, control in medical-biological systems, information technology in management, optimization and operations research, data analysis, reliability, and technical diagnostics. Each article falls into one of the sections.

The journal also publishes reviews of the current state of the theory and practice of automatic control (section «Reviews»), reports on scientific conferences, materials of scientific discussions, and reviews of new books (section «Chronicle»).

General requirements

  1. The journal "Avtomatika i Telemekhanika" accepts articles written in Russian. Articles published in Avtomatika i Telemekhanika are subsequently translated into English for publication in Automation and Remote Control. Editorial Board has the right to invite articles not published in Avtomatika i Telemekhanika for publication in Automation and Remote Control.

  2. Only open research results are considered for publication. The editorial board is entitled to request the authors to provide an expert opinion on the possibility of publication in the open press.

  3. The article should correspond to the journal publication ethics. In particular, the article should not contain borrowings without indicating the sources. All incoming articles the editorial office checks for plagiarism with the help of the service provided by the platform In case of plagiarism, the editorial board reserves the right to inform the general public.

  4. You must use the Journal’s LaTeX template to submit an article. Links to the latest version are available at the end of this page. For the initial submission, save the article created using the Journal’s LaTeX template in PDF format and upload it to the Mathnet editorial system (via Submit a manuscript link on the journal page). Please note that all the metadata must be completed in both Russian and English.

    We recommend using Overleaf to create your article’s files, as it will allow you to prepare both the PDF required for initial submission via the Mathnet editorial system and the LaTeX files required for further publication.

    For more information about the article submission, please refer to technical requirements page.

Title page of an article

  1. Full names of the co-authors, indicating their degree, affiliation(s), and e-mail address (for each of the co-authors).

  2. Article title.

  3. Article abstract as a separate paragraph of up to 100 words, designed for a wide range of readers and accurately and fully reflecting the scientific essence of the article.

  4. 3-10 keywords as a separate paragraph.

The length of the article (excluding reviews) should not exceed 16 pages (12pt font at double interval), including the appendix, the literature list, tables, and figures.

Article structure

  1. The article should begin with an introduction, which includes the substantive formulation of the question addressed in the article, a brief history of the problem, and an explanation of where and when this problem arises in the solution of control tasks. If the problem is one of analyzing some mathematical model, it should be explained how this model flows from the content of the problem.

  2. The main text of the article gives a mathematical statement of the problem; formulated statements and obtained results should be described and explained in detail, and all the necessary evidence should be put in the Appendix.

    The rarely used special terms and designations need to be clarified. It is highly undesirable to use abbreviations (except for a very limited number of common ones).

    The article should be written using terminology specific to the field of knowledge covered by the article.

    In order to avoid terminological distortions when translating the article into English, authors are advised to attach to the article a list of the most accurate (within the scientific direction to which the article refers) English-language equivalents for the special terms used.

  3. The final part of the article (section «Conclusions») should contain a discussion of the obtained results, methods of application, and technical (or applied) direction.

  4. The "Acknowledgements" section, if necessary, should be placed between the "Conclusions" section and the list of literature; the "Acknowledgements" section does not allow the inclusion of information on financial support for the research. Financial support is reported as a note on the first page of the article.

  5. If additional material with all the input data for the description of the study is available, a public link to this material should be provided in the "Appendix" section.

  6. It is recommended that the article be divided into numbered sections with titles that correctly and fully reflect their content.

Formula design

The formula numbers are shown on the left in parentheses. If the number of numbered formulas is more than 20, double numbering is allowed (the first digit is the number of the section, and the second is the number of the formula within the section; for example, (3.2) is the second formula of the third section).

The letter «Ï» is added to the numbers of formulas in the Appendix; for example (Ï.2), the second formula in the Appendix.

Do not number formulas that are not referenced in the text of the article or in the Appendix.

Tables and figures design

The table rows and columns' names, and the header should be short but not abbreviated.

All bulky inscriptions in the figures should be replaced by numbers or letters and their explanations put in the text of the article or in the signature of the figure.

Reference style

The list of references should follow the standard adopted in the journal (see examples). Works in the list of references are numbered strictly in the order of their mention in the text of the article. Links to electronic publications are allowed. For articles having DOI, it is advisable to specify it immediately after the reference to the article. When using references to articles in Russian journals with parallel translation in foreign (such as ARC), references to translated versions of these articles are added.
