The international scientific peer-reviewed journal Informatics and Mathematical Methods in Simulation was founded in 2011 by Odessa National Polytechnic University. 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 problem.

Informatics and Mathematical Methods in Simulation is included in the list of scientific professional editions of Ukraine (Technical sciences) under the category B of the Ukrainian Ministry of Education and Science order No 1473 of November 11, 2020.

The Journal publishes articles on specialities:

- Software Engineering;

- Computer Sciences;

- Cyber Security;

- Automation & Computer Integrated Technologies (Control Systems).

Peer review

Reviewing of articles submitted for publication in the journal is carried out by the method of double independent anonymous reviewing. Articles are accepted for publication, regarding which, after the necessary revision (if necessary), positive feedback from both reviewers was received.
