Dear authors,

The Far Eastern Federal University: School of Engineering Bulletin (FEFU: School of Engineering Bulletin), electronic scientific journal, was founded in 2009.  (prior to 2012, Bulletin of the Far Eastern State Technical University Quarterly). 

The journal is aimed to present the members of the Engineering School and those of the entire Far Eastern Federal University as well as their colleagues from Russian and other countries, a possibility to publish the results of their research basing on the open access to and the wide exchange of information in order to promote progress in the field of engineering.

 In other words, the publication pursues the open access policy ensuring the availability of the research materials financed by the State for the research community. It means that, if the authors submit their works gratuitously, the readers (users) must not pay for being able to read them.

 The journal offers information on researches and achievements in the field of technical sciences, physics and mathematics, sciences about the Earth as well as architecture and construction. The task of the journal is to present the newest ideas connected with technological innovations, to inform wide circles of those interested in the results of scientific researches carried out by the professors and members of the Far Eastern Federal University as well as higher schools of the Russian Far East, Russia in whole, and the world scientific community.

The journal is a quarterly appearing regularly at the end of the third month of each quarter.

The Editorial Board includes specialists from Russia (Moscow, St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg, Khabarovsk) and abroad (Israel, Australia, China, etc.)

The journal is registered in the ISSN International Center (ISSN 2227-6858).

The journal forms part of the international database Ulrich's Periodicals Directory (USA) and EBSCO Publishing (USA), as well as that of the most representative Russian databasesVINITI Database RAS (Russian Academy of Sciences) which is the All-Union Institute for Scientific and Technical Information database, and Scientific Electronic Library (eLIBRARY.RU), which is Russian Science Citation Index, and the All-Russian Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of the Russian Academy of Sciences (VINITI).

FEFU: School of Engineering Bulletin has been added to the List of the Higher Attestation Commission (The list of peer-reviewed scientific publications in which the principal scientific results of the dissertations for the degree of the candidate of sciences and that of the doctor of sciences should be published, adopted on June 29, 2017).


The journal is a publication of open access.

We mean its free availability on the public internet, permitting any user to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles, crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without financial, legal, or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself. The only constraint on reproduction and distribution, and the only role for copyright in this domain, should be to give authors control over the integrity of their work and the right to be properly acknowledged and cited.

 We accept for consideration scientific articles including reviews, comments, and information materials on scientific conferences, etc.

To secure the quality of the materials to be published and for the sake of copyright compliance all the submitted materials undergo an authentication through the Antiplagiarism system and only after that they are sent for review.

 The FEFU: School of Engineering Bulletin is a journal of Science and Technology.

 We accept articles containing the results of research and practical developments in the fields of engineering and construction: technology, machinery, geology, mathematics, computer simulation, architecture, etc., as well as search for new technologies to be applied in building industry and architecture. The articles should be submitted in the form corresponding to the international standards. In particular, they should be supplied with the English-language annotation (160-300 words.)
