1.1. Journal “Applied Mathematics and Control Sciences” (Appl. Math. Control Sci.) is a periodical peer-review scientific journal (ISSN of the printed version – 2429-9873, ISSN of the electronic version – 2782-4500). Journal "Applied Mathematics and Control Sciences” is registered by the Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology, and Mass Media (Roskomnadzor), Certificate Nr. FS77-58826 from June 28, 2014.

1.2. The founder and publisher of the Journal is Federal State Autonomous Educational Institution of Higher Education "Perm National Research Polytechnic University”.

1.3. At work the Editorial Board of the Journal follows The Russian Federation Law of December 27, 1991, Nr.2124-1 “Concerning Mass Media”, The Russian Federation Law of July 10, 1992, Nr.  3266-1 “Conecrning Education”, Federal Law of August 22, 1996, Nr. 125-FZ “ Concerning Higher and Postgraduate Vocational Education”, Statutes of Federal State Autonomous Educational Institution of Higher Professional Education "Perm National Research Polytechnic University” and Statutes of Journal Editorial Board “Applied Mathematics and Control Sciences”, the policy of the scientific Journal “Applied Mathematics and Control Sciences” with regard to ethical practices in publishing papers which are accepted and approved by the Editorial Board. 


2.1. First, the materials submitted to the Editorial Board are checked:

2.1.1. If the submitted package complies with the requirements of the Editorial Board, which are available at the website of the Journal for Authors;

2.1.2. If manuscripts meet the submission guidelines which can be found at Publication Terms of “Applied Mathematics and Control Sciences” website page for Authors and available in the example of a manuscript.

2.2. Manuscripts submitted not in accordance with Publication Terms of “Applied Mathematics and Control Sciences” will not be accepted; in this case an author will be informed that the manuscript has been rejected because it does not comply with the Terms.

The graphic symbol of the journal

The graphic symbol of the journal since 2014 has been the Lorenz attractor or "Butterfly's Wings".
Since 2023, Butterfly's Wings has also been used on the new cover of the journal. 

The official title of the journal is written in two languages: Russian and English.

The front cover features the name of the journal, the University logo, and the sign of the Decade of Science and Technology in Russian language. The thumbnail of the front cover is used on the first page of each article, where the metadata of the article is given in Russian language.

The back cover features the name of the journal Applied Mathematics and Control Sciences, the PNRPU logo, and the Decade of Science and Technology in English language. The thumbnail of the back side of the journal is used on the second page of each article, where the metadata of the article is given in English language.


The Lorenz attractor is a topological structure in the three-dimensional phase space of a dynamical system described by three ordinary differential equations, was discovered by Edward Norton Lorenz and named after him.

Edward Norton Lorenz since January 01, 1988 was a foreign member of the USSR Academy of Sciences in the department of oceanology, atmospheric physics and geography (geophysical hydrodynamics), the Russian Academy of Sciences since 1991. Also in 2004, Lorenz received the highest award of the Russian Academy of Sciences – the Grand Golden Lomonosov Medal for his pivotal contributions to the development of general circulation theory of the atmosphere.
