Transactions on Aerospace Research

Open access

Institute of Aviation in Warsaw was established as a Technical Research Institute of Aviation in 1926, and had its share in testing of almost all Polish aircraft. Initially, the results of their work were presented in the "IBTL Reports". After the World War II - since 1956, Institute of Aviation have been publishing Transactions of the Institute of Aviation, a scientific journal. Currently it is published under the title Transactions on Aerospace Research to underline that everybody from around the world, who is interested in aviation and space sciences can publish results of his or her research here.

Exchange of information in the area of aerospace research is the main aim of the Transactions on Aerospace Research. In general we publish new and original articles dedicated to aerospace engineering. However, we also publish papers from other sciences, concerning aviation and space exploration like: astrophysics, astronomy, remote sensing, photogrammetry, atmospheric sciences, materials sciences, aviation and space law, aviation and space economy, aviation and space organization, aviation and space medicine, history of aviation and space technology, communication etc. Each article is peer reviewed before publishing.
