VII International Research & Practical Conference "Computer Hydromechanics"



"Hydrodynamics and Acoustics" is a successor of the journals "Applied Hydromechanics" and "Acoustic Bulletin" published by the Institute of Hydromechanics of NAS of Ukraine during two previous decades.

Our edition positions itself as a peer-reviewed open-access scientific journal.

We declare our devotion to the scientific reliability, honesty and common sense; uphold the necessity of struggle against a pseudo-science, fraud in science, cheating, juggling with facts, plagiarism and self-plagiarism.

Our goal is to include the Journal in the list of special periodicals by the Department of Personnel Certification of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine as fast, as possible, so we would be guided by the corresponding regulation acts, instructions and requirements. In future, "Hydrodynamics and Acoustics" will also aspire to be rated for leading international science-metric bases.

At the same time, we declare our loyalty to the principles formulated in San-Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA) and stress that no external administrative criteria (such as ratings, impact-factors and so on) could provide the understanding of true significance and value of the obtained scientific result. Originating from this point, we consider the extent open and substantial discussion in the professional community to be the only effective way for estimation of the scientific publication.

The Institute of Hydromechanics bears all expenditures for publishing of the Journal. Therefore, publishing in it is free for all our Authors. In our opinion, such mode of operation is the unique chance for keeping the high level of exactingness to the content of potential publications.

The Editorial Board of the Journal is qualified enough for providing of qualitative, principal and impartial assessment of the scientific plot of thematic manuscripts with involving, if necessary, of high-authority domestic and foreign experts.

Only working according to the above principles can establish the truly professional edition and not turn into a simulacrum of science that would always find the ability to be conformal with administratively imposed formal requirements of any level of complexity.
