The Łukasiewicz Research Network ‒ Institute of Aviation in Warsaw was first established back in 1926 (then the Technical Research Institute of Aviation – IBTL) and in the years since has been involved in some way the testing of nearly all Polish-designed aircraft. Research results were first published in IBTL Reports. In the wake of WWII, from 1951 on, the Institute of Aviation began publishing its results in a scientific journal, known as the Transactions of the Institute of Aviation. Since 30 Mar 2019, this journal, now published by the Łukasiewicz Research Network ‒ Institute of Aviation, has been named Transactions on Aerospace Research, in order to underscore its status as a platform where all scholars, scientists, and engineers from around the world interested in aviation and space sciences are welcome to publish the results of their research.

The main aim of Transactions on Aerospace Research is to facilitate the exchange of information in the area of aerospace research. In general we publish new and original articles dealing with various aspects of aerospace engineering:

  • aerodynamics and aeroacoustics
  • avionics
  • performance, stability, and control
  • structures
  • materials
  • propulsion
  • navigation and guidance
  • maintenance and diagnostics
  • manufacturing
  • safety and reliability
  • vibrations and aeroelasticity
  • etc.

However, we also publish papers in other fields of science that relate to aviation and space exploration, including:

  • astrophysics,
  • astronomy,
  • remote sensing,
  • photogrammetry,
  • atmospheric sciences,
  • aviation and space law,
  • aviation and space economy,
  • aviation and space organization,
  • aviation and space medicine,
  • history of aviation and space technology,
  • aerospace communication
  • etc.

Occasionally we also accept papers from other related areas, such as wind engineering or hydrodynamics.

Each article is peer-reviewed before being accepted for publication. The journal applies the “double-blind review process,” which means that author/authors and reviewers are not aware of each other’s identities.

Transactions on Aerospace Research publishes in the Open Access system. For authors, publishing in an Open Access journal offers increased citation rates, quicker impact, and wider research collaborations. Authors publishing in Transactions of Aerospace Research are exempt from the APC fee. This means that no additional fees are charged, such as a fee on the number of pages ("Page Charges"), or fee for acceptance of the manuscript ("Submission Fee").

The journal is indexed in various databases, such as EBSCO Discovery Service, Summon (ProQuest), WorldCat (OCLC), TEMA Technology and Management, Index Copernicus and BazTech.

The Editorial Board accepts articles in English (American English is preferred; British English may also be used; in either case grammar usage and spelling must be consistent throughout the article). In exceptional cases considered justified by the editorial board, an article may be accepted in Polish.


The title of an article should explain as concisely as possible the topic discussed. If possible, it may name the main findings. Titles should not contain any abbreviations or complex subordinate sentences.


The title should be followed by the first name and surname of the author, followed in the next line by their affiliation (the name of the institution they work for and its full address). When there is more than one co-author, the name of each author should be marked as follows with their affiliation (the name of the institution they work for and its full address):

Name Surname,1 Name Surname2

1 Department, Faculty, University, university address
2 Department, Faculty, University, university address
The author’s email address (1) • The author’s ORCID number (1)

* Corresponding author’s email address

Below, the authors’ addresses should be given. The editors assume that the first name on the list of co-authors is the person who can be contacted.


Each item must be preceded by an abstract, 120 to 200 words in length. It should summarize the full content of the article, including:

  • a brief introduction, where the objectives of the work are be presented
  • a concise description of how research proceeded and what conclusions were arrived at. Results are here presented concretely and concisely, without additional description.


A minimum of three keywords, the first of which is the name of the discipline that the work refers to.


Every abbreviation should be explained immediately after it is presented in the text.


Mathematical formulas (including those written in a formula editor) published in technical publications are subject to the following rules:

  • variable names and single- and two-letter indices should be written in italics,
  • digits and physical units (m, sec., kg) should be written in plain font, as should be physical and mathematical constants (e, , π, i) imaginary units, names of the function (sin, cos, tg, log, ln, etc.), three- and more letter abbreviations of words put in indices (const, kryt),
  • please play close attention to the distinction between the digit “0” used in an index, the letter “O” used as an index (also, neither of these should be confused with the degree symbol °),
  • please pay close attention the use of the variable "i", which when written straight is very similar to number "1",
  • the Latin letter "v" and Greek "v" should be (n) clearly distinguished,
  • formulas should be numbered, using a number written in round parenthesis on the right-hand side,
  • Greek letters should not be written in bold.


Articles intended for the publication in Transactions on Aerospace Research should be written in Microsoft Word (from the package Microsoft Office 2007 or higher) or an equivalent software package.

The article should be divided into logical chapters, individually numbered, as follows: INTRODUCTION, METHOD, RESULTS, DISCUSSION, CONCLUSIONS, REFERENCES. The length should not exceed 16 pages of typescript in the A4 format.


Should be provided as files developed in Corel Draw or Photoshop. Illustrations may be inserted directly into the text, or provided in separate, appropriately named files (with the locations where they should be inserted marked in the text). All pictures and photographs should not be lower than 300 dpi in resolution.

Tables, pictures, and photographs should be consistently numbered and submitted together with captions and sources. The captions for tables should appear above them, with left alignment, while those for pictures and photographs should appear under them, with center alignment. If a table, picture, or photograph is drawn from or adapted from a previous publication (by the same author, or by a different author or set of authors), the appropriate bibliographic reference should be made, e.g. [5] or [Kaczorek, 2009] or [adapted from Karczorek, 2009]. If a picture or photograph is the author’s own work and is published here for the first time, they should be labeled as [author’s own image]. If a table is the author’s own work and is published here for the first time, it does not need to be marked in any way – rather, the title of the table should indicate that the information shown in the chart represents the findings of the present study.


Directly after the main text (before the bibliographic list) should come information about the sources of financing the publication and the contribution of other people, research centers, associations, etc., and their contribution to the publication (e.g.: "The work reported herein was performed under the framework of research project No. 7 of T07C 006 12 from Poland’s State Committee for Scientific Research, financed by the State Committee for Scientific Research").


All references for the bibliographic should be marked in the text with Arabic numbers in square brackets – [1], [2], etc. The bibliography should be quoted according to ASME style.
