For Science Bases and Science Citation Indexes

Publisher of the journal had a conversation with an officer of HAC and Ministry of Education of Russia Grigory B. Fomin, who stated the following: “…if your journal is interesting, then it will be published“.
But … in Russia and other countries, an indication that the article is scientific is only fact: Is the journal indexed by Scopus or Web of Science?
Large publishers like Thomson Reuters and Elsevier publish many articles indirectly associated with the space colonization. These publishers own Scopus and Web of Science. They select journals for inclusion in their Science Citation Indexes.
In our opinion, the name of the space profession in the space industry is defined only by the boundaries of specialist expertise and the breadth of his views. For example, the space ballist may know space materials science and geology. And, what kind of work does the head of private space companies, who can be anyone according to the diploma qualification, but understands no worse than the university teachers understand Applied Physics in practice? Such a person has enough knowledge to understand what it is about, and has business experience to understand how to implement the knowledge. Obviously, he must be a person like Richard Branson.
It takes years until specialists of space industry acquire breadth of scientific views and experience. This is due to the specifics of the accumulation of knowledge about space.
Write articles on serious space colonization is not an oven pies. For example, the famous journal “Vestnik FGUP NPO im. S.A.Lavochkina” (Herald of Federal state unitary enterprise NPO Lavochkin), which is published every quarter and has 16 articles in the first quarter at the beginning of its existence in 2009, and in the second quarter had 8 articles. As we know, NPO Lavochkin is the leading enterprise in the Russian space industry having a large staff. However, at the stage of the journal appearance the number of publications remained small for three years.
We are young journal, but we have already published very serious articles from the world-class scientists.
Our motto is the motto of Winston Churchil:
never give in, never give in, never, never, never-in nothing, great or small, large or petty – never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense.
