Publisher's Goals and Objectives
The books published by the scientific publishing house "Technology Center" are focused on the publication of original scientific solutions of applied character. By the applied character we mean the practical potential of systematic scientific work in the form of a monograph, which can be revealed in the process of implementation in different sectors of the national economy. Therefore, the process of issuing each monograph is preceded by an assessment of its potential, which is carried out by experts in two aspects:
‒ Assessment of scientific potential through the prism of systemic analysis;
‒ Assessment of applied potential through the prism of the content's practical significance.
These procedures are carried out at two levels:
‒ double blind review by expert scientists in a given field of knowledge;
‒ based on the decision by universities' councils that recommend a given monograph for publication.
