In 2022, the Military Technical Courier, a scientific journal of the Ministry of Defence and Serbian Armed Forces, marks the 70th anniversary of its regular and continuous publishing.
The Journal was founded by a decree of the Chief of the General Staff of the Yugoslav Army in August 1952 in order to continue the tradition of five reviews of military branches and services (Artillery Courier, Tank Courier, Courier of Engineering and Chemical Units of the Yugoslav Army, Courier of Communications and Logistics and Support of the Yugoslav Army) which had been covering tactics and technique issues from 1947 to 1952. Chief of the General Staff’s decree of 16th December 1952 founding the first editorial board that “has a directive to be responsible for the review editing” was followed by the first issue of the Military Technical Courier in January 1953.
The Military Technical Courier follows in the footsteps of the outstanding military technical publications published in our previous countries (in the Kingdom of Serbia and Kingdom of Yugoslavia): Artillery and Engineering Courier (1905-1906), Artillery Courier (1926-1932), Infantry and Artillery Courier (1933-1941), Engineering Courier (1929-1940), Aviation Courier (1927-1941) and Nautical Courier (1933-1940).
Today, the Journal has an international character. It covers scientific and professional fields within the educational-scientific field of Natural-Mathematical Sciences, as well as within the educational-scientific field of Technical-Technological Sciences, and especially the field of defense sciences and technologies. It publishes theoretical and practical achievements leading to professional development of all members of Serbian, regional and international academic communities as well as members of the military and ministries of defence in particular.
It is indexed in important world databases: DOAJ - Directory of Open Access Journals, Redalyc - Scientific Information System, RINC - Russian Index of Scientific Citation, ISC - Islamic Citation Index, etc. It is a member of OASPA (Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association) and COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics).
The Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development of the Republic of Serbia categorizes "Military Technical Courier" with the categories M51 (reputed national journal) and M52 (quality national journal). The Center for Evaluation in Education and Science (CEON/CEES) categorizes the Journal with category A3 (journal of global potential and top publishing quality).
On the occasion of this year's jubilee, the Editorial Office would like to express their special thanks for the trust and help given to us in the past period by our colleagues from the Redalyc Scientific Information System. Redalyc, supported by the Autonomous University of the State of Mexico (UAEM), has indexed the Military Technical Courier in its database guided by its principles of supporting open-access and non-profit journals. Indexing in Redalyc enables a new, exceptional visualization of our journal, given that the indexed articles are visible in multiple formats: Intelligent viewer, Mobile viewer, HTML, iPDF, PDF, and ePUB.
The Editorial Office would like to thank their long-term collaborators for their dedicated and hard work: Dobrila Miletić (reader for the Serbian language), Jasna Višnjić (translator and proofreader for the English language), Karina Avagjan (translator and proofreader for the Russian language), as well as Radovan Mišković (graphic editor of the Journal from the Military Printing House).
The Office is also grateful to all the authors who have put their trust in the Military Technical Courier, as well as to previous editors, involved reviewers and members of the editorial boards whose longtime commitment obligates the current and future members of the Editorial Office to work persistently on the further improvement of the Journal.
