The goal and scope of the journal activity

The goal of the journal is to highlight the current theoretical and practical aspects of the publishing and printing industry and related industries: information systems and technologies, automation, industrial engineering, applied mechanics, publishing and printing, social communications (journalism, publishing and editing, advertising and PR, information, library and archival studies).


Publication of scientific research papers concerning the advanced trends of fundamental sciences, applied developments, implementation of innovative projects. The exchange of scientific ideas, research methodology and practical achievements.

The journal of scientific papers "Printing and Publishing" publishes the finished, original researches of Ukrainian and foreign scientists that have not been published earlier, as well as the proceedings of scientific conferences.

The pages of the journal of scientific papers "Printing and Publishing" contain the information on special scientific and technical conferences, symposiums, exhibitions, summaries, reviews and opinions on new study guides, textbooks and monographs, regulations, abstracts of scientific papers, as well as the information on important scientific events.
