About the Journal

Aims and scope

"Combustion Engines" is a scientific quarterly journal in English language, published by Polish Scientific Society of Combustion Engines. The beginnings of the journal date back to the early 1960s. "Combustion Engines" aspires to play a role of an international forum for the presentation of state of-the-art scientific achievements in the field of combustion engines.
Due to the dynamic development of machine and vehicle powertrains, the "Combustion Engines" scientific journal, while retaining its historical title, currently publishes works related not only to internal combustion engines, but also other powertrains, including hybrid drives, electric drives and fuel cells.

The journal is published as open access.
Publication of an article in the journal "Combustion Engines" is free of charge.
The full texts of the articles of the journal are freely available on the journal’s website.

Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search or link to the full texts of the articles in this journal without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author. This is in accordance with the BOAI (Budapest Open Access Initiative) definition of open access.

The full texts of the articles have been available in Open Access on the journal’s website since 2004 (after 2013 issued as "Combustion Engines" see BazTech); until 2013, issued as "Silniki Spalinowe" - see BazTech).
