The scientific journal "Reliability and Quality of Complex Systems" has been established in order to represent the results of scientific research and development, practical results in the field of reliability and quality of complex systems increase.
The thematic orientation of the journal is presented by a wide range of the scientific perspective covering researches in the field of the theory of reliability, optimization of reliability, quantitative characteristics and methods of the assessment of reliability, reliability of ergatic systems, technology and equipment for electronic and radio engineering production, the production technology of printed-circuit boards, printed circuit wiring, design and construction of radio-electronic equipment, technology and equipment for the production of automatic equipment and computer facilities means, reliability of communication networks and information security, reliability and durability of cars, the theory of reliability and durability of devices, reliability, non-failure operation, durability, maintainability, technology and equipment for test and quality control of devices, nodes of blocks, elements, details of nondestructive control devices of products and materials, research and development in the field of efficiency, reliability and fighting use of weapons and military equipment, quality control systems, methods of quality control, quality control at production life cycle stages, quality control of technological processes, certification of production and quality ensuring systems. 
The priority task of the journal is the development of effective international cooperation in the field of the theory of reliability and quality management, involvement of the world’s leading scientists to the cooperation within the journal’s framework, scientific initiation of young researchers. The achievement of the specified task is promoted by the possible publication of articles in English, and also the publication priority of works with authors’ international participation, including young scientists.
