Brief history

Computer Tools in Education journal (“Kompjuternye instrumenty v obrazovanii”) was founded at 1998 and was published on Russian language.
The significant contribution to coming-to-be of the journal was made by two great scientists. One of them - Svjatoslav S. Lavrov - was one of the founders of computer science in USSR. Another - Seymour Papert – create a LOGO language to study interaction between students and computers.
Areas of their activity determine the journal scope.

Journal scope:

Informatics and its educational aspects
- We are interested in a rather wide scope of contributions related to algorithmic mathematics, informatics and their teaching.
- The main direction of the Journal is computer mathematics (including algorithmic mathematics and the development and use of systems of computer or symbolic algebra).
- Also, the Journal will be interested in the articles dealing with the enrichment of training in mathematics, informatics and other subjects through the use of computer tools.
- Another important direction: “Unsolved tasks for young scientists”. This includes articles addressed to university underclassmen and high school seniors that explain key ideas and open problems of the modern computer mathematics.

Our Mission:

To promote the development of computer technologies aimed at productive learning and the support of intellectual activity of trainees, primarily in complex areas of intellectual activity such as mathematics and computer science. The magazine serves as a forum for communication of experts in the field of informatics, university teachers, young scientists and students who are interested in theoretical foundations and teaching of computer science, application of information technologies in various fields.


Teachers and students of computer science faculties of universities, specialists in the field of computer support of education and development of cognitive technologies in teaching.

The journal publishes:

- Results of original research in the field of mathematical modelling, informatics and information technologies;
- Scientific articles on technologies supporting scientific research activities in the learning process.
