Automatika has a new website


As part of Automatika joining the Taylor & Francis family, we are also changing the website and the manuscript management system. The current Automatika website ( will no longer be used for manuscript handling submitted after January 1, 2017 (this does not apply to papers already submitted and in the review process). Authors who would like to submit a new paper to Automatika should go to the following site:

We hope that you will like our new system and we are looking forward to receiving your papers!

Taylor & Francis and Automatika join strengths


Automatika is to become a part of the Taylor & Francis family.


Dear authors and colleagues of the Automatika journal,

we are happy to announce that our negotiations with the renowned publishing house Taylor & Francis have reached the final phase. We are honored by the confidence that Taylor & Francis has given to Automatika and we are sure that this collaboration will bring higher impact and visibility, more efficient and faster publication process of the Automatika journal. We remain dedicated to the Open Access policy and Automatika will still be an Open Access journal. However, to reach the aforementioned goals, all the papers submitted after May 31, 23:59 CET 2016, if accepted for publishing, will be charged an article processing charge (APC) of £300.

We are looking forward to new changes in the 56 year old Automatika journal, and hope that you share our excitement. We have managed to operate without APCs during the challenging past years, but circumstances have made this model no longer viable. We are confident that Automatika will continue to constantly improve and we are excited about the prospects of our future collaboration.
