The creation of the journal Teploenergetika was initiated by Academician Vladimir A. Kirillin. The first issue of the journal was published in January of 1954, and in 1974, the publication of its full English version was launched as Thermal Engineering.

The founders of the journal are
the Russian Academy of Sciences and
the Technical Society of Power and Electrical Engineers.

Russian version of the journal is published and translated into English by the International Academic Publishing Company MAIK Nauka/Interperiodica ( and the publisher of the English version is Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.

The purpose of the journal is to inform its readers about the current state of thermal science and engineering applications in Russia and countries near and far abroad, about experience in operating thermal plants and the state of research and development work in the CIS, about possible solutions of major scientific and technological problems in the field of thermal engineering. The journal aims at an audience of engineering staff of power plants and power engineering industry, construction, assembly installation, and design organizations, researchers, educators, and undergraduate students in the field of relevant specializations.

The journal is included in bibliographic abstract and citation databases Scopus and RISC.

Among the best Russian journals, Thermal Engineering has been selected for participation in a joint project of RISC AND THOMAS REUTERS aimed at promoting journals to the citation index WEB OF SCIENCE.

The journal is included in the list of periodical publications recommended by the Higher Attestation Commission for publication of main results of master's and doctoral theses.
The Journal has won the competition for the state support of programs for the development of Russian scientific journals.
