The electrophysical and galvanomagnetic properties of undoped and doped zinc oxide films with gallium, aluminum and cobalt, and indium oxide films doped with tin were investigated in wide temperature and magnetic field ranges. It was shown that the decrease of the film cristallinity caused by the method of film synthesis led to a change of the electron transport type from the band electron transport to the hopping electron one. The effective dimensionality crossover initiated by magnetic field in the films with the band type of electron transport was studied. The values of localization radius and density of states at the Fermi level of the films with the hopping mechanism of transport was evaluated.
