Our journal was founded in 1992 as a monthly educational publication “Vestnik Leib-gvardii”, which was published in 1992−1993 and in 1996−1997. After that there was a break and the publication was resumed in 2003 as a collection of scientific papers “History and Historians in the Context of the Time”, and later as eponymous journal. With the present name, the publication is still being released today.
The mission of journal is to present the results of current research on the history and culture of the Caucasus. The priority areas for us are the historical patterns and civilizational features of the Caucasus as a multinational area with a controversial history, unique historical and cultural heritage, as well as the traditions and customs of the Caucasian peoples, their experience of living together for the past two millennia.
The journal’s objective is to familiarize the specialists and all interested readers with the latest developments in historical and other human sciences, the development of inter-institutional and international scientific cooperation in the framework of the scientific problems related to the history of the Caucasus.
