About magazine

“The Ethnology Notebooks” is bimonthly periodical issued by National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine and the Ethnology Institute of NAS of Ukraine. It had been founded in January 1995 at Lviv as published voice of a widely-known in Ukraine centre of studies in ethnology, folklore, art history and museology.

The appearance of specialized academic periodical had been entailed by intensive development of ethnographic knowledge under conditions of regained Ukrainian statehood, in the circumstances of sophisticated transformations in the whole sociocultural space and re-establishing of institutional ties with other ethnological centres in Ukraine and abroad.

The appearance of a new periodical had been quite important fact of public life as in then-a-day academic as well as university communities there was no intellectual platform for probing of scientific achievements and discussions concerning key problems of ethnos and nation, sphere of customs, dynamic changes in traditional ritualism, people’s knowledge and crafts, spiritual, material and aesthetical culture, world schools of ethnology, cultural anthropology, folklore studies, ethnical psychology, art history, museology, history and philosophy of culture etc.

In relatively short term “The Ethnology Notebooks” had exceeded its basal level of institutional medium of the Ethnology Institute of NAS of Ukraine and become all-national bank of data and a place for discussions in various aspects of Ukrainian ethnical traditionalism as well as in professional analytics concerned with sociocultural dynamics in the development of Ukrainian nation.

Now with “The Ethnology Notebooks” co-operate eminent scholars working in Ukraine and abroad, representatives of a number of research (academic and university) centres, scientists of middle and younger generations, incl. post-graduates and aspirants. The Editorial Board is looking forward for co-operation with everybody interested in publication of own elaborations in contemporary Humanities.

“The Ethnology Notebooks” is included in the List of scientific professional editions of Ukraine, in which the results of dissertations for the scientific degrees of the doctor and the candidate of sciences can be published.
Approved by orders of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine.
