At the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, Russia experienced a real flourishing in the field of publishing and literary activity, periodicals, with the sincere interest of an expanding circle of readers in various spheres: artistic life and science, and, above all, history. The Historical Reporter, which originally occupied the niche of a popular, "historical and literary" journal, was founded in 1880. Its last issue was released in 1918.
In 2012, the magazine was recreated through the efforts of A.E. Titkov as a full-fledged and strictly scientific, academic publication. The revived Historical Reporter is a unique scientific project created by the efforts of leading Russian and foreign historians. The magazine specializes in case studies and exclusive documentary publications. The publication actually exists as an independent scientific institution working in the areas of creative breakthrough, coordinating the work of several thematic laboratories within the framework of their publishing programs.
The editorial board of the journal includes leading Russian specialists - academicians, professors, teachers, as well as professors from the universities of USA, Great Britain, and Spain.
The magazine is published four times a year, and each issue is an event expected by experts and history buffs. Every year, in addition to the general historical issue, we publish three thematic issues. Over the seven years of our work, we were able to release a series dedicated to the history of the First World War, as well as many issues dedicated to a spectrum of the most important and vivid themes: the Hellenistic world, the government of the Roman Empire, the Christian East, the genesis of the Mongol and Ottoman empires, and many other lines and plots. It was our magazine that was the first to publish a number of unique - previously unpublished - sources and archival materials.
Special attention is paid to both world history and Russia, whose history and culture have linked and continue to unite the East and the West. In this regard, it is important to note that despite the modern political climate and the desire of certain political forces to demonize and isolate Russia, our journal successfully carries out an educational mission, and also strengthens cooperation with the world scientific community - contributing to an objective, unbiased, academic perception of history. In this sense, each new issue is, in fact, a "remote" international conference, an international publishing project that brings together research by specialists from Russia, Europe, Asia and the New World.
The expanding readership, professional recognition from the world historical community, new research and publishing projects give hope that the revived The Historical Reporter will turn out to be a solid undertaking, which will continue to delight its subscribers and make an ever greater contribution to world science.
