The materials are published in Armenian, Russian and English. The published articles have summaries in these three languages. Brief information about the authors is given in three languages. The periodical which covers social sciences has a serious scientific reputation among similar bulletins, as, before going to press, it is being reviewed, edited, compared with different sources and thoroughly proofread. Accordingly, the publications which do not correspond to the scientific standards of the bulletin, find no place in the periodical.
