These issues in their various aspects (language, literature, history, art, etc.) are closely related to the cultural development of the other Slavic countries, of the neighbouring Balkan countries, as well as of the spiritual and cultural phenomena and processes throughout Europe. The scope of the publications, presented in the journal is too broad and from various fields of the humanities: Palaeoslavistics, Cyrillo-Methodian Studies, Studies about Culture and History of Slavic people and of people from the Balkan during the Middle Ages, Byzantology, Theology, Art Studies and others.

This is why the agenda of the journal is relevant not only to Bulgarian but also to medieval studies abroad. Join the conversation about this journal

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
