Классикализация научного наследия С.Б. Веселовского
The author uses the three criteria of academic classics proposed by I.M. Savelyeva and A.V. Poletaev and analyzes the factors, which made it possible to define the works by a historian S.B. Veselovskiy (1876–1952) as classical ones. The scientometric database Google Scholar (Google Academy) reveals the dynamics and nature of the researchers'
enquiries for the works by S.B. Veselovskiy. The reasons for the formation of his works as classical are considered: internal (academic discourse of the researcher) and external (circumstances of publication of his works since the 1960s; actualization of works in Soviet and post-Soviet historiography). Special attention is paid to the perception of academic heritage and personality of S.B. Veselovskiy in the memory of historians of the Soviet era.
