«Ученые записки» ученого сословия (первая половина XIX века)

Галиуллина Р. Х., Ильина К. А.

In this article history of university periodicals is approached as a  history of practices of state administration, self-regulation of university corporation, professional self-organization,  and normalization of different aspects of the university life. Research  for this article has been carried out in the archives of Moscow  University and Kazan University, and in the manuscript divisions of  these universities’ libraries, as well as in the Archive of the Ministry  of Public Education. Documents preserved in these collections reveal  intentions of the publishers and circumstances surrounding the  appearance of various periodicals in the first half of the nineteenth century. Another group of historical sources analyzed in this article  consists of publications in university periodicals themselves. The  authors show how the state policies regulating the market of the university press, on the one hand, and initiatives of university professors, on the other, influenced the configuration of the corporation of the university faculty, its internal hierarchies and accepted criteria of academic excellence. The article seeks to answer the question how politics and content of university journalism stimulated academic competition and created reputations.
