The department history

The editorial-publishing department was founded at 1992. The editor of the publishing house “Nauka” Victoria Timofeevna Bochever was invited to head the department. The staff was composed of editors I.I.Timofeeva, E.A.Goldich, a typist V.A.Levaya, painters K.B.Serebrovskaya, E.N.Pashina, a photographer V.E.Balakhnov. In 1993 the typist M.P.Onyanova was enrolled to the department along with the experienced editor I.N.Ionina, who became the head of the department in 1996. In 1997-2001 the department staff was reduced to three persons (I.N.Ionina, M.P.Onyanova, K.B.Serebrovskaya). Some other editors were invited to collaborate with the department on contract basis, as the painter A.Yu.Kharitonova, who has worked at the department on contract basis from 1995 to nowadays. Nevertheless, the department has continued to work very productively, having issued for 10 years (1992-2002) over 1,5 thousand publication lists and saved the periodicity of nearly all the serials of MAE.
