Chronicle of events

Twenty years ago: the chronicle of one journal’s creation As one of the direct creators of “Scientific and Technical Proceedings” the author (Alexander Ivanov) analyzes preconditions and first periods of the new science journal establishment in 1990s. He also proves validity and necessity of such a kind of the mass-media creation demanded by science. Along with the need of scientific publications, the author emphasizes features of a paradigm shift not only in publishing all over the country, but university publishing in particular. It results from the speed of science evolution in the information age.
