A second publication of the Institute of Art Studies gets indexed in Web of Science

In July, Clarivate Analytics, Philadelphia, USA, announced that conference proceedings Byzantine and Post-Byzantine Art: Crossing Borders, Sofia, 2017. Art Readings, Old Art Module, (eds. E. Moutafov, I. Toth), Sofia 2018, had been covered in Web of Science for coverage in its Conference Proceedings Citation Index, Social Sciences & Humanities edition. The evaluation process of the last year’s Art Readings conference proceedings lasted four months and unlike the 2017 conference proceedings, apart from being selected for coverage was also indexed in Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI). The latter is due to the changes in the format of Art Readings 2018, where apart from footnotes, each article provided bibliographical references listed in alphabetical order. The book was occasioned by the seventieth anniversary of the Institute. Art Readings 2018, Old Art Module contains papers in English, German, French and Bulgarian by leading scholars from UK, Austria, Bulgaria, France, Romania, Greece, Serbia, Italy and Hungary, specialised in church art. All papers have been checked by native speakers.
Highly praising the series of the Institute of Art Studies, Clarivate Analytics editors invited us to deposit earlier Art Readings Old Art Module and New Art Module conference proceedings. This international achievement is a result of the focused efforts of recent years to mount specialised, highly scholarly international events, on the basis of which to prepare peer-reviewed books in the world’s most commonly used languages, meeting the deadlines and adhering to the international standards, improving each new book.
This recently increased international visibility picked the interest in our books and particularly, in the Corpora of Church Murals series of Brepols Publishers, an international academic publisher, founded in 1796, of works in the humanities, enjoying an excellent academic reputation in the area of studies on European cultural heritage and its spheres of influence. Brepols Publishers specialise in bringing out significant contributions in the fields of history, archaeology, linguistics, literature, music, fine arts and architectural history. Highly popular are their fundamental Corpus Christianorum and Corpus Vitrearum series.
