History of the conference and electronic essay volume “Interdisciplinarity in Region Research”
The legal predecessor of the Hajdú-Bihar County Archives of the National Archives of Hungary i.e. the Hajdú-Bihar County Archives had organized the event entitled “Interdisciplinarity in Region Research – International Conference of Young Researchers” in 2010 at first. Simultaneously, the Hajdú-Bihar County Archives had established the electronic publication series “Region Research” in which, inter alia, electronic essay volumes “Interdisciplinarity in Region Research” containing the material of the conference was also published; those ones were edited by Bartha Ákos and Szálkai Tamás as well as, in case of the first two publications, Szendrei Ákos. Szálkai Tamás, originator of the conference, became the editor of series. Headquarters of Debrecen Academy Committee of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences hosted the events. Aim of the ab ovo international conference was that the interested young researchers could present the results of their region-related researches within the framework of their scientific lectures. The planned lectures addressed a broad audience of scientists, mainly focusing on different fields of history-, literature-, law-, agricultural- and geography sciences, ethnography, linguistics and sociology as well as economics.
In the organization of the archives, five conferences had taken place and four essay volumes had been prepared, after that the Faculty of Economics and Business of the University of Debrecen also joined in the organization. According to the altered demands, the expression “young researchers” was removed from the notice in 2014, as a result of which the number of lecturers increased significantly. This fact and the increase in quantity of organizational-editorial works made it necessary to reorganize the event and the making of publications and to involve other co-workers which resulted in the transfer of publishing tasks at the same time. On 21 February 2017, of the Hajdú-Bihar County Archives of the National Archives of Hungary and the University of Debrecen concluded an agreement in which they mutually stated the demand for further organization of the events.
The series “Region Research” of the Archives continues to be edited by the institution. The conference entitled “Interdisciplinarity in Region Research” will be henceforth organized by University of Debrecen, Faculty of Economics and Business, in partnership with the Archives. Materials of the conference will be published by the newly-established journal “Region Research Review” of the Faculty of Economics and Business.
