The edition of "Historical Researches" - the Annual of the Abkhazian Organization of All-Georgian Eqvtime Takaishvili Historical Society began in 1998. The Abkhazian Organization of All-Georgian Eqvtime Takaishvili Historical Society was functioning fruitfully for decades in Abkhazia and contributed to the extension and propaganda of historical knowledge. This activity was especially positive in 1970-1980s, when the chairman of organization was well-known Abkhaz historian, Corresponding Member of Georgian Academy of Sciences, Prof. Giorgi Dzidzaria. After the events of the early 1990s the society practically ceased functioning. Only in 1998 the historians, who were forced to leave Abkhazia, reconstituted the Abkhaz Organization of All-Georgian Eqvtime Takaishvili Historical Society and founded its annual journal "Historical Researches". The Editorial Board was formed by the known historians, mainly from the Professors of Sokhumi Branch of Tbilisi Ivane Javakhishvili State University (nowadays Sokhumi State University). There are already published nine issues (1998-2006) of journal. During that time, numerous papers on the important problems of History of Georgia, World History, Archaeology, Ethnology, History of Georgian Law , Political Sciences, etc. were published in the Annual, which is intended both for the specialists and public circles.
