The research team is charged with the task of creating a current historical bibliography. Between 1956 and 1984 current historical bibliographies were published in Századok (Centuries), the professional journal of the Hungarian Historical Society, founded in 1867 (the year in which the periodical was launched). These bibliographies contained information regarding the works of secondary historical literature that had been published in the previous year or half-year, organized thematically and chronologically. Between 1985 and 1993 the bibliography was published in separate volumes, but after 1993 the collection and publication was discontinued. The research team consists of only a few members who are preparing the historical bibliography of the period after 1994, which they intend to publish (organized by year) on the institute’s website.
