In the specialized council on religious studies
According to the December (1996) Resolution of the Higher Attestation Commission of Ukraine, the requirements for publications of searchers of the scientific degree of the candidate of sciences are increasing. Now the candidate's thesis is accepted for protection only if there are three articles published in specialized journals. For our Council, such publications will be articles published in religious scholarly periodicals, central and authoritative journals, specialized scientific collections, collections of materials of religious scholarly conferences held under the auspices of UAR. Monographs are counted when they are published on the decision of the Academic Councils of scientific institutions or universities and with reviews of two famous scholars of religious studies, and brochures - in the presence of two mentioned reviews.
