The sixth volume of the encyclopedia will be prepared for printing in 2010 and the last seventh one – in 2011.
Publication of encyclopedias was restored in Bashkortostan at the beginning of 90s last century and, as the specialists say, this business faced good prospects. The publishing house jointly with the leading scientists of Bashkortostan prepared the plan of publications of the encyclopedic editions for 2012-2021. The plan includes publication of the multi-volume Bashkir encyclopedia in Bashkir language, the short Bashkir encyclopedia in Russian, English and Bashkir languages both on paper and DVD and the encyclopedias “Bashkirs” and “Mustai Karim”. In a whole the matter will concern 20 titles of the future editions, consisting of 30 books.
