On 7-17 October 2009 scientific study course took place at the Social Sciences Information Institute of Russian Academy of Sciences in the city of Moscow, Russian Federation. During this course I familiarized myself with the electronic and catalogue resources, bibliographic databases of an extensive library of aforementioned institute, received relevant consultations from the staff, and, most importantly, had the chance to use the scientific resources of the library in order to accumulate information for my Master’s degree thesis titled “Қазақстан тарихының неміс тарихнамасы (ХІХ ғ. екінші жартысы – КСРО-ның ыдырауына дейін)”

Throughout the entire span of the scientific course, I received assistance from of the head of international affairs department V. I. Gerasimov and deputy director of the Institute L. V. Skvortsov. I analyzed such works like “Relevant issues in history and historiography of Central Asia”, Dushanbe, 1990; Georg Renner «Abseits der grossen Minarette Reisen in das Land zwischen Amu und Sydarja» Leipzig, 1982.; V.I. Salov “Germanic historiography of the October Revolution”, Moscow 1960.; “Historism and modern bourgeois historiography”, Moscow 1977; Eschment B. “Hat Kasachstan ein «Russisches Problem?” Koeln, 1988.; Inoyatov “Retort to the falsifications of Soviet Asia and Kazakhstan history”, Tashkent 1962; Inoyatov Kh. “Against the falcification of history of Soviet state triumph in Central Asia and Kazakhstan”, Tashkent 1976 and so forth.

Besides the Social Sciences Information Institute, I also visited V.I. Lenin Russian State Library, and was granted access to its electronic, rarity and dissertation funds.

Crowning this extensive research effort is an entire array of scientific resources acquired at the Russian libraries and relevant to my thesis subject. These resources are now being actively employed in developing the research project which is going to ultimately manifest itself in form of a Master’s degree thesis.




For the purpose of working on Master’s thesis and receiving consultation concerning my research, I had passed a 10-day study course at F. M. Dostoyevsky Omsk State University.

 Upon arrival to Omsk we were greeted by the representatives of the international affairs department headed by V. V. Issers. Throughout our stay in this wonderful city, Vitaly Issers and Natalia Strunina had been giving us ample opportunity to study at a rich scientific library and seek consultation from the specialists in the field of organic chemistry. Especially memorable was our meeting with Alexander Fisyuk, Doctor of Chemical Sciences, professor at the organic chemistry department. His views and opinions in the field of synthesis of new organic compounds have inspired me greatly. Thanks to his valuable advice, I can now revise and significantly expand my Master’s thesis.

 We were thrilled to study at the electronic library of the organic chemistry department of F. M. Dostoyevsky OSU. In this regard, of great help to me was docent Vladimir Poendaev. He is truly a valued specialist in organic chemistry. With his assistance I was granted access not only to the Russian-language scientific materials, but also foreign research works.

 Upon completion of the study course we were awarded with refresher training certificates — fruits of our joint efforts.

On behalf of all Master’s students who had undergone training at F. Dostoevsky OSU, I would like to express my utmost gratitude to the entire teaching staff of this university and wish them good health and new breakthroughs in research!

On 7-17 October 2009 I participated in the scientific training course at the Social Sciences Information Institute of Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russian Federation.

We were welcomed by Vladimir Ivanovich Gerasimov, Candidate of Historical Sciences. He organized the meeting with the director of History Department, Alif Aliev.

We were mainly studying at the library of the Social Sciences Information Institute. This library provided me with massive amounts of information relevant to my thesis subject, including a book by P. Rumyantsev “Kyrgiz nation in past and present”, published in 1925.

Upon completion of the course, relevant certificates were awarded to us by deputy head of the institute, head of the cultural science department, V. V. Skvortsov (Doctor of Philosophic Sciences).


We are very happy about the trip and are ecstatic about having received such valuable experience from the Russian specialists, and having found so much information for our theses.
