This is the first volume intended to ‘give the floor’ to the young scientsts and PhD students who presented their papers at the Annual Conference “Young Researchers”, organized under the auspices of the Doctoral Centre “St. Kliment Ohridski” (February 2018). It comprises texts originally written in English by foreign as well as by Bulgarian participants. The topical focus is on pedagogical sciences, but other areas as data management, GIS etc. are also included. It is symbolic that “Education” becomes the pivot for the ”international” edition: education proved to be the most fit to cross borders just as the faculties of pedagogy gave a good example of academic internationalization.
The main goal of this series is to become an incentive for early career researchers at the Sofia University to communicate findings within the limits of their professional interest with broader audience, to prepare written text, following certain academic standards.
