The section contains some interviews to authors of selected web-sites concerning History and Human Studies in general.

There are also some interviews to university teachers and researchers and independent scholars and researchers. The interview criteria are based on the need of uniformity of exposition of all authors’ works, so to make easier for any reader the main passages on which the building of a history-dealing web-site is based. 1.
