The Journal was founded in October 1992 at the Research Institute for Regionology, Mordovia State University (Saransk, Russia). The originator of the Journal and its permanent Editor-in-chief (until 24 December 2010) was a Russian philosopher and sociologist, public and political figure, organizer of science and education, Doctor of Philosophical Sciences, Professor Alexander Ivanovich Sukharev (1931—2010). At the turn of 1980—90s, he created an integrated school of science called ‘Regionology’, connected with systematic study and discussion of the consistent patterns of harmonious and interrelated development of the regions in a single federative state. The Regionologiya (Regionology) Journal became a platform for promotion and actualization of this school of science.
