Известия Таврической Ученой Архивной Комиссии - Proceedings of the Taurida Learned Archival Commission
The Tauric Learned Archival Commission (Tavricheskaya Uchёnaya Arkhivnaya Komissiya, TUAK) was established as an organization of local lore students being one of 39 Commissions of the type acting within the territory of the Russian Empire. ITUAK was created in Simferopol in 1887 and united well-known scholars and ancient-Crimea-lovers, that is to say, most part of learned society in the government (district). Although the governor necessarily was a member of such a commission, the commission was supervised by the Academy of Sciences in cooperation with local authorities. One of the main forms of learned archival commissions’ activities was open meetings, where papers and reports were presented by both the commission members and guests, and organizational routine was sorted out. Making protocols and preparing reports was necessary. Money funds were a combination of membership fees, grants from the government, and private donations, as well as from selling the commission’s own publications: Journals, Proceedings, etc. 
The Tauric Learned Archival Commission regularly published its Proceedings. 57 volumes of this issue including more than 400 scholarly articles and publications of historical documents and archaeological finds came out of print from 1887 to 1920. Izvestiya Tavricheskoy Uchёnoy Arkhivnoy Komissii (ITUAK) still remains to be invaluable data source for everyone who is studying Crimea.
