The Samarkand School of Turkic Studies was restored in 2022 on the initiative of the rector of Samarkand State University, scientist of the Republic of Uzbekistan, member of the Senate of the Oliy Majlis Rustam Halmuradov.

      The contribution to science and research of scientists from the Scientific Research Institute of Turkology at SamSU is recognized in the centers of Turkic studies around the world.

     Recently, a well-known Turkic scholar, professor of the Department of Uzbek Linguistics at Sam State University, Zhuliboy Eltazarov, received an offer to head the editorial board of the journal “Türkiyat Mecmuası” (“Journal of Turkic Studies”), published since 1925.

     Zhuliboy Eltazarov is the author of 20 books, textbooks and monographs and more than 200 articles in the field of Turkology, Uzbek linguistics, and Turkic studies. In subsequent years, he published more than 20 articles in different languages in Turkish and international scientific publications on current problems of Turkology. For these merits, the scientist from Samarkand was awarded membership in the editorial board of “Türkiyat Mecmuası”.

     “Being a member of the editorial board of the journal “Türkiyat Mecmuası” of the Institute of Turkic Studies at Istanbul University, founded on the initiative of the Great Ataturk, is a high assessment given to Turkic studies in our country and Samarkand State University and I will make every effort,” Zhuliboy wrote in a response letter Eltazarov.

     We remind you that Professor Zheliboy Eltazarov has been a corresponding member of Türk Dil Kurumu (“Turkish Language Academy”) since 2020, and in 2023 the scientist was awarded the international medal of Chingiz Aitmatov TurkSOY.
