This issue initiates a series of almanacs with Evolution as its general title; these
almanacs are aimed at the consolidation of those researchers who study all the possi-
ble types of evolutionary processes. The interdisciplinary studies have demonstrated
their effectiveness, whereas the study of evolution is one of the most fruitful areas of
interdisciplinary knowledge where representatives of natural, mathematical, and so-
cial sciences, as well as the humanities can find a common field for their research.
The Almanac is designed to present to its readers the widest possible spectrum
of subjects and problems: from the approaches of the universal evolutionism to
the analysis of particular evolutionary regularities in the development of biological,
abiotic, and social systems, culture, cognition, language, etc.
