Armenian Soviet Encyclopedia

The Armenian Encyclopedia (Armenian: Հայկական Հանրագիտարան; AE) publishing house was established in 1967 as a department of the Institute of History of the Armenian Academy of Sciences under the presidency of Viktor Hambardzumyan (1908–1996), co-edited by Abel Simonyan (1922–1994) and Makich Arzumanyan (1919–1988). In 1988–1999 the editor-in-chief was Konstantin Khudaverdyan (1929–1999) and since 1999 Hovhannes Aivazyan. It produced the Soviet Armenian Encyclopedia (also rendered Armenian Soviet Encyclopedia; Armenian: Հայկական Սովետական Հանրագիտարան, Haykakan sovetakan hanragitaran, Russian: Армя́нская сове́тская энциклопе́дия, Armyanskaya sovetskaya entsiklopediya АСЭ) from 1974–1986.

The AE publishing house also edited a children's encyclopedia, Who is it? What is it? (Armenian: Ո՞վ է, Ին՞չ է), in 4 volumes (1984–87), the Russian-Armenian Polytechnical Dictionary (1988) and a "Traveler's Encyclopedia" (1990). Since Armenian independence (1991) publications include titles on topics of such current-day issues such as the Nagorno-Karabakh War, the Armenian Question and the Armenian diaspora.
