"The Literature" relies on interdisciplinarity and understands literature in the broad context of the transitions between texts, problematization of borders and intertextuality. The texts in the journal see literature in a broad cultural context. They focus on different approaches in interpretive capacities of both literature and other fields of culture. The edition stands for a balance between translated and Bulgarian author's texts, aiming to see the points of view in different traditions and cultures, and also to situate Bulgarian literature among them. That is why it deliberately presents not only popular names, but also new ones - young promising scholars and talented students from the three university educational levels. The section "Debuts" was created for them.

The journal Съпоставително езикознание/ Сопоставительное языкознание/ Contrastive Linguistics, published by St. Kliment Ohridski University of Sofia, first appeared under the title Bulletin for the Contrastive Study of Bulgarian and Other Languages. It was probably the world’s first journal devoted entirely to contrastive linguistics and is now in its 4th decade.

Over the past thirty years Contrastive Linguistics featured works by outstanding scholars from Bulgaria and a number of other countries. To this day many foreign colleagues insist that their article or review be published in this journal and no other. It was in Contrastive Linguistics that many young PhD students, budding lecturers and researchers saw their first scholarly articles published.

The journal is interdisciplinary and features topical issues in line with the interests of young scholars. Each issue features several texts by established scholars that accompany those of their less experienced colleagues and are in line with the topic chosen. This allows young scholars the opportunity to publish alongside distinguished professionals.

Colloquia Comparativa Litterarum is an annual online scholarly journal of Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski”, with free access and double-blind peer review selection before publication, which features articles in Comparative Literature and Balkan Studies. The range of this thematic fusion allows for the presentation of both regional and global literary trends. The thematic focus concerns literary ideas and practices in Europe, including the Balkans, mainly from the 18th century to the present. The journal welcomes also interdisciplinary research on comparative cultural studies, cultural identities, and world literature. Scientific articles and reviews of scholarly books on comparative literature are accepted in one of the following three languages: Bulgarian, English, and French.
