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.
