In his opinion, establishing of the archives can not only allow preserving the scientific achievements of the Russian science, but also become an important help for conducting new scientific research:

“As a historian, I am personally familiar with the difficulty of finding the necessary information for research. Scientists can spend quite a long time trying to find it in the printed archives, which can be spent on research on their projects. I would also like to emphasize the relevance of creating archives for young people: the availability of the necessary information online will allow you to study sources anywhere in the world, which will have a beneficial effect on educational and scientific processes”.
