Khachatur Abovian Armenian State Pedagogical University offers the scientific community the 3 rd issue of 2022 of the Journal WISDOM dedicated to the 100th anniversary of our University.

Unfortunately, the circumstances that accompanied the compilation of the papers and further editing were more than drastic since, on September 13 and 14, the Azerbaijanian Armed Forces came up with new aggression against the sovereign territory of the Republic of Armenia along the whole eastern frontiers of our country. All again, the military and civil infrastructures were targeted, causing material devastation and human losses. The Azerbaijanian aggression scenario showed even more austerities and violence against Armenia‟s military and civil population, indecently and dishonourably dealing with even females.

The Editorial Board members of WISDOM offer their deepest condolences to the families and relatives of the victims. Our earnest and most assertive plea is to condemn the aggressive and antihuman policy adopted by the Azerbaijanian authorities under Turkey‟s evident and immediate support.

Nevertheless, despite the complexity of the current geopolitical landscape and the existential challenges that Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh are facing at present, the Armenian State Pedagogical University and the Editorial Board of WISDOM remain committed to their aim – to provide the respective platform for disseminating valuable scientific-philosophical ideas and explorations, inspiring discussions and debates over such ideas, as well as introducing promising young researchers and their findings to the international scholarly-philosophical community.

In 2022, the webpage of WISDOM was moved from “Bluehost” to “PKP Publishing Service” hosting, OJS paid platform, in order to secure a more coordinated and uninterrupted online presence.

Since its establishment, the Journal has been improving its rating and quality indicators:

-  The Scopus SJR monitoring in 2019-2021 raised the Journal from rating position Q4 to Q2. In 2021, the position increased up to Q1.
-The Scopus CiteScore in 2021 was 0,5, while in 2022, it has already become 0,6 which we hope might have increased by the end of the year – hopefully, as feedback to our upcoming September and December issues, as well as the special issue on Education Philosophy.
- Correspondingly, the Journal Citation Indicator - 0,51 in 2020 became 0,82 in 2021.
-Eventually, within the Art and Humanity field of the Scopus System, WISDOM is number 268 among the officially registered 718 scientific periodicals and 62 among the philosophy journals.

The present issue offers to its readers valuable papers on the respective philosophical insights in social sciences, political sciences, education, religion, arts and culture, as well as in economics and law and political philosophy, education philosophy, and religion philosophy.

We are happy to observe the continuous broadening of the geography of our authors: this time, we are delighted to welcome scholars from Vietnam, India, and Kazakhstan.

The Journal has gained the membership of Publons peer-review and publishing platform within Web of Science. WISDOM keeps advancing its rating on famed platforms Scopus and Web of Science – according to a variety of international assessment standards.

We are proud of the fact that the scientific community worldwide shows more and more interest in the materials published in WISDOM, providing positive feedback. Correspondingly, the increasing number of citations, references, and mentions of the publications in WISDOM assume even more responsibility and inspire more positive motivation among our authors.
