There are projects in the history of scientific disciplines and institutions which mean a certain qualitative stage in the development both of discipline and institution hosting the project. The collective works created in the Ethnographic Institute of the Slovak Academy of Sciences (since 1.1.1994 the Institute of Ethnology SAS) – Ethnographic Atlas of Slovakia, Encyclopaedia of Slovak Folk Culture, Slovakia: European Contexts of Folk Culture – certainly belong to this category. The value of scientific researcher as well as scientific discipline is manifested by finding and realization of the solutions within the particular scientific field.
