A serial published irregularly in Kyiv in 1919–31 (27 volumes in all) by the All-Ukrainian Academy of Sciences (VUAN). The editors in chief were Ahatanhel Krymsky and Mykhailo Hrushevsky. It contained articles and materials on the history of Ukraine up to 1917 and the history of Ukrainian culture, folklore, and ethnography, as well as on art, linguistics, literature studies, and Slavic studies. It also contained official notices and minutes of the meetings of the historical-philological division, reports on the work of the historical section, bibliographic surveys, and book reviews. Separate volumes were devoted to the literary or scholarly contributions of Taras Shevchenko, Volodymyr Antonovych, Mykola Sumtsov, Mykola Biliashivsky, Dmytro Bahalii, and Krymsky. Vols 6, 11, 17, 20, and 24 were published as Pratsi Istorychnoï sektsiï VUAN. With the purge of the academy in 1931, the Zapysky were discontinued.
