The Turkish Academy of Sciences (Türkiye Bilimler Akademisi) was founded in 1993 mainly for science research, so the main research centres for the humanities are the Turkish Historic Society (Türk Tarih Kurumu) and the Turkish Linguistics Society (Türk Dil Kurumu). Founded under the patronage of Atatürk in 1930, the aim of the Turkish Historical Society is to study the history of Turkey and the Turks and to publish the results of these studies. The Society organizes international conferences, launches and supports research projects, maintains special library and publishes book serials. This year 62 Turkish and foreign researchers, among them two Hungarian researchers, Géza Dávid (professor of the ELTE University, Budapest) and Pál Fodor, Acting Director General of the Research Centre for Humanities, Hungarian Academy of Sciences, were elected Honourable Members of the Society. The inauguration ceremony was held in Istambul, October 30, 2012, in the former palace of the Sultans. The honourable members got a true copy of the ornamented caftan of Sultan Selim I (1512–1520) and presented lectures on their researches concerning Turkish history.
