The study considers theoretical and practical aspects of journal (almanac) context methodology. The study of the print media raises the issue of integrity and indivisibility between the history of journalism and the history of literature. The article proposes the fundamental principles of journal (almanac) context theory based on the context division into external and internal, textual and non-textual ones, revealing the media’s editorial policy. The article gives examples of the practical implementation of the proposed theory for a certain press organ study. The conclusion reached is that there is a need for a complex journal or almanac-focused study (specifically historical and cross-cultural).

  • Keywords: history of journalism, history of literature, methodology, journal, almanac, journal context, area of focus, journal policy.
