The journal for scenic production studies called Disk was published from 2002 to 2012. Forty-two issues of the journal were prepared by the Research Institute for Dramatic and Scenic Art of the Theatre Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts. The quarterly, whose content was connected with activities of the above-mentioned institute, contributed to studies of dramatic and scenic art based on its reflection in a broader context.
