The present study emphasizes some considerations about the essential aspects of the activity of the Social Romanian Institute from Bessarabia (1934-1940) the regional subsidiary of the Social Romanian Institute of Bucharest (1921-1984). According to the epoch documents, the Institute is considered as “the first institution of scientific research” from the land, which contributed to the cultural and scientific development of Romanian Bessarabia (1918-1940). The monographic research of Bessarabia villages represents the most convincing argument of scientific character of the institution.
