In two years, he became a member of the Historical-Philological Society founded in Kharkiv University. There, he gave lectures, reported on the results of his studies and trips around Katerynoslav region (now Dnipropetrovsk region), published scholarly articles on the history of the Zaporozhian Cossacks, their life and traditions.

Dmytro Yavornytskyi is also known as a writer and poet. He was a person of wide interests, ambitious and inexhaustive worker in the field on the national culture. In addition to Ukrainian and Russian, he spoke German, French and Greek. In 1924, he was elected a Corresponding Member and in 1929 — a full member (academician) of the Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.
