Russian Politics (RUPO) is an international, peer-reviewed journal examining the scholarship of intersections between on the one hand, Russian studies, and on the other hand Politics, Law, Economics and Russian history. This journal will feature a diverse range of perspectives through its editorial board in order to encourage a transnational and global study of Russian Politics. This approach involves the study of Russian politics as a broad system of human experience, social changes, statecraft and global political tendencies, which enhances the authentic value of the journal among those already existing. The professional composition of the editorial board which is represented by editors insistently assigned for their expertise in this field of science and politics will guarantee qualitatively good contributions to each volume of RUPO.
The journal’s focus on a broad definition of Russian politics copes with the demand of global scholarship which finds itself confronted with different social, cultural and legal meanings of politics and statecraft in and of the Russian Federation. This approach allows for contributions concerned with Russian politics in different times and places, inside and outside the national borders of the Russian Federation, which clearly relates to the political situation the country is situated in after the decline of the Soviet Union.
Experiment, an annual journal devoted to Russian culture, focuses on the movements of the early twentieth century. These include both traditional and non-traditional avenues of academic enquiry, such as studio painting and graffiti, sculpture and ballroom dancing, architecture and commercial advertising. It is hoped that broader examination of such disciplines within critical discourse will provide a stronger and more precise definition of Russia's cultural accomplishment. Supervised by an editorial board of international stature, Experiment emphasizes an interdisciplinary approach, drawing upon archival sources while promoting and documenting the history of the Russian arts. The journal recognizes the achievements both of Imperial and Soviet Russia and of the diaspora.
Prepared by a guest editor or editors, each volume of Experiment consists of essays treating a particular theme or idea. Experiment is published under the auspices of the Institute of Modern Russian Culture at the University of Southern California.

East Central Europe is a peer-reviewed journal of social sciences and humanities with a focus on the region between the Baltic and the Adriatic, published in cooperation with the Central European University. The journal seeks to maintain the heuristic value of regional frameworks of interpretation as models of historical explanation, transcending the nation-state at sub-national or trans-national level, and to link them to global academic debates. East Central Europe has an interdisciplinary orientation, combining area studies with history and social sciences, most importantly political science, sociology, anthropology, and cultural studies. It aims to stimulate the dialogue and exchange between scholarship produced in and on East-Central Europe and other area study traditions, in a global context. East Central Europe is made in close cooperation with Pasts, Inc. in Central European University (www.ceu.hu/pasts).

Russian History’s mission is the publication of original articles on the history of Russia through the centuries, in the assumption that all past experiences are inter-related. Russian History seeks to discover, analyze, and understand the most interesting experiences and relationships and elucidate their causes and consequences. Contributors to the journal take their stand from different perspectives: intellectual, economic and military history, domestic, social and class relations, relations with non-Russian peoples, nutrition and health, all possible events that had an influence on Russia. Russian History is the international platform for the presentation of such findings. It counts among its contributors eminent scholars like Elise Wirtschafter, Jeffrey Brooks, Michael Khodarkovsky, Russell Martin and Sheila Fitzpatrick.
