Laboratorium: Russian Review of Social Research invites submission of article manuscripts for publication.
Laboratorium is a bilingual (English and Russian) print and online journal; submissions undergo rigorous double-blind peer review.
The journal's focus is on historical, comparative, cultural, and ethnographic sociology, but we are open to other approaches and to contributions from neighboring disciplines, including anthropology, social geography, sociolinguistics, and history. The main requirement for submitted texts-original empirical research grounded in relevant literature debates.
While most of the articles in the journal's past ten issues have been on Russia and countries in the post-Soviet space, we seek to expand our geographic scope, as long as findings in submitted manuscripts have relevance beyond their specific cases. Notable articles from the past year include: "Internationalization of Russian Economic Science," "Notions of Love in Polyamory," "The Shopping Mall as Public Space," and "Everyday Practices of Neighborhood Police Officers." Laboratorium has also published special issues on "Former USSR and Latin America: Studies in Post-Authoritarian Transformations," "Gender Relations in the Private Sphere: Post-Soviet Transformations of Family and Intimacy," and "Rethinking the South Caucasus."
