French on OpenEdition Journals


Cahiers du Monde russe is a quarterly, interdisciplinary journal founded in 1959 and edited by the Centre d’études des mondes russe, caucasien et est-européen (CERCEC) and the Centre d’études turques, ottomanes, balkaniques et centrasiatiques. It is published by the École des hautes études en sciences sociales (EHESS), Paris.

History of the Russian and Soviet Worlds

Coverage in Cahiers du Monde russe includes the political, social, economic, and cultural (more particularly literary) history of the Russian Empire from its origins to 1917, the Soviet Union, and the latter’s successor states. In response to the historiographical renewal that took place in the field of Soviet studies due in great part to the opening of state archives, the journal favors the publication of articles with the most innovative approaches.

The journal also devotes its fourth issue each year and a large part of each volume to an evaluation of international scholarship in the book review section (as soon as they are approved by the editorial office, review articles are posted for free online access at

National and Cultural Diversity

The journal stands out due to the importance given to the study of the Russian Empire as well as the national, religious, and cultural components of the peripheries of both the Empire and the Soviet Union. A large number of articles therefore deal with specific areas of the former Soviet Union such as the Caucasus, Central Asia, Tatarstan, and the Crimea.

A Multilingual Journal

The journal has the benefit of a very active network of correspondents both in France and abroad. Its articles and book reviews are in French, Russian, and English, and occasionally in German.
