Studia mythologica Slavica

Studia mythologica Slavica is international scientific journal on mythology, belief culture and tradition of Slavic and also other nations and people. It is published by the Institute of Slovenian Ethnology at the Scientific Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts in Ljubljana, and by the Dipartimento di Lingue e Letterature Straniere, Università degli Studi di Udine (first issue was published in 1998 by Università degli Studi di Pisa). The journal is dedicated to interdisciplinary studies, and one of the main aims of this journal is to present comparative research that defines and determines (i.e. establishes) Slavic culture in the context of the wider European and non-European world (cultures). The journal intends to throw light on the belief systems and religions of older Slavic, Eurasian, and other civilisations. Moreover, it encourages the research of contemporary phenomena in the field of spiritual, social and material culture, and their transformation. The character of the publication is both international and interdisciplinary, covering the themes from the field of ethnology, history, archaeology, linguistics, religious studies, history of literature and philosophy. It also brings new interpretations of historical sources and presents new discoveries, material, and field research.

The journal was first published in 1998 - it was founded by Nikolai Mikhailov and Monika Kropej - and since then it has been published once a year in a multi-language edition, in print and on the internet (Archives). Between the years 2011 (No. 14) and 2014 (No. 17) one of the two Editors-in-Chief was Andrej Pleterski.

The articles are published in English, Italian, German, Russian and Slovene languages. All articles have long summaries and an abstract in English language. All articles are examined by one of the editors upon receipt, after which they are sent to two anonymous reviewers. Information for authors and Guidelines are available here.
