VESTNIK has been created by The School of Russian and Asian Studies in an effort to effectively encourage the study of Russia and those states formerly a part of the Soviet Union. VESTNIK is a scholarly journal which publishes the best in undergraduate and graduate research on any subject of relevance to that geographic region.

VESTNIK is designed to showcase exceptional work by students of all levels, subjects, and backgrounds who are researching and writing about Russia or those states formerly a part of the Soviet Union. If you are interested in submitting material for future issues, have students that should be encouraged to publish, or would like to participate on our editorial staff, contact us at jwilson@sras.org. All subjects related to Russia and the FSU will be considered. Submitted papers should include, at the top of the first page, the applicant’s name, major, class standing, a brief description of his/her future plans, and indication that the student is in agreement with all Vestnik policies and procedures. Submissions should not be more than 25 pages (longer submission will be accepted, but may be edited for length), should be in 12-point TNR type with one-inch margins, double spaced, and in electronic format (MS Word).
