Etnograficheskoe Obozrenie [Ethnographic Review] is one of the oldest Russian academic journals dedicated to the study of peoples and cultures of the world. The journal was founded in 1926 (published as Etnografia in 1926-29; and as Sovetskaia Etnografia in 1930-1991) and is an edition of the Institute of Ethnology and Anthropology, Russian Academy of Sciences. The journal is published and distributed by Nauka publishers.

Publication frequency: 6 issues per year. ISSN 0869-5415. Russian Catalogue Index 70845. The journal is distributed through subscription only.

The journal carries articles and essays in anthropology (both sociocultural and physical), ethnology, ethnography, and cultural studies, as well as book reviews and reports of important events in the scholarly world. The editorial board welcomes interdisciplinary materials, such as lying in the border zones of anthropology and history, ethnology and sociology, and so on, but traditionally gives priority to those among them which contribute first of all to the field of anthropology/ethnology. Please visit the Submissions section for more information on the current areas of interest of the journal and general submission guidelines.
