Aims and Scope:

Studia mythologica Slavica is international scientific journal on the mythology, spiritual culture and tradition of Slavic and also other nations and people. It is published by the Institute of Slovenian Ethnology of the Scientific Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts, and by the Dipartimento di Lingue e Letterature Straniere, Università degli Studi di Udine. 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, anthropology, 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, and since then it has been published once a year in a multi-language edition, in print and on the internet. Each year, it is distributed in exchange for hundred scientific publications from around the world. The articles are published in English, Italian, German and all Slavic languages. All articles have long summaries and an abstract in the English language.

All articles are examined by one of the editors upon receipt, after which they are sent to two external anonymous reviewers. The instructions for authors are published on the internet and in the journal.
