About the journal
The first issue of the journal «Ojkumena. Regional Researches» came out of print in December 2006. The journal was launched by the young scholars from various Vladivostok universities. Despite the diversity of their academic interests, the founding editors of the journal shared a belief that regional studies can, and should, exist as an integrated academic field. The support from the Vladivostok State University of Economics and Services made this project possible.
Target audience: authors and readers
The issues of the journal are sent to libraries, universities and research institutions in Moscow, Siberia and the Russian Far East. The journal publishes articles written by scholars from Russia and other countries. The editors encourage young scholars to submit their works to be considered for publication. The principal requirement for an article to be published is the quality and originality of the research, as well as its concern with the regional (territorial) dimensions of human life and society.
