The journal is a good opportunity for a wide circle of archaeologists, historians, ethnologists and interdisciplinary researchers to participate in discussions and publish their works.
The journal focuses on reconstruction and interpretation of cultural-historical processes on the vast spaces in the Volga region, the Ural and the North-Caspian region, which used to be, at times, a cross-point between Europe and Asia, not just geographically, but also culturally. These territories used to generate large-scale changes in the most remote geographic areas. A growing international attention to this exceptional macro-region of the ancient Eurasia makes the Povolzhskaya Arkheologiya journal a reputable platform, where specialists from different countries – from Finland, Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania and Moldova to Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Mongolia – to exchange their opinions and ideas.
The editors’ main goal is to ensure integration of international research efforts, early presentation of field survey findings for a scientific discussion, as well as publication of current analytical research and interpretations and assure the highest quality of publications.
