Kikimora Publications

The Aleksanteri Institute’s academic in-house publisher, Kikimora Publications, specialises in scholarly works pertaining to Russia and Eurasia particularly in the humanities and social sciences. Our four refereed series - Kikimora Dissertations, Kikimora Studies on Russia and Eastern Europe, Aleksanteri Cold War Series and Aleksanteri Series - welcome proposals on dissertations, scientific monographs, textbooks and article compilations. In addition, the Aleksanteri Institute publishes unrefereed works-in-progress, reports, surveys and separate articles in Aleksanteri Papers (online publication).

All manuscripts to these series undergo a thorough double-blind peer review process. In order to start the process of submitting your work to our publication house, please take a moment to read the instructions through carefully. Kikimora Publications will offer you wholehearted assistance in managing, editing and marketing the publication, as well as overseeing the entire project from the manuscript phase to the finished book.

Since 1997, the Kikimora Publications has released over 80 monographs and anthologies. The books are available for purchase at the Aleksanteri Institute (download a complete list of publications on sale, pdf) and book store Ruslania.

We are making room for excellent new books this autumn so we've decided to offer you some of the older titles at remarkably low prices. Now you can purchase top-class academic works for 5 / 10 / 15 EUR. To the price will be added packing and mailing costs. These start from 5 € for Finland and 14 € for Europe, depending on the weight of the package.
