About Slovo

Slovo is an interdisciplinary, postgraduate peer-reviewed academic journal, entirely managed and edited by postgraduate students at the University College London's School of Slavonic and East European Studies. It is dedicated to the study of the political, social, economic, and cultural affairs of Russia, Central and Eastern Europe, and Central Asia. Outside peer reviewers work in tandem with the Slovo Editorial Board.

The journal is published online on a biannual basis.

Slovo is committed to pursuing equity and inclusivity in all aspects of our work. We believe that good research is diverse, inclusive, and accessible. We stand in solidarity with those experiencing oppression and discrimination and will do everything we can to ensure our work does not reinforce inequality.
