Demokratizatsiya   is an international journal which covers the historical and current transformations in the Soviet Union and its successor states. The journal covers politics, economics, social issues, crime, legal systems, nationalities, international relations, human rights, and other topics, as well as the history of Soviet totalitarianism and its transformation in the perestroika period. The journal welcomes submissions by recognized and emerging academics, journalists, practitioners and other specialists.

Demokratizatsiya publishes English language articles ranging from 6,000 to 10,000 words in length. Please list all references in standard footnote style.

Each article submitted will be evaluated by double blind peer review by at least two reviewers. We hope to respond to each submission within two months.
