Acta Baltico-Slavica is an interdisciplinary yearly journal featuring papers from the fields of linguistics, anthropology, historical studies, and cultural studies. In the years 1964–1977, it was published by Białostockie Towarzystwo Naukowe in Białystok, subsequently, from 1977 to 1992 by the Ossolineum in Wrocław. Since 1992, the journal has been published by the Institute of Slavic Studies of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw.
Acta Baltico-Slavica publishes research on the current and past cultural, linguistic and social phenomena in the Balto-Slavic borderland region. Papers that appear in the journal focus on transnational issues – our main interest rests in comparative studies and investigating universal processes rather than isolated facts from national histories. Research concerning borderlands was (and often still is) done from national standpoints – in Acta Baltico-Slavica, we attempt to promote studies which go beyond that perspective. Our mission is to create an interdisciplinary and transcultural scientific terminology, which departs from the ethnocentric perspective.
Our journal has received contributions from linguists, historians, anthropologists and cultural studies scholars from all over the world. We are open to novel and unconventional subjects and topics, non-standard research approaches, as well as discussions and polemics. Beginning with Issue 39, every issue of Acta Baltico-Slavica focuses on a single research subject.
The journal is published in open access and is indexed in databases including Scopus, Emerging Sources Citation Index (Clarivate Analytics) and European Reference Index for the Humanities Plus (ERIH Plus).
