Founded in 1970, Social Sciences was conceived as a scholarly publication tasked with promoting the Marxist-Leninist approach to social sciences worldwide. Since Gorbachev’s perestroika, however, the periodical’s ideological framework underwent certain modifications becoming a vivid chronicle of the collapse of the old communist dogmas and the transition to new ways of approaching social, economic and historical issues.
Over the decades since its founding, the journal has become an important and a unique platform for prominent papers and studies selected from various institutes of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Covering the most pressing issues of Russia’s social and economic development, Social Sciences includes articles on philosophy, history, economics, politics, sociology, law, philology, psychology, ethnography, archaeology, literature and culture.
Social Sciences has been translated and published by East View Press since 1998.
The Social Sciences Digital Archive includes all issues published from 1970 on (over 6,500 articles), with an additional year’s worth of content added on an annual basis.
