The paper version, in publication since 1926, covers more than 1,700 journals, series,
and continuing publications of academies, universities, and research institutes in the
fields of humanities, natural sciences, and the social sciences, and it also covers the popular periodical literature.
Letopis' Zhurnal'nykh Statei provides access to the periodical literature of an
essential time in modern Russian history, beginning with the period of the
Khrushchev "Thaw" following the 20th CPSU Congress and continuing through
the first half of the so-called Brezhnev "Period of Stagnation". Virtually any student
or scholar studying Russian political science, literature, or history
between 1956-1975 will find Letopis' Zhurnal'nykh Statei to be an invaluable resource.
In August 2007, we added citations from 1973 to 1975 and released
version 1.2. The subject headings for 1973-75 are reconciled with the
headings for 1956-72.
