Overseen by an international advisory board, Studia Mythologica Slavica brings to the fore in-depth examinations of Slavic mythopoetic traditions and comparative studies of the mythology and religious notions of older Slavic, Eurasian, and other civilisations. The character of the publication is both international and interdisciplinary, covering an exciting range of themes from the fields of ethnology, philology, history, archaeology, religious studies, history of literature, and philosophy. It also brings new interpretations of historical sources and presents new discoveries, material, and field research.
The published articles are available in the archive section of their website. Contributions are in English or feature a summary in English.
In 2004 the journal launched the book series Studia Mythologica Slavica – Supplementa, which to date comprises three titles: Mordovian Mythology (Devyatkina), Pioneers of Jewish Ethnography and Folklore Studies in Eastern Europe (Bar-Itzhak), and Mirila/A Cultural Phenomenon (Pleterski, et al.).
