Scope of the Journal

Barents Studies: Peoples, Economies and Politics is an international, multidisciplinary peer-reviewed academic journal for delivering and discussing original and current research results concerning the peoples, economies, and politics in the Barents Euro-Arctic Region. The journal presents knowledge about different aspects affecting regional development within and outside the region.

The journal is based on empirical research in the Barents Region but with strong connections to social science theories and methodologies in general. The journal is meant for researchers, students, and readers interested in current issues and developments in the Barents Region.

The journal will be published electronically and currently also as a paper version. It will be easily accessible, free of charge, and will be distributed widely across the region and beyond. The journal will contain 3-4 peer-reviewed scientific articles. We also welcome reviews on recent regionally relevant books, news, announcements, presentations of current research, institutions, and significant projects.

The journal will be published electronically 1-2 times a year. The open calls for papers will be announced on this website.
