Laboratorium: Russian Review of Social Research is an open-access international journal since 2023 published by the Institute for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies (IERES) in cooperation with the Centre for Independent Social Research (founder and in 2009–2023 official publisher of the journal). Laboratorium comes out three times a year and publishes materials based on empirical qualitative social research in Russian and English.
The journal seeks to assist Russian scholars with integration into the international scientific field, as well as to promote in Russia contemporary work by foreign researchers.
One of the journal’s goals is to overcome the rigid barriers between different areas of social science and to advance contemporary research approaches and methods. The journal accepts submissions in any discipline of social science including (but not limited to) sociology, cultural anthropology, ethnography, social geography, cultural studies, sociolinguistics, and social history.
