Key Databases

Key Journals

  • JSTOR -- gives Duke subscribers access to the full runs of several leading English-language journals, such as Slavic Review and Russian Review. For best results, conduct an "advanced search" and use the "journal filter" to narrow results by "Slavic Studies."
  • Central and East European Online Library -- digital archive that provides access to full text PDF articles from humanities and social science journals on Central, Eastern and South-Eastern European topics.
  • Журнальный зал -- an online "periodicals reading room," with freely accessible issues of recent Russian-language periodicals, such as Novoe literaturnoe obozrenie; Duke has a subscription to many of these titles via Eastview's Databases of Social Science and Humanities Publications.
  • Portal for Central, Eastern and Balkan Countries --Includes Journal Southeastern Europe and Studi Slavistici, the first scholarly Italian journal devoted to this discipline systematically published online.
  • Virtual Library Eastern Europe (ViFaOst) -- interdisciplinary portal for East European Studies includes an A-Z list of journals on the region.
  • Electronic Journals Library -- the "Slaovnic journals section" of this University Regensburg Library guide offers a quick way to see what journals are online; which ones are free; and which ones are only accessible via a Duke Library subscription. For the latter, search the Duke online catalog.
