About "Iran and the Caucasus" Journal

Iran and the Caucasus is a peer-reviewed multi-disciplinary journal. Published in four issues per year, the Journal promotes original, innovative, and meticulous research on the history (ancient, mediaeval and modern), culture, linguistics, literature (textology), folklore, social and cultural anthropology, and the political issues of the Irano-Caucasian world. Accepting articles in English, French and German, Iran and the Caucasus publishes path-breaking monographic studies, synoptic essays, as well as book reviews and book notes that highlight and analyse important new publications. Iran and the Caucasus is edited under the guidance of an Editorial Board consisting of prominent scholars from the area itself, as well as from beyond. It is unique in being a scholarly forum in the truest sense of the word on a region of growing importance, and a treasure-trove of information otherwise hard to get at.
