Достоевский и мировая культура(Literary Studies) is a scholarly journal established by the major research center for the study of world literature and folklore in Russia — A.M. Gorky Institute of World Literature of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IWL RAS, 2016). The journal has both a print and an electronic version. The Internet version is a full-text analogue of the print copy and is in the public domain.

The main objective of the journal is to share fundamental and original results of the research in the world literary heritage taken in its broad chronological (from the ancient times to our day) and ethno-geographical (peoples of Russia, Europe, America, Asia, Africa, and Australia) aspects. It covers the following branches of philological studies:

- literary history and theory,

- comparative studies,

- folklore studies,

- textology, literary and folklore sources,

- historical and theoretical poetics,

- history of philology.

Besides articles in literary studies and folklore, the journal invites inter-disciplinary works bordering with linguistics, ethnology, art history, cinema and theatre studies, history, and other humanitarian disciplines.

The journal aims to encourage intellectual exchange among Russian and foreign scholars in regard to the most relevant philological questions and is open to the representatives of different contemporary schools of literary and folklore studies. It publishes the most recent academic studies in literature and folklore not limiting the submitted materials by any constraints related to specific national traditions, research schools or fields of philological knowledge.

The journal posing itself within the broad international context of literary research, accepts and publishes articles in six languages : Russian, English, French, German, Spanish, and Italian. One of the main academic premises of Studia litterarum is to demonstrate the variety of approaches and the poliphony of research trends that may compliment but may also challenge each other.

The journal is aimed at professional audience of scholars – experts in world literature – and readers interested in the in-depth, specialized study of recent scholarly achievements in different fields of philology.

The Editorial Department of the journal is responsible for its content’s compliance with the internationally recognized criteria of academic relevance. All the materials go through the obligatory process of double-blind peer review that serves as a guarantee of their compliance with these criteria. Among our reviewers are leading scholars from all over the world: members of the Editorial Board, International Editorial Council, and other invited experts, authoritative experts in their specific fields of philological knowledge.
