Iran and the Caucasus, by Brill, is a peer-reviewed multi-disciplinary journal. Published in two [soon to be four] issues per year, the Journal promotes original, innovative, and meticulous research on the history (ancient, mediaeval and modern), culture, anthropology, literature (textology), folklore, linguistics, archaeology, politics, and economy of the region. Accepting articles in English, French and German, Iran and the Caucasus publishes lengthy monographic essays on path-breaking research, synoptic essays that inform about the field and region, as well as book reviews that highlight and analyse important new publications. Iran and the Caucasus is edited under the guidance of an editorial board consisting of scholars from the region itself, as well as from Europe and the United States. It is therefore 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. Iran and the Caucasus is supported by the Caucasian Center for Iranian Studies in Yerevan, Armenia.
