Book series “Soviet and Post-Soviet Politics and Society” in the #Scopus and #WebofScience citation indeces @ibidem11 @ColumbiaUP

Having been registered with Scopus Elsevier in 2019, the ibidem-Verlag Book Series “Soviet and Post-Soviet Politics and Society” (#SPPS) has, until the end of 2020, accumulated 147 entries in this Citation index. The monographs and chapters in collected volumes listed here were published within SPPS between 2018 and 2020: https://www.scopus.com/sourceid/21100865030#tabs=1. So far, SPPS’s ranking in the three relevant #Scopus categories “#History,” “#PoliticalScience and #InternationalRelations,” and “Political Science and #Sociology” is modest. Yet, the volumes and papers published in SPPS during the last three years will get additional quotations during the next years.

More monographs and collections are in print and preparation: https://www.ibidem.eu/en/reihen/gesellschaft-politik/soviet-and-post-soviet-politics-and-society.html. English-language SPPS volumes are also distributed by Columbia University Press here: https://cup.columbia.edu/series/soviet-and-post-soviet-politics-and-society?amount=96.

Starting this year, original SPPS volumes are also being registered with the new Clarivate Web of Science Book Citation Index: http://wokinfo.com/cgi-bin/bkci/search.cgi?search=”Soviet+and+Post-Soviet+Politics+and+Society”&searchtype=and.

Zoom Conf.: Ukraine in East-Central Europe: Kyiv’s Bilateral Relations and Prospects of Regional Multilateralism @IDMVienna, 18 Sep 2020, 14:20-19:30

[Feel free to forward, share or post.]


International Hybrid Conference

“Ukraine in East-Central Europe:
Kyiv’s Bilateral Relations and Prospects of Multilateralism in the Region”

Zoom & IDM, Vienna, 18 September 2020, 2:20-7:30 p.m. (CEST)
Conference organized by IDM in cooperation with Paneuropa-Union (Vienna) and Ukrainian Institute for the Future (UIF, Kyiv)Website: http://www.idm.at/veranstaltungen/aktuelle-veranstaltungen/item/ukraine-in-east-central-europe
Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/328324144906900/Youtube Livestream: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K4Nq0m3HJmo&feature=youtu.be


What is the role of Ukraine for the future of East-Central Europe, and vice versa? Where does Kyiv politically stand now, and should it strategically engage, in the future, within the area from Prague to Tallinn, from Riga to Baku? How can Ukraine’s relations with other East-Central European countries develop? What are the chances, opportunities and hindrances for these bilateral relations to grow, broaden and intensify, or to stagnate and even deteriorate? Can Kyiv expect and should thus work towards new bilateral treaties with its geographically closest strategic partners, and if so – with which countries towards what kind of agreements? Is there – if such upgraded relations were to develop – an opportunity to create not only deeper bilateral ties? Are there also chances for new multi-lateral networks or structures? Could such novel multilateralism around Ukraine go beyond the already existing, yet geographically and functionally circumscribed Organization for Democracy and Economic Development (GUAM), Visegrad Four, Bucharest Nine Group, and Three Seas Initiative?
