Central Asian Survey

Central Asian Survey is the only established peer reviewed, multi-disciplinary journal in the world concerned with the history, politics, cultures, religions, and economies of the Central Asian and Caucasian regions. Original articles, review essays, and book reviews published in CAS reflect advances made by social sciences and humanities scholars who ground their research in: the former-Soviet republics of Central Asia, the North Caucasus, and the South Caucasus; Chinese Xinjiang, Mongolia, Afghanistan, Iran, and Turkey, as relate to Central Asia.

The journal spotlights work that illuminates the processes of local and regional change which make Central Asia and the Caucasus areas of great interest in both pre-modern and contemporary contexts.

CESS seeks to support the publication of peer-reviewed work which will elevate scholarship in our field. In this spirit, CESS members receive an 86%-off discount on a CAS subscription, reducing the rate to just $40/ year in 2020. Subscriptions can be taken out as part of the membership process.

We encourage our members– particularly those based in or from Central Eurasia– to submit strong and well-polished articles or book reviews to CAS. CAS is the chosen journal for the publication of CESS’ annual Graduate Student Paper Award winners.
