Written Monuments of the Orient


Since 2015, the journal “Written Monuments of Orient” has been published by the Institute of Oriental Manuscripts (founded as the Asiatic Museum in 1818) of the Russian Academy of Sciences as an English-language version of the periodical “Pis'mennye pamiatniki Vostoka”. It publishes articles, which are covering all theoretical and practical problems of studying written heritage of the peoples of the Orient. 

The journal “Pis'mennye pamiatniki Vostoka”.  was founded in 1970 through the efforts of the staff of the Leningrad Branch of the Institute of Oriental Studies (now the Institute of Oriental Manuscripts of the Russian Academy of Sciences) and came out until 1987 as an annual publication. In 2004, the publication was revived as a biannual journal accepting material mainly in Russian.

The Editorial Board office of the journal “Written Monuments of Orient” is located in St. Petersburg, Russia.

The journal is published by the Moscow "Vostochnaia Literatura" (“Oriental Literature”) Publishing House with a frequency of 2 issues per year.

We propose to publish material of the following kinds:

  • Theoretical articles on matters of Oriental textology (textual analysis, methods of source criticism, principles for the publication, translation and producing commentaries of Oriental texts).
  • Publications of texts and translations of writings and extracts from them, and also of selections of material from written sources on particular questions of history or the history of literature.
  • Source studies and textological researches (analysis of individual sources, sources relating to particular issues, and so on).
  • Descriptions and surveys of individual manuscripts and collections of manuscripts; reports about newly discovered manuscript materials.
  • Reviews of textological works, of publications of sources and source-study researches, as well as surveys of such publications.
  • Materials and papers on matters of historical terminology and also on ancillary historical and textological disciplines (palaeography, diplomatics, sphragistics, numismatics, epigraphy).
