Make a submission

The North Caspian Report is always open to submissions from guest contributors. As a multidisciplinary platform inteded to enable communication and collaboration between all those interested in the past, present and future of our region, we welcome all kinds of authors — political analysts, anthropologists, historians, journalists, politicians, grassroots activists, bloggers and more. Even if you are a total beginner, your interest in the region is what matters the most to us. Do not hesitate to get in touch with us to check if the topic you have in mind is worth covering and ask for a piece of advice.

All of our publications are at least bilingual. Our primary working languages at the North Caspian Institute are English and Russian. This does not mean you have to submit your work in both languages. You can do this if you want, but it is equally fine to write in just one of these languages. If your work is accepted for publication, we will translate it to the other language. We also welcome original articles and essays in other languages native to our region or commonly spoken in it such as Kazakh, Kalmyk, Tatar and Nogai. These will be translated to both English and Russian.

Our primary focus is on Astrakhan and Kalmykia but we define the broader North Caspian as including Atyrau, Mangystau, North Dagestan and parts of Volgograd Oblast besides these two regions. By extension, we are also interested in discussions relevant to all of Central Asia, as well as all of the indigenous communities and other ethnic minorities currently living under Russian control.

Submissions to the North Caspian Report are typically between 600 and 2,000 words but there is no strict limit. When referencing other published work, use hyperlinks for sources available online and APA-style citations for print journals and books. Submissions should be emailed to as MS Word files or Google Docs. Please include a relevant cover image as a separate attachment, if available.
