CFP: Radical Nationalism in Ukraine Yesterday and Today

Deadlines: June 1, 2013 (for non-Russian papers yet to be translated); July 1, 2013 (for Russian papers)

ZIMOS, the Institute for Central and East European Studies of The Catholic
University of Eichstaett-Ingolstadt, in Upper Bavaria, invites research
papers for its interdisciplinary Russian-language open-access web journal
"Forum for Contemporary East European History and Culture"

The Russian "Forum" has been published twice per year, since
2004, as a scholarly WWW periodical supplementing ZIMOS's printed
German-language "Forum fuer osteuropaeische Ideen- und
Zeitgeschichte." See

We will publish a special section of the "Forum" on
ultra-nationalism in Ukraine, in the journal's 19th web-edition.
Submitted papers may deal with both, ukrainophone, ethnocentric
historic/current right-wing extremism (e.g. OUN-B, "Svoboda"), and
russophone, pan-Slavic historic/current radical anti-Westernism
(e.g. PSPU, "Rodina"). This Russian-language WWW project parallels
somewhat similar English- and Ukrainian-language collected papers projects
currently implemented within the journals "Communist and Post-Communist
Studies," "Russian Politics and Law," and "Ukraina Moderna," as well as by
the Friedrich Ebert Foundation.

We require properly footnoted, scholarly researched, well-structured, and
thoroughly edited Russian-language texts with a length of no less than
4,000 and no more than 14,000 words. Papers should be based on primary as
well as secondary sources, which are fully listed and adequately
presented, in footnotes.

Papers accepted content-wise for publication will only be published in the
case of a proper adaptation of their linguistic quality and formal style
(footnotes, punctuation, headings, references, citations etc.) to the
standards of the "Forum" by the author/s. When preparing your text for
publication, please, use this formal style required of the final editions
of the papers to appear:


All versions of the papers should be submitted as MS Word Documents.

For authors who wish to publish an English-, German- or Ukrainian-language
text in Russian language, we can provide qualified Russian translating
services. We have professional interpreters who will provide high quality
translations which will be edited - stylistically and orthographically -
by the journal's editorial board members.

Unfortunately, however, we do not have funds to pay translators. Thus, we
regret to state that the costs for translation will, as outlined below,
have to borne fully by the author her- or himself. In addition, after
provision of a draft translation by our expert-translator, authors will be
required to carefully check the translated Russian draft version, before
the translator produces the final version of the text for editing by the
journal's board and printing.

The translator will, after delivering a satisfactory final version of the
translation, have to be paid, by the author/s, EUR0.07 per word of the
English, German or Ukrainian original version of the article, i.e., for
instance, EUR350 for a 5,000-word article. The word count includes also
non-Russian bibliographical literature listed in the footnotes that will
not be translated into Russian or transcribed into Cyrillic, yet the
formal style of which will be adapted to the format of the "Forum" by the
translator. The copyright of the Russian version of the article remains
with the translator until the author has made payment for the translation.

Authors of texts that have been published in English, German or Ukrainian
before are advised to clarify with the editors of the periodical, book, or
non-Russian web site (where the paper originally appeared) whether
re-publication in a Russian-language web journal is permissible. The
editors of
the "Forum" will not take responsibility for any violations of

Please, submit your text until either
