We publish a wide range of monographs, memorial books, post-conference publications and academic journals, including digital projects and open access publications, mainly in the field of the humanities and social sciences.

Our mission is to disseminate the outstanding academic achievements of researchers from Central and Eastern Europe using both traditional editing and modern media within the framework of international academic communication. We publish materials in humanities and social sciences, focusing in particular on history, political sciences, Slavic studies and cultural studies.
