Founded by a group of European researchers, convinced of the necessity for free access to and publication of knowledge, pipss.org is a semesterly online journal devoted to the armed forces and power institutions of post-Soviet societies. Pipss.org is a multi-disciplinary journal, which addresses issues across a broad field of disciplines in human and social sciences. Its main objective is to study changes and their underlying mechanisms in post-Soviet republics, through the analysis of the institutions that remain most hidden from the public eye: armies and power institutions. As an electronic journal, pipss.org also aims to promote scholarly debate across as broad an audience as possible, and make CIS research available to Western scholars

Summary: This journal is meant to fill a gap in the world of scientific journals devoted to the study of power institutions. Special emphasis will be laid on current research in CIS countries, in order to encourage young researchers who remain isolated both because the spread of scientific findings produced in the Republics from the former USSR remains limited in the West, and because the Humanities and Social Sciences are still relatively ignored by specialists working on military issues
Mode of access: World Wide Web
The journal will be published in four languages (French, English, Russian, and German) as most authors will be able to write in their mother tongue as well as one other. This will ensure greater precision in the articles and avoid a decrease in scientific quality. For all articles not written in English, an English abstract will be given. The book reviews, however, will all be published in English
