The Journal of Byelorussian Studies

In 1965 the Anglo-Belarusian Society began publishing a yearbook - The Journal of Byelorussian Studies, with an introduction by Prof. Robert Auty. The Journal was distributed annually to universities, libraries and private subscribers in the UK, the US, the Soviet Union and other countries throughout the world. As well as articles on Belarusian literature, linguistics, history and art, each number of the Journal included book reviews, a chronicle of current events, and a comprehensive bibliography for the preceding year. Separate copies are available from the Belarusian Library in London (£4 each; full set, 19 issues, is £45 in Britain, £55 - in Europe, £60 - other countries, incl. p/p).

In Belarus The Journal of Byelorussian Studies is available in the National Library and the Library of the Acadamy of Sciences
