HURI's Publications Program

Established to fill a void in academic publishing, HURI's publishing program produces award-winning resources of the highest caliber. In addition to the journal Harvard Ukrainian Studies, we publish English translations of early Ukrainian literary monuments and a variety of monographs, including works of research and analysis, and comparative studies.

Our monograph publications are available for purchase through Harvard University Press and Amazon, and Harvard Ukrainian Studies is available directly through the Institute. HUS  is available digitally for subscribers and through participating libraries on the Harvard Ukrainian Studies website, JSTOR (all volumes, 1 year delay), EBSCO-Historical Abstracts (vols. 9–36), and PROQUEST (1977-2000; vols. 1-24) and (1998-2019; vols. 22-36).


Publishing in Ukrainian studies began at Harvard in 1968 with the creation of the Harvard Series in Ukrainian Studies. With the founding of the Ukrainian Research Institute at Harvard, this publishing program was broadened to include the journal Harvard Ukrainian Studies and a more diverse book publishing program. In recognition of the Millennium of Christianity in Rus'-Ukraine, the Harvard Library of Early Ukrainian Literature series was established, which publishes both facsimile and translation works from early and middle Ukrainian literature. The publications program now includes five book series, the journal, booklets and pamphlets, and online resources.

Since its inception, Ukrainian studies publishing at Harvard has been made possible by generous donations from private individuals, whom we gratefully acknowledge. HURI's publications program is conducted at the high standard of scholarship and editing that one would expect from Harvard.


HURI Publications also conducts extensive exchanges with Ukrainian studies institutions around the world. This affords the entry of works on Ukraine from these places into the general library collection of Harvard University, which might otherwise not be possible through commercial distribution avenues. HURI Publications has become the major Ukrainian studies publisher in the U.S., and provides editorial and intellectual standards for the conduct of Ukrainian studies internationally. We welcome inquiries from the general public.


The publications program collaborates with other centers at Harvard University and elsewhere, with partners as diverse as the Center for Jewish Studies at Harvard University and the Institute for Oriental Studies in Kyiv. The program has an ongoing collaboration with Krytyka Press, a non-profit scholarly press in Kyiv that publishes the intellectual journal Krytyka and scholarly books for the Ukrainian market. The program also acts as the United States representative for the Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies (CIUS) Press, which is based in Toronto.
