History

The New Zealand Slavonic Journal was launched in 1967 by the Russian Section at Victoria University of Wellington as a biannual publication. It became an annual publication in 1982 published by the Department of Russian in conjunction with the Victoria University Press and printed by its printing department. Since 2004 the NZSJ has been published by the Russian Programme of the School of Languages and Cultures at the University of Canterbury (from 2009 to 2012 called the School of Languages, Cultures and Linguistics and now part of the School of Language, Social and Political Sciences).
