Russian academic military journals are still valuable primary sources of Russian defence and military studies. One of the best-known periodicals is the Voiennaia mysl’ and its predecessors. Now East View Publications have widened their database collection with the historical volumes of this journal. During the Soviet era Voiennaia mysl’ was published in parallel secret and top-secret editions – these are not included in EastView collections but are available as English translation in CIA’s public electronic databases. This paper discusses on the significance of academic journals as primary sources, their availability and usability and the existence of parallel secret editions.
