Analytical Bulletin (AB, Arm. Վերլուծական տեղեկագիր (Verlutsakan teghekagir)) is a biannual academic journal that focuses on the Caucasus and the Middle East, critically analyzing social, cultural, religious, and political perspectives and developments in these regions. The Analytical Bulletin is published by the Center for Culture and Civilization Studies, which was founded in 2007 within Yerevan State University and reorganized into an independent foundation in 2021. Due to this reorganization, there was a publishing gap in the journal's history. However, the CCCS reorganization is now complete, and new issues have been published since then.
The Analytical Bulletin seeks to stimulate social and political debates on current and historical issues in the Caucasus and the Middle East regions. The variety of viewpoints published in the journal fosters a multifaceted understanding of these regions, and the journal welcomes papers from a wide range of disciplines.
Analytical Bulletin is a CrossRef member and provides DOIs (Digital Object Identifiers) for reliable and easy citation. To support global knowledge sharing, the content of Analytical Bulletin is open for access.
The 17th issue of the Analytical Bulletin contains four peer-reviewed articles, two book reviews and a conference review that concentrate on the Caucasus and the Middle East and critically analyzes social, cultural, religious, and political perspectives and developments in these regions.
