The Russian Academy of Sciences has resumed contributions to this RLG Citation Resources database.  In May, the bibliography was updated with 100,000 retrospective records in anthropology, archaeology, and history (covering articles published between 1986 and 1990) and close to 70,000 current records.

RAS is international in scope — its most significant contribution to indexing is access to Russian scholarly literature in the Social Sciences and Humanities.  While major Russian journals published in Moscow and Saint Petersburg are frequently covered in other indexes (e.g., MLA), the literature published outside of these population centers can only be found in this database.
