The Rossica Society publishes two journals per year, the first in the Spring and the next in the Fall.
The journal consists of scholarly articles focused on all aspects of Russian philately that may include information on the pre-stamp days of Russia, Imperial postage, prison mail, World War correspondence, or the postage of post-Soviet states.
