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. The fascinating and sometimes incredibly confusing history of Russia, the Soviet Union, and post-Soviet states make our hobby a most interesting one!

The exhibit "Railway postmarks of the Russian Empire from 1852 to 1917" was developed to demonstrate the results of the author's many years quest for and research on the basic types and rare varieties of postmarks used in Russian postal wagons (PW) and railway stations, mostly on registered and underpaid mail.
