The Nicholai Studies is an international peer-reviewed academic journal dedicated to research of theological and ecclesiastical contribution of Nicholai Velimirovich, as well to the research of a wider context in which he lived and created, i.e. the reception of his ideas and his heritage in general (see On Nicholai Studies journal).
Nicholai Velimirovich, in Serbian: Николај Велимировић (before taking monastic vows: Никола Велимировић), in Russian and Bulgarian: Николай Велимирович, in Greek: Νικόλαος or Νικολάι Βελιμίροβιτς. His name in English and other languages written in Latin script can be found in the following transcriptions: Nikolaj, Nikola, Nikolai, Nicolai, Nicola, Nicholai, Nicolae, Nicholas, Nikolas, Nikolaus, and his surname as Velimirović, Velomirovic, Velimirovic, Velimirovich, Velimirovitch, Velimirovici or Velimirovitz: this can be confusing, but there was not one standardized form of transcription of his name from the beginning of publishing of his works in English and other languages written in Latin script. In our journal, we will attempt to use the most common transliteration of his name from Serbian, and also according to his signature — as Nicholai Velimirovich, which is the same as he used to write his own name in English.
The only exceptions could be transliterations of his name in quotations and in references, where we will attend to keep the original form of transcription of Velimirovich’s name and surname.
Nicholai Studies primarily publishes original scientific papers dedicated to the study of theology and spirituality. The journal is open for scientific papers and review articles based on research in other areas, like social sciences and humanities, philosophy, sociology, politicology, philology, literature, history, historiography, archival research etc. — as long as they correspond with the topic of the journal.
