Mémoires de la Société Finno-Ougrienne

Mémoires de la Société Finno-Ougrienne (Suomalais-Ugrilaisen Seuran Toimituksia, "Publications of the Finno-Ugrian Society") is an international monograph series first published in 1890, concentrating on high-quality research on the Uralic and Altaic languages. In addition to monographs, the series also includes article collections focusing on specific themes. There is an international Editorial Board for the series which complies with the practice of peer manuscript review.

The publications in the series are typically based on empirical research. The core themes include languages, language groups and language communities which have a connection to their traditional linguistic ecosystem. Books considered for publication can cover the following topics:

(i) Basic research on the Uralic languages
(ii) Grammars and complete manuscript-type presentations
(iii) The relationship between the Uralic and Altaic languages and their neighbouring languages, especially the Indo-European languages
(iv) Research history
(v) Thematic and multidisciplinary article collections

Books approved by the Finno-Ugrian Society are published according to an open access principle, openly available as digital versions one year after release.


There has been an abundance of article collections previously published for the series on the different branches of the Uralic languages. Many of them are based on materials collected by scholars sent by the Finno-Ugrian Society in the late 19th and early 20th century. In the early decades, research carried out on ethnology and folklore was also published in the series.
