"KAVKAZ-FORUM" is a periodical academic journal of the North Ossetian Institute for Humanitarian and Social Research named after V.I. Abaev.

The journal was created in 2020 as a common platform for publishing materials of the traditional conferences of the Institute, which have already become a kind of scientific hallmark known to leading Caucasian scholars in Russia and abroad (“All-Russian Miller’s Readings”, “Nart’s Studies at the Turn of the XXth-XXIst Centuries”, “Guriev’s Readings”, “Genealogy of the Peoples of the Caucasus. Traditions and Modernity”), as well as other (unscheduled) scientific events organized by SOIGSI.
