The journal Sign Systems Studies
was established in 1964 by Juri Lotman (initially as Труды по знаковым системам - Σημειωτικη) , and is thus the oldest international semiotic periodical. Originally (until 1992) a Russian-language series, it is now published in English, and has become a central institution in the semiotics of culture.
Starting from 1998, Sign Systems Studies is published as an international peer-reviewed journal on the semiotics of culture and nature. Issued regularly, one volume per year, it is indexed in major scientific databases. Since 2001, each volume includes two issues.
