The Journal is distributed annually to universities, libraries and private subscribers in the UK, the US, Belarus and other countries throughout the world. 

The Journal publishes articles on Belarusian literature, linguistics, foreign relations, civil society, history and art, as well as book reviews.

The Journal is the oldest English language double-blind peer-reviewed periodical on Belarusian studies. It is the only academic periodical about Belarus indexed by EBSCO, ERIH PLUS, Google Scholar and other databases.

    On the 23rd of November 1906 the first number of the Belarusian weekly journal Naša Niva (Our Cornfield) was published in Vilna.
