The Encyclopedia of Ukraine is an English language, free, online encyclopedia covering wide range of issues on Ukraine, including its history, people, geography, economy, culture, etc.

The resource is created and run by the Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies at the University of Alberta and the Shevchenko Scientific Society (Sarcelles, France) [1][2] (1984–93) and published by the University of Toronto Press.

The Encyclopedia has print and online variants. Its published edition consists of five volumes, almost 4,000 pages and some 12,500 alphabetical entries.

It was called as "the most comprehensive and balanced work in the English language on Ukraine and Ukrainians in the diaspora" and a "monumental publication" by the Canadian Journal of History.[2]

Volodymyr Kubiyovych was the editor-in-chief of Volumes I and II (published in 1984 and 1988 respectively). The concluding three volumes, with Danylo Husar Struk as editor-in-chief, appeared in 1993.[2]

The Internet Encyclopedia of Ukraine[edit]

The Internet Encyclopedia of Ukraine is a work in progress. Many new entries need to be added, and many of the existing entries need to be expanded and updated in order to reflect the many changes that have occurred and continue to occur in Ukraine and the rest of eastern Europe and in order to incorporate previously inaccessible information. The editorial staff and subject editors will be collecting and processing information systematically from a variety of sources and providing it to the international public in the form of a reliable, constantly revised and updated Internet publication.

The Internet Encyclopedia of Ukraine is an ambitious and costly undertaking whose goal is to produce and maintain the best and most authoritative electronic source of information in English about Ukraine.

The current Encyclopedia team consists of Roman Senkus, Managing Editor, Dr. Marko R. Stech, Project Manager, Andrij Makuch, Senior Manuscript Editor, Mark Andryczyk, Editorial Assistant, and a team of subject editors. This site was designed by Jaroslaw Kiebalo; Walter Kiebalo acted as consulting designer. Maps were scanned and edited by Bohdan Skrobach and Jaroslaw Kiebalo.
