The Great Russian Encyclopedia (GRE) (Russian: Большая российская энциклопедия or БРЭ, transliterated as Bolshaya rossiyskaya entsiklopediya or academically as Bolšaja rossijskaja enciklopedija) is a new universal Russian encyclopedia, to be completed in 35 volumes, published since 2004 by Bolshaya Rossiyskaya Entsiklopediya. It is released under the auspices of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) after President Vladimir Putin signed a presidential decree №1156 in 2002.[1] According to the encyclopedia editor, Sergei Leonidovich Kravets, the complete edition could be released by 2016.[2]

The chief editor of the encyclopedia is Yury Osipov, the president of the RAS. The editorial board has more than 80 RAS members, including the Nobel Prize laureates Zhores Alferov and Vitaly Ginzburg.[1]

The first, introductory volume, released in 2004, is dedicated to Russia. The RAS plans to publish an updated version every five years. Twenty-seven volumes were released between 2005 and 2015, covering the range from "A" to "Пустыня" (Desert).[3]
