About journal

Društvena istraživanja embraces thematic and disciplinary openness and therefore publishes works from various social and humanistic disciplines: sociology, psychology, politics, history, law, economics, demography, linguistics and other disciplines.

The journal publishes theoretical, empirical and review articles, and given the wide range of readers, priority is given to articles that are of wider social and international interest, in particular empirical research and international comparative research that are not locally specific and thematically narrowly specialized.

Only manuscripts of sufficient quality that meet the aims and scope of Društvena istraživanja will be reviewed.

The Editorial board only accepts manuscripts that are written in Croatian or English, which have not been previously published. Manuscripts should be submitted only in electronic form online via the Open Journal System: http://drustvena-istrazivanja.pilar.hr.

The Editorial board uses the iThenticate software Similarity Check to detect instances of overlapping and similar text in submitted manuscripts. By submitting your manuscript to this journal, you accept that your manuscript may be screened for plagiarism against previously published works.

Call for Papers in the Thematic Issue of the Journal Društvena istraživanja: „Monuments Heritage and the First World War Cultural Memory"


We invite authors to submit their papers for the thematic issue of Društvena istraživanja: "Monuments Heritage and the First World War Cultural Memory". The guest editors are dr. sc. Ljiljana Dobrovšak and dr.sc. Sandra Cvikić (Institute of Social Sciences Ivo Pilar).

In the period from 2014 to 2018, the Centenary of the First World War was celebrated all over the world. Numerous institutions (museums, archives, institutes, associations, etc.) took part in the celebration of the centennial in Croatia, thus provoking a great interest among the Croatian public through activities (works, exhibitions, shows, etc.) related to various aspects of this highly neglected subject of Croatian history. Namely, after the end of the First World War, Croatia found itself in a new state (the Kingdom of SHS/Kingdom of Yugoslavia). This state, however, has brought together nations that fought on both sides of the conflict – the winners and losers, thereby resulting in different attitudes towards the First World War’s heritage. Although previously marginalized, the last twenty years have been marked by a great number of new historical studies about the First World War. Still, insufficient attention is given to the monumental heritage, namely, the memorials to the soldiers killed in that war. Some of the sub-themes related to this topic are:

  • The First World War and Cultural Memory
  • The Centenary of the First World War
  • The politics of remembrance
  • First World War memorials and monuments
  • The First World War cemeteries
  • the First World War and the Kingdom of SHS/Yugoslavia.

 All papers received for the thematic issue must be edited in accordance with the instructions for authors and are subject to the usual procedure of double anonymous review, without the guarantee that they will be included in the thematic issue.

All papers must be submitted in English to the Editorial Board in electronic form via the Open Journal System on the journal's website by clicking Submit Manuscript.

When submitting the paper, select Suggestions for Theme Issue as the type of paper. Only papers submitted through the system will be included in the review process and are considered for publication.

The submission deadline is February 15, 2022.
