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. To find out more about Similarity Check visit http://www.crossref.org/crosscheck/index.html.

The authors are not charged by the journal for the cost of receiving, reviewing and publishing papers. The journal is funded by the Ministry of Science and Education of the Republic of Croatia, by subscription to the print edition and funds from the publisher.

Invitation to the authors for the thematic issue of the journal Društvena istraživanja titled "Psychosocial aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic"


We invite all authors to submit their manuscripts for the thematic issue "Psychosocial aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic". The guest editor of the issue is Associate Professor Dr. Sc. Slavica Šimić Šašić (University of Zadar).

The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic and extraordinary preventive measures aimed at preventing the spread of the virus have caused numerous changes in the daily functioning of individuals and communities: restriction of movement, self-isolation measures, social distancing, work and education from home, job loss, financial insecurity, etc. The situation in which almost all of humanity found itself has caused fear and insecurity, stress and threat not only to physical but also to mental health. All these changes in daily life require adjustment that is determined by the complex interaction of a number of personal and environmental factors. Therefore, we invite authors to exchange the latest scientific knowledge regarding psychosocial aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic in the thematic issue of Društvena istraživanja “Psychosocial Aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic”. Some of the subtopics related to the pandemic and/or its consequences are:

-       Stress and adjustment

-       Protective factors, resilience, well-being

-       Education

-       Job, work role

-       Social relations

-       The role of digital technology

All manuscripts 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 guarantee that they will be included in the thematic issue. Manuscripts can be in Croatian or English (manuscripts in English are preferred). The deadline for submitting manuscripts is September 30, 2020.

Please submit your manuscripts to the Editorial Board in electronic form via the Open Journal System on the journal's website by clicking Submit Manuscript.
