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.

The journal supports an open approach, which means that all of its contents are freely available without charging users or their institutions. Users are allowed to read, upload, copy, distribute, print out, search, and share links to the full text of the articles or use them in any other legal way without requesting explicit permission from the author or publisher.
