Aims and Scope

Društvena istraÅživanja is a journal for general social issues that fosters complete thematic and disciplinary openness. It publishes works in different social and humanistic disciplines (sociology, psychology, political science, psychiatry, history, law, economics, demography, linguistics, etc.), and also considers works that are interdisciplinary.
The editorial board only accepts manuscripts that are written in Croatian or English, which have not been previously published. Authenticity of the papers is verified by the CrossCheck online service (a plagiarism detection software). Manuscripts should be submitted only in electronic form online via the Open Journal System: http://www.pilar.hr/drustvenaistrazivanja.
