As the editor in chief of the journal CIVITAS I look forward to challenges of creating a journal that will enhance the quality of research in the realm of social sciences on an international level. The goals set are high but not impossible to reach. I should express my thanks to my predecessor, the former editor in chief, professor Boris Kršev PhD, for his efforts and energy to maintain the continuity of the journal since 2011.
The journal CIVITAS has been registered at the Repository of the National Library of Serbia and at CEON as a scientific journal of national significance and soon international indexation and official categorization is to be expected.
CIVITAS is published and issued twice a year by the Faculty for Legal and Business Studies dr Lazar Vrkatić. The journal gives an opportunity to authors to publish previously unpublished works containing results of scientifically based, practically useful and socially responsible research; each work will be evaluated by two expert anonymous reviewers.
The journal contains scientific works from the area of law, security studies, psychology, philology and economics as well as interdisciplinary studies related to the areas mentioned.
CIVITAS is an international journal where each work is reviewed by two anonymous expert reviewers. The aim of the publisher, Faculty for Legal and Business Studies dr Lazar Vrkatić has been to promote exchanging ideas among researchers engaged at the Faculty with those from the neighborhood, a project that has become widely accepted.
The authors whose works have been published as well as the frequent citations from those works represent a solid testimony to the openness of the journal to welcome all researchers. the rising interest among authors from Serbia and from the regionis a confirmation of its quality and recognition.
We proudly note that the journal CIVITAS has recieved, within a fairly short period, favourable acceptance not only among fellow researchers but also by the wider audience and that is what gives the editorial staff a powerful motive for further work.
