I am delighted to introduce the first issue of the CIVITAS journal for 2021. For the past 9 years, the journal has continuously published articles dealing with various contemporary issues in the fields of law, security, psychology, philology, and economics, as well as interdisciplinary research involving the abovementioned fields.
The CIVITAS journal has been ranked as a prominent national journal (M52 category) pursuant to the decision of the Serbian Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development. The journal has also been indexed in several international databases: ERIH PLUS, CNKI (Chinese research database), Ulrich’s Periodicals Directory, J-Gate (Indian bibliographic database), and CEEOL (Central and Eastern European Online Library)..
As of this issue, the journal will be published both in Serbian and English.
The articles in this issue deal with various topics in social sciences: time perspective as a stress predictor among executives, social deviations and “the black wave” in Yugoslav cinema, perception of organizational justice, impact of second-instance tax administrative acts on Serbia’s budget, the ne bis in idem principle in the context of European arrest warrant, marital paternity in contemporary family law, and evolution of prison as an institution. This issue also includes the review of the book Interdependence Between Insurance and Entrepreneurship: Theoretical and Empirical Analysis.
Journal details, instructions for authors and reviewers, editorial board and reviewers’ details can be found on the journal web site in both English and Serbian. Papers may be submitted online following the link http://civitas.rs/index.php/prijava-rada or via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, I wish to thank all the authors for their contributions, and invite prospective collaborators to submit their papers dealing with issues in social sciences, which CIVITAS has published continuously since 2011.
Until the next issue, with kind regards,,
Professor Vladimir Njegomir Novi Sad, 8. August 2021
