Author Guidelines

All articles that pass editorial assessment will be peer-reviewed by two independent external reviews. Those are double-blind peer-reviews in which neither identity of the author nor identity of the peer reviewer are revealed. The authors receive texts of the reviews to improve the article according to suggestions, comments, etc. Authors are obliged to mark all the changes made to the text. Even though peer reviewers are proposing the category of the article, the final decision is made by the Editorial Board. Only one contribution per author is allowed in one of the journal categories. 

Texts are to be submitted only in the digital form, in the MS Word programme; using Times New Roman font size 12 and 1,5 line spacing. The size of the font in footnotes is 10, without the line spacing.

Journal publishes articles not exceeding 30 pages (bibliography included), and reviews may contain up to 5 pages. In exceptional situations, the Editorial Board may approve the publishing of articles wider than the proposed standard.

Articles are considered complete if they contain an abstract (in Bosnian and English) not exceeding ten lines with five to seven key words divided by the comma (,). In the end of the text, the author should provide a longer summary in some of the world languages, with a list of the sources used and bibliography.

The author needs to send the following information in a separate document: name, name of the home institution, title and personal contact.

Citation style
