Open access

Our mission is to present current results of scientific and theoretical research from areas of economics, management and business data processing, as well as to provide book reviews, scientific critical opinion, as well as our position on technology.

All scientific and technical articles published in the Journal are subject to a mandatory double-blind peer review by two independent reviewers.

Why subscribe and read

  • Economics - Innovative and Economic Research Journal has been published for only three years, as of today. It represents a result of great effort and enthusiasm of its publishers and editorial staff, as well as of a number of authors who saw Economics as something completely different and new.
  • Eagerness for continuous improvement of the Journal in terms of quality. Introduction of new content remains a permanent goal for everyone from both the scientific and professional section of the editorial board. Although we have published only four issues to this day, each of those issues has elaborated a broad list of topics that may be of interest to academic economists, but also to other professionals focused on economic and social issues and development.
  • Our Journal is becoming increasingly comprehensive, followed by a constant improvement in terms of quality. While the Journal's general focus has been on the adjacent region, its editorial board is international. Economics - Innovative and Economic Research Journal covers current issues and problems of theoretical and empirical economics, reforms, economic development, with a particular emphasis on South-eastern Europe.
  • In spite of numerous (primarily financial) difficulties imposed on the publishers of periodically issued Journals and other publications, our journal maintains its progress. Although 2014 was marked by catastrophic floods striking the mid- Balkans, with Bosnia and Herzegovina having suffered the most, the spring issue of Economics (from June 2015) brought greatly improved content and quality, even announcing prompt preliminary analyses of the above natural disaster.
  • Economics - Innovative and Economic Research Journal is published bilingually, in two columns - both Serbian and English. Each segment of the journal has been carefully proofread. Its articles have been made available to readers from around the world to use, quote and to compare their own findings with those published in the journal.
