Studia Humana (SH) is a multi-disciplinary double blind peer reviewed journal publishing valuable contributions on any aspect of human sciences such as analytic philosophy and philosophical logic related to universal features of epistemology, philosophy of science, foundations and methodology of physics, philosophy of religion, philosophy of mind, praxeology, non-classical logics and their applications to methodology of science, linguistics or theology, etc.; political economy to provide a forum for the academic discussion of original ideas which explore new approaches and methodologies in economics with emphasis on fiscal policy, international trade and finance, industrial organization, social economics of legislation and legislative processes, methodology of Austrian school of economics, corporate finance and governance, economy in conjunction with issues of culture, identity, gender, and ecology, etc.; political science in the form of academic study of prospects and limits for transforming modern societies, including philosophy of law, e-governance, global governance and regulation, post-Socialist modernization, the protection of cultural heritage and minority rights, anarchism and freedom, etc.; sociology including academic articles and applied case study materials in all areas of sociology and social policy, but predominantly with a comparative perspective for approaches and methodologies that are not in mainstream to promote dialogue and exchange in looking for new theoretical means of conceiving the life-world.
The editors invite the submission of articles, book reviews, discussions, responses, and notices from professional scientists. It is particularly interested in publishing contributions by new authors who pursue their academic development. One of the objectives of SH is the provision of a suitable platform for the discussion in all areas of human sciences beyond the limits of Western-centrism, with emphasis on problems of post-Socialist European states and ideas marginal to mainstream.
SH is published in electronic and hard copy formats. Currently, SH has four electronic issues per year, which are published in four hard copy volumes. SH aspires to become a venue to connect post-Socialist human sciences to the world and thus the editors strongly encourage submissions in English language. The journal also aims to contribute to the understanding of society and state through the study of relevant institutions, using concepts belonging to the disciplines of philosophy, political science, legal science, economics, and sociology. The crossing of different disciplinary points of view will enable us to gain a deeper insight into the various aspects of the observed phenomena. Our main objective is to study changes and their underlying mechanisms in modern societies (e.g. in post-Soviet republics), through the analysis of the institutions that remain most hidden from the public eye.
The aim of the thematic sections is to provide a viewpoint on a given issue and suggest new approaches or avenues of research. The preparation of a thematic section is entrusted to two members of the editorial board, who jointly formulate the angle of approach to this theme. There are 5 to 10 articles per section. Calls for contributions will be also published on the journals website and in newsletters sent through internet.
