Practical guidelines

  1. The length of the manuscript should not exceed 20 pages (including notes, references, appendices, tables, figures, charts, etc.). A paper must be written in English in text processor Microsoft Word, using font Palatino Linotype (size 11), in Latin alphabet, single spacing.
  2. Page setup: A4, margins: top 3 cm; bottom 3 cm; left 2,5 cm; right 2,5 cm.
  3. Paragraph setup: first line indentation 0,6 cm, paragraph spacing: before 2 pt and after 2 pt.
  4. Title: right, bold, size 16
  5. The author's name: last, middle and first name (bold, size 11) without titles. The author's affiliation name of institution, city, state, and country should be together with the author's name. Behind the name of the first author, a footnote should be inserted containing address and email of the first author.
  6. Abstract: italic, size 11, 3 line behind the author's name, the maximum length of 250 words. Key words should be 1 line behind the abstract up to ten key words.
  7. Avoid endnotes.
  8. Tables and figures should be numbered (1,2,3 etc.), in italics centred. All tables and figures (drawings) must be black & white.
  9. Structure of the manuscript (only two levels). First heading: left, bold, size 12, before 18 after 9 pt. Second heading: left indention 0,6 cm, bold, size 12, before 12 after 6 pt.
  10. Reference to articles and books in the text: Give full name (first name, middle initial, and last name) of author(s) and year of publication in the first citation, with page number(s) where appropriate. For example: Glenn Firebaugh (1999) [first reference]; Firebaugh (1999) [subsequently]; Andrea Boltho and Gianni Toniolo (1999) [first reference], Boltho and Toniolo (1999) [subsequently]; Albert Berry, François Bourguignon, and Christian Morrisson (1983) [first reference], Berry, Bourguignon, and Morrisson (1983) [subsequently]. When more than one work by the same author is cited, give the last name of author and year of publication in parentheses for each subsequent citation. When listing a string of references within the text, arrange first in chronological order, then alphabetically within years. If there are four or more authors, refer to the first author, followed by et al. and the year; for example: Stefan Fölster et al. (1998). If there is more than one publication referred to in the same year by the author(s), use the year and a, b, etc. (example: 1997a, b). References to authors in the text must exactly match those in the Reference section.
  11. Abstracts would be sent to Editor-in-Chief by email:
  12. List of references (in alphabetical order by author' last names) should be at the end of the manuscript. Economic analysis use AEA rules for references.

Submiting papers

Deadline for submitting final papers is:

  • for Spring issue: March 31
  • for Fall issue: September 30.

Important notice: Authors can publish only one paper in a journal on a year basis.


The Editorial Board will forward the submitted articles to the relevant referees. The reviewing procedure requires that the original texts should not be signed by the author. Instead, a separate cover page should be provided, containing only the title of the paper and the basic information about the author, followed by a page containing both in Serbian and in English: the title of the paper (not longer than 70 characters including spaces), an abstract of 100 words maximum (mathematical symbols excluded), up to 5 keywords, and the classification code in accordance with the topics is required.
