The scientific journal Annals of the Croatian Political Science Association publishes primarily papers in political science, but also papers in communication sciences and related disciplines of social sciences and humanities, such as history, sociology, philosophy, law, economics and others, if they address topics that are important for political science.
The magazine is published in digital form no later than December of the year to which the respective issue refers, while the printed edition will be published no later than January of the following year. It is possible to publish thematic blocks (and exceptionally, individual texts), according to the models "online first" or "first look".
Papers are published in Croatian and English.
Access to the journal is open (Open Access Journal).
The Annals publish exclusively scientific papers that have been positively evaluated by two reviewers in an anonymous review process. If the reviews differ significantly, the editorial board orders a third review and makes the final decision. Only articles that have not previously been published in any scientific publication, in whole or in part, in Croatian or another language and that are not in the process of being considered for publication in another scientific publication are published.
Papers are submitted in Word format via the electronic system OJS (http://hrcak.srce.hr/ojs/index.php/analihpd/index). Positively peer-reviewed papers are categorized as original scientific papers, review articles and research notes.
All the articles submitted to the Annals of the CPSA are checked for plagiarism with appropriate plagiarism detection software.
The paper or part of the paper published in the Annals may not be published in other scientific publications without the prior permission of the editors and information that they were first published in the Annals.
