CROATIAN SOCIOLOGICAL REVIEW publishes theoretical, empirical, and methodological articles of general interest for sociology and related disciplines, with an emphasis on articles that contribute to better understanding of topics relevant for the context of Croatia, the West Balkans and, more generally, Central and Eastern Europe. The journal also welcomes propositions of thematic issues. The accepted contributions fulfill the requirements of academic relevance and scientific excellence, which are confirmed by two positive blind peer reviews. The journal also publishes book and conference reviews, as well as shorter essays / critical discussions / educational or popularization texts in the Forum section.
Articles are published in Croatian or English. Under certain circumstances, the editors can decide to publish articles in other languages.
