Economic Annals is an academic journal published quarterly by the Faculty of Economics, University of Belgrade [Subscription]. The journal publishes papers in English language, covering a wide range of economic areas, from business to general economy. It is ranked in the Elsevier Scopus® database by SCImago Journal & Country Rank Q3. The current issue is available on the website [Contents], as well as the earlier issues for the last five years [Archive]. The journal stimulates publishing results of both theoretical and empirical research, with a tendency to bridge the gap often occuring between the two. All papers are subject to anonymous reviews and can be published only if two positive references are obtained. The authors are expected to follow the standard publication procedures [Instructions to Authors], and to recognize the values of democratic society and modern economics. The Editorial Board particularly welcomes contributions that explore issues of transition economies.
