Categories of papers

Original scientific paper is a detailed report on the original scientific research accomplished by the use of scientific methods, which are described in the manuscript and allow the research to be repeated as needed, and the established facts to be verified. Original scientific papers are organised according to the IMRAD scheme for the experimental research or descriptive scheme for the descriptive scientific fields, and contains the following sections: Abstract, Introduction, Material and Methods, Results and Discussion, Conclusion, References, as well as Abstract translated into Serbian (optional) and Acknowledgements (optional).

Review scientific paper is an overview of the latest research in a specific field and has the aim of summarizing, analysing, evaluating or synthesising previously published information, as well as creating new syntheses that also include the results of the author's own research. Review scientific papers should consist of the following sections: Abstract, Introduction, Discussion or Analysis, Conclusion, References and Abstract translated into Serbian (optional) and Acknowledgement (optional).

Preliminary communication refers to a paper that is shorter or has a preliminary character, in which some elements of IMRAD may be omitted, and it is a summary of the results of a completed original research paper or an emerging article (or working paper).

Scientific review, discussion or commentary is a debate on a particular scientific topic, based solely on scientific argumentation, in which the author proves the correctness of a particular criterion of his/her opinion or refutes the findings of other authors.

Presentation of a book, instrument, computer program, case, scientific event and the like is an article in which the author evaluates the correctness/irregularity of a scientific or professional work, criteria, setting or starting point, with particular emphasis on the quality of the evaluated work.

If you cite more than one paper of the same author, the earlier published ones should be cited first, then the latest, while the ones published in the same year should be cited in the alphabetical order according to the titles, e.g., (1995a), (1995b). In case they have no author, the title and the name of the institution takes the place of the author's name.
