About journal

The journal ” The Policy of National Security ” tends to accumulate contemporary reflections on the influence of politics on the process of building and functioning of the national security system of a modern state.

It originated from the collection of papers named “Serbia”, which was published regularly for four years and primarily dealt with topics from the domain of defence and security policy, as well as security risks and threats. By the decision of the Scientific Council of the Institute for Political Studies, since 2013, this collection has become first a thematic yearbook, and then the journal “The Policy of National Security”.

The editorial aims to analyze and study various aspects of national and international security from a scientific point of view, especially the role of the state and political structures in creating the security environment, especially in the context of the 21st century and the asymmetric security threats to which the modern state is exposed.

The journal is published twice a year.

The deadlines for submission of papers are April 1st and August 1st.

The journal is indexed in the Serbian Citation Index (SCIndeks):
