Res novae is a new peer-reviewed scientific periodical published by the Catholic Institute. It is published twice a year in electronic and printed form. The magazine is designed interdisciplinary: it covers a wide range of social sciences (law, political science, economics) and humanities (philosophy, history).
Contributions for publication in the Res novae can describe concepts, represent the theoretical findings, or are empirically-analytical. It is expected that the authors demonstrate a high level of knowledge of the issues that are scientifically accurate and methodologically clear. Contributions must show a contribution to the development of the areas they desrcibe.
The purpose of Res novae is to promote an original scientific contribution to current issues in science and promote the use of different methodological approaches. Res novae does not favor any form of methodological approach, but rather encourages the use of interdisciplinary tools of scientific analysis and comparative analysis of established concepts with new ones that are still in the phase of verification. The journal has an ambitious long-term goal to become indexed in the major databases of scientific publications.
The journal is primarily intended for lecturers and researchers associated to the faculties, as well as everybody that demonstrates a good knowledge of the disciplines and has obtained at least a postgraduate university degree (Master's degree) or is in the process of obtaining PhD. Each contribution goes through an anonymous peer-review process, which comprises of domestic and foreign evaluators with the appropriate academic titles.
The journal publishes original scientific and shorter reviews. Original scientific papers bring forth an independent, critical and innovative treatment of selected topics, while reviews critically assess the context of the selected themes having regard to traditional and modern scientific disciplines.
Contributions may be submitted in Slovene or in English. Title, abstract and keywords must be written in both languages.
