ABOUT PSYCHOLOGICAL TOPICS:
Psychological Topics is a Journal published by the Department of Psychology of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Rijeka. The Journal publishes original scientific articles from different fields of psychology authored by researchers from Croatia and abroad.
Based on the proposal of Branko Sremec, The Department of Psychology (then Division for Psychology) started publishing its Journal in 1992. under the title “Godišnjak Zavoda za psihologiju”.
In 1997. the Journal changed its name to “Psychological Topics” (Psihologijske teme). In addition to regular numbers, based on the proposal of Igor Kardum, in 2006. the Journal started publishing special (thematic) issues in English, wherein respectable foreign authors publish their articles. The Journal is cited in renowned international bibliographic databases.
Since 1992. the Journal has been published regularly each year, at first one number per year, from 2005. two numbers per year, and since 2011. three numbers per year.
