CJE cover

Croatian Journal of Education (CJE) is an international peer-reviewed academic journal intended for scientists from all fields of education and related sciences. CJE accepts for publication only scientific research papers which are original primary publications, i.e. papers which have not been previously published in any journal (previous publication in Conference Proceedings has to be specified). Thus, having been accepted by reviewers, the papers published in the journal contribute to the scientific community.
Croatian Journal of Education publishes research and professional papers which directly or indirectly reflect the topics related to academic theoretical and applied disciplines both in Croatia and abroad. The editorial board aims for CJE to be a place where scientists from different disciplines, but with studies that are closely related to education, will be able to publish the results of their scientific research as well as professional and theoretical studies.

CJE uses the Harvard system of reference (Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th ed., 2010). Unless the referencing is in accordance with the APA style, the paper will be returned to the author prior to the reviewing procedure.
The paper should include references and sources on the basis of which it was written, without bullets or numbering and with 1.0 indentation (justified alignment).

When other people’s syntagms, ideas, data, terms, etc. are cited, the source should be given in the text and not in the footnotes.
References are given in brackets alphabetically and should contain the author’s surname, year of publication and, in the case of a verbatim quotation, the page number (e.g. Rossi & Cassidy, 1999, p. 24; Vilke, 1993, p. 23)).

If the work cited has more than two authors, cite all authors the first time the reference occurs (Prskalo, I., Nedić, A., Sporiš, G., & Badrić, M., 2007, p. 76) and in subsequent citations, include only the surname of the first author followed by et al. and the year of publication (e.g. Pastuović et al., 2003, p. 35).
When paraphrasing, the author’s name is written and the year of publication is given in brackets (e.g. Horvat (2001) claims that; Zarevski and Tominac (2008) maintain…).

The reference list at the end of the paper (References) should include full information about all the works that are referred to in the paper, in alphabetical order according to the author’s surname (the works of the same author should be listed chronologically), in Latin alphabet.

The titles in the reference list need to be given in the language of the original, and if they are translated into English the English translation should be given in square brackets [].
When electronic sources are referenced, the date of retrieval has to be stated.
