A survey on the Journal of the Serbian Chemical Society – On the occasion of the 80th volume

Olgica Nedić, Aleksandar B Dekanski


Journal of the Serbian Chemical Society (JSCS) is an official journal of the Serbian Chemical Society and this year we are celebrating 85 years of its publishing and the 80th volume. After so many years of publishing, the idea of the Editorial board of the JSCS was to investigate what do authors, reviewers and Sub-editors think about the journal and whether their evaluation and suggestions can help to improve it. Questionnaires were sent to the three investigated groups as an e-mail link. Responses were analyzed and only the most general and the most important data are presented in this article. Grades, comments and suggestions have shown that most of the contributors are satisfied with the present handling and publishing policy of the JSCS, but certain technical aspects should be improved. After thorough inspection of the data, the Editorial Board decided to introduce fully automatic on-line system, to speed-up the peer review process, to improve Instructions to authors and Reviewer’s report form. All these novelties started from March 2015.
