Welcome to the newest issue of the MEST Journal!
Last year we have started to use a new platform for publishing our journal, Open Journal System (OJS). All our previous issues we republished on it. So, we have two versions of our journal now. This will be continued in this year, also, to give our authors and readers enough time to adopt. The journal is changing its shape, but it remains to follow its mission. At the end of 2017, founders of the Faculty of Business and Law have founded the new faculty, the Faculty of Information Technology, which will work in the frame of the "Union – Nikola Tesla" University in Belgrade. Therefore, it is to expect more articles in the IT in the future.
The MEST Journal is registered in DOI system by CrossRef with DOI 10.12709/issn.2334-7058. All articles published in this issue, as well as in the previous issues of the MEST Journal, have their own DOIs. The MEST Journal is registered in doiSerbia of the National Library of Serbia, COBIB.SR, Matica Srpska Library, COBISS.SR, Google Scholar, CrossRef, OALIB, EleCas base of KoBSON, the Index Copernicus ICI Journals Master List, Scilit, ROAD, ERIH PLUS, and in the ResearchBib (IF: 2017 Evaluation Pending).
We keep the practice that articles, that have undergone peer review, and will be published in the next issues, we make available to readers in the form of preview - early reading.
The focal point of the journal remained at international level, with the view on matters from a global perspective. However, due to their importance, in this issue have been published some papers relating to some specific local events.
This issue is published online and in print. In this issue, fifteen of submitted papers were published, of which four were classified in the group of research scientific papers, and nine in the group of the scientific review articles. There is also one scientific discussion, and one position paper published. Most of the articles is multidisciplinary. However, five of them can be predominantly classified to the field of management, four to the group of society politics, three to the group of economics, two to IT, and one to the group of education.
We follow the mission and vision of the journal, and we help authors to publish their works and present their achievements in the most convenient way. However, we point out that the editors do not censor the works that we publish, as well as the published works, can contain and/or proclaim views that could differ from the views of the editorial board. We check articles on plagiarism, but we are not able to guarantee the accuracy of the data published in scientific and professional works of our authors. We believe that our authors are honorable and publish only their original works with really achieved results. For the quality of papers that we publish, we thank the authors and reviewers who did their job well and conscientiously.
