Open Journals

The COAS Open Journals, as international multi-disciplinary peer-reviewed online open access academic journals, provide platforms for the research manuscripts in different scientific disciplines. The journals welcome original theoretical works and empirical investigations. The manuscripts may represent a variety of theoretical perspectives and different methodological approaches.

The articles in the COAS journals are published in Open Access mode, and they are available freely and immediately worldwide.

The COAS journals accept the following types of manuscripts: (1) research articles - presenting the results of primary scientific research and typically following the format of a traditional research paper, in a form of complete descriptions of current original research findings; (2) review articles - presenting conceptual advances and integration of a field or topic, as a synthesis of the results of many different articles on a particular topic, in a form of a coherent narrative about the state in chosen field; (3) conference proceedings.

The COAS journals also invite researchers to submit proposals for special (or thematic) issues, which also can involve papers from a conference. Those responsible for an approved proposal may be invited to take on the role of guest editors.
