In September 2003, The Faculty of Administration published the first
issue of Uprava/Administration, an international journal fot theory
The readers of the journal are students, public sector employees and
the wider public in Slovenia and abroad. Since 2009, the journal is
indexed and abstracted in several bibliographic databases such as
EGPA PA@BABEL, ECONLIT, IBSS, IPSA, CSA PAIS International, Proquest,
CSA WPSA and EBSO. Our mayor plan is to include it to Web of Science
The Uprava/Administration journal should become the leading Slovene
interdisciplinary scientific periodical for administration studies.
A field as wide and as professionally diverse as administration
studies provides plenty of opportunity for identifying theoretical
and practical issues and finding solutions to them. The public
administration system in Slovenia has undergone enormous changes in
recent years, however, reforms are not completed yet. The Slovene
public administration should become an administration a modern,
democratic European country needs. That is why it is essential that
experts have a decisive influence on its development, which includes
publishing articles in the journal.
It is encouraging that along with the established experts from the
field of administration students, young researchers and graduates
contribute to the Uprava/Administration journal. Articles by foreign
authors dealing with current theoretical issues or practical
solutions in their countries are particularly valuable. All of this
should lead to a more professional, better organised, more efficient,
and above all, internationally comparable administration in Slovenia.
