Upute autorima

This should be followed a single blank line and the abstract.
  2. The abstract (in Croatian) should be between 100 and 250 words, and should include a short summary of the manuscript which clearly shows its purpose, the description of the research method and the results, and the conclusion (the word ‘Sažetak’ should be in bold, regular script, 12pt. The rest of the text should be in italics, regular script, 12pt, justified).
  3. Keywords (in Croatian) (3-6 words) which are important for quick identification and classification of the manuscript content are listed below the abstract (the words ‘Ključne riječi’ should be in bold, regular script, 12pt. The rest of the text should be in italics, regular script, 12pt, justified).

  6. Words in foreign languages – are written in parentheses and italics; e.g. (engl. Software), (ger. Netzwerk)
  7. Tables and figures (tables, pictures, photographs, drawings, and diagrams) should be prepared for black and white print (avoid shadowing, colors, etc.). The size and complexity should be adjusted to the format of the Journal (A4) in order for all the elements to be clearly visible. The tables and figures should be numbered without a period and the number and captions should be written above the content. The original source of the content should be written below it.

Example: Image 1 The display of tourism offer...     

When referring to tables and figures in the text, a cardinal number in parentheses should be used (image 1) (table 1). The same data should not be expressed in two or more forms: table and graph.

  1. Citations (referring to other texts, quoting papers) should be listed in the following way: a citation should be listed in the text, and not in the footnotes.

Citations should be in parentheses and should include the author's surname, the year of publication and in case of quotation, page number.

For example:

1) ONE AUTHOR – Business ethics consists of morally appropriate actions of a certain profession which refers to individuals (Krkač, 2007).

2) TWO OR THREE AUTHORS – Five principles of ethical power are: purpose, pride, patience, persistence and perspective (Blanchard and Peale, 1990).

3) MORE THAN 3 AUTHORS – After studying the works of other researchers who dealt with the existing problem, data collection and research instrument creation are initiated (Gutić et al., 2011).

4) THE SURNAME(S) OF THE AUTHOR(S) AS PART OF THE SENTENCE – According to Salamon and Anheier (1996) that sector includes a set of organizations with these five important characteristics...

5) SECONDARY SOURCES – use „as cited in“ – For authors who deal with this matter in Croatia sports tourism means „a special form of tourism with the prevailing amount of sport motifs for traveling and staying in certain tourist places and centers“ (Vukonić and Čavlek, 2001, as cited in Bartoluci et al., 2007).

6) QUOTE – „The beginning of modern tourism in Međimurje dates back to February 8th 1964, when Turističko društvo was founded in Čakovec. The president of the initiative board and the first elected president of the society was Đuro Benko” (Kalšan, 2006, p. 403).

All the citations in the text should be written as if mentioned for the first time, that is “ibid”, “op cit.” etc. should not be used. It is recommended that authors use notes only for commenting or complementing the main text. 

  1. References that are listed at the end of the manuscript should include complete information on all the sources that are mentioned in the citations. The sources are arranged in alphabetical order by the authors’ surnames and in chronological order in case more than one work of the same author was used. If several authors with the same year of publication are used as references, letters (a, b, c) should be added after the year of publication. There should be one list for all references (books, articles, internet sources, etc.).
