Notes for Contributors


The editorial board of the journal welcomes studies on economic, regional and social issues in Hungarian and in English language. Our journal was launched in 2004. It is published four times a year from 2021 (of which once in English and three times in Hungarian). We are waiting for studies, essays and book reviews submitted for the first publication only. The studies are rated by two double-blind reviewers in each case. 

Aims and Scope

Our journal, "Strategic Issues of Northern Hungary ECONOMY-REGION-SOCIETY " is published four times a year (three times in Hungarian language and one is in English language) and its intention is twofold. First one: to ensure wider publicity for studies on analyzing social and economic situation, development opportunities, ways of development in the North-Hungarian region and northern part of the Charpatian Basin. Second one: to introduce scientific and professional regional workshops in the field of regional development, town planning, urban and regional economic researches.

The papers are reviewed before publication, we use a double-blind peer review process! The journal is both, printed and electronically (open-access).
