History

In 1998, immediately after its establishment, Victimology Society of Serbia started the journal on victimisation, human rights and gender, which was named after the Greek goddess of justice Temida. First, inspection copy was published in 1997. Temida is the first and still the only journal dealing with issues of victimisation, human rights and gender in Serbia, but it has also been recognised as such in the region of the former Yugoslavia and even broader. Temida has been published regularly since 1998. From 1998 to 2017 it was published quarterly, while from 2017 it is published three times a year.

After thirteen years of publishing, first bibliography of articles published in Temida was made. Keeping in mind diversity of topics, this bibliography presents a real treasure of works in the field of victimology, human rights and gender. Bibliography was prepared by Vesna Madžarac, Department for Serial Publications of the National Library of Serbia, and Jelena Vukotić, Department for Monographic Publications of the National Library of Serbia. Special bibliography of Temida was conducted de visu; it contains 502 bibliographical references and it encompasses a period from 1998 to 2010 (13 volumes). Bibliography of Temida is available in Serbian at https://www.vds.rs/File/BibliografijaTemida2012.pdf.

During the previous 24 years, 555 academic papers were published in Themida: 472 articles in Serbian and 73 in English. In total, 131 book reviews (57 books written by Serbian authors and 74 books written by foreign authors) and 111 conference reviews, which were organized in the country and abroad, were published. Additionally, a student article, a journal review, three project reviews, a film review and a reward „Andelka Milic“ review were published, too. In total, 402 authors have published their academic papers in Themida, out of which 235 are from Serbia and 167 from abroad

Temida has been in the international DOI system since 2007. It has been indexed in DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journals) since 2010, and in the EBSCO research database since 2013. In 2015 it was included in the new edition of the Web of Science – Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), a new edition of journals that extends the content of the Web of Science and makes it possible searching, finding and quotation of journals that are included in this edition.

In 2016 Temida received the award “Anđelka Milić” for feminist creativity in the field of science and culture, and for the support to that creativity and implementation of feminist ideas in different areas of social life. Temida was awarded for the support to development of knowledge in the field of gender studies in Serbia (theory and research).
