Aims and Scope

The journal Tokovi istorije originated from a periodical publication of the Institute for the History of Labour Movement in Serbia – Tokovi revolucije. Under this name, the collection was first published in 1967 and was released annually until 1989. From 1990 to 1993 the journal published by the Institute for Recent History of Serbia was called Tokovi. The present structure of the journal was established in 1993. It was renamed to Tokovi istorije and gained a new format, content, and style.
