28. 09. 2018.

Dear colleagues,

Since the groundbreaking studies of Sir Francis Galton, behavioral genetics research has contributed enormously to our understanding of psychological phenomena in general, and in particularly of the lifespan development of psychological traits. It is a great pleasure and honor for me to collaborate with the members of the Editorial Board, and work as the international “co-editor” for the special issue of Primenjena psihologija. The proposed issue intends to publish papers focused on behavioral genetics research in psychology. As a first step, I kindly invite you to submit papers to this journal, related to the topic of the special issue.

The papers may cover any aspect of the genetic basis of psychological traits and phenomena. This includes, but is not limited to, twin and family studies, adoption studies, and molecular genetic studies.

This Special issue is planned to be published in December 2018. The authors are requested to submit their papers electronically by using the web site For all necessary information regarding the manuscript preparation please check the Author Guidelines section.
