Starting from the fact that most of the economic progress is based on innovation, Economics-
Innovative and Economic Research Journal has focused primarily on knowledge economy and
innovation. Only unpublished papers, that represent original scientific research, which contribute
to the knowledge economy and innovation, are published in the journal.

The reason is very simple: nothing happens in the world economy without being fundamentally
connected with technological changes. Innovation is a key driving force that accelerates all kinds
of social changes. Innovations and changes within the fourth industrial revolution are the most
famous in the world of new technologies that shape the global economic and technological
structure, international and local markets, as well as the entire socio-cultural system.

However, this fact is not important only for the information, communication, and data processing
field. Changes and innovations that come from technologies of clean energy, better quality and
healthier food, preservation of human health, as well as improving the quality of people's lives are
also very important. In addition, those changes and innovations that come from technologies for
the protection of natural resources (water protection, forestry, green infrastructure, irrigation, and
air protection) are modern, dynamic and innovative, such as information communication
technologies. Innovation and new technologies play an equally important role in the complex of
everything that makes up "new economy" such as: sport, music, creative and entertainment
industries, social institutions and religious organizations, non-governmental organizations, and
trade unions.

This journal covers the most consequences that technological change brings to the economy and
society, but innovations are not reserved only for technology. Innovations can have social, media,
cultural and socio-psychological character, and when they are not just strictly a product of
information technology.

One of the projects of the Journal and the Institute is the annual international scientific
conference, usually held in May, focused on the topic of "New Economy"
with the aim to highlight positive impact of
modern technologies on the economy and society.

The general approach that we found to be legitimate and provocative enough for authors, readers
and participants in our conferences is based on the thesis that innovation is eternal, multi-layered,
unpredictable, and comprehensive in its economic, technological and cultural activities. Linking
research and analysis of the impact of innovation, technological change and consequent structural
changes in society, is a key "ecological niche" of our journal. For now, the readers and authors of
the journal recognize that, and the original scientific-professional profile, we are striving for, is
being formed.

Our scientific and professional orientation has proven to be correct. This is confirmed by the fact
that we have become globally available journal. We cooperate with all continents and regions in
the world. The interest in reading and publishing in our journal stems from accelerating social
changes. Crisis innovations and accelerated structural changes have become a part of new reality

and "new normality" in the years of global or regional recessions, and the current Covid-19
pandemic conditions.

We are facing a period of new challenges in which we expect a lot from innovation, from more
effective vaccines, from new public health systems and lifestyles, and from the invention of some
"now normality". Our modest contribution to that perception will be considered.
