The area has been undergoing a fundamental change in economic and production patterns following the 1990 changes. Scholarly journals in the post communistic countries were mainly organized and financed by the governmental institutions with the local members of editorial boards, without significant implementation of international standard, mainly published on classical paper technology, without electronic publishing, as well as with closed system of authors and readers.

South East European Journal intends to include members of boards mainly from the countries of this region in order to publish scholarly papers with the Open Access philosophy on the Open Journal Systems platform.
