FAQ

How do I get a UDC number?

UDC (Universal Decimal Classification) is an international decimal classification system that provides a consistent and gradual indexing of scientific and subject fields to the corresponding subfields. It is a tool that numerically and in universally recognizable way shows a subject or a scientific field that corresponds to author's work. To get the UDC number, you should contact the librarian at your institution (university / institute). If your institution does not have a library, please contact the librarian at the University Library "Svetozar Markovic".

How do I choose a "scientific field" and "scientific subfield"?

To determine the scientific field and a subfield, you can take a look at the Rules of professional, academic and scientific qualifications (Službeni glasnik RS, 30/2007, 112/2008, 72/2009, 81/2010, 39/2011 and 54/2011) which was delivered by the National Council for Higher Education.
