Public Sector Economics is a scientific journal published by the Institute of Public Finance, which seeks theoretical, empirical and policy-oriented contributions analysing the role and functioning of the public sector at macroeconomic, sectoral and microeconomic levels, in both advanced and emerging market economies. The Editorial Board accepts for consideration exclusively previously unpublished scientific papers.
Born in 1976 under the name of Financijska praksa and published in Croatian, it came of age in 1995, when it was renamed Financijska teorija i praksa. From 2005 it was published in both Croatian and in English, and since 2010 has appeared only in English as Financial Theory and Practice. On the journal’s attainment of full maturity, in 2017 the name was changed to Public Sector Economics.
