Macroregional centers in function of regional development of Serbia
Glasnik Srpskog Geografskog Dru?tva , 2009, DOI: 10.2298/gsgd0903023z
Abstract: Beside the dominance of Belgrade in regional development of Serbia and marginal role of medium sized cities, macroregional centers were for a long time important carriers of economic development and a driving force of the overall prosperity. The objective of this work is to indicate the role of macroregional centers in the regional development of Serbia through their analysis and comparison of the results with the average values on the state level. Their existence represents a precondition for decentralization of Serbia. .
Comparative analyses of regional politics of the European Union and Serbia
Glasnik Srpskog Geografskog Dru?tva , 2007, DOI: 10.2298/gsgd0701193z
Abstract: The aim of this article is to show through the comparative analysis, the basic characteristics of regional policy, or the policy of support to the development of less developed areas in our country compared to the regional policy of European Union, with an accent on the instruments for implementation of that policy. Without putting accent on different starting positions for those two development policies, what is for sure the main reason of differences in realized results, the experiences of European Union can be in any case useful and instructive for Serbia as a country with a task of rationalization and establishment of an effective regional policy being a necessity in the forthcoming period.

Glasnik Srpskog Geografskog Dru?tva , 2011, DOI: 10.2298/gsgd1104089t
Abstract: The paper covers presentation of ways of international cooperation of Danube region on the territory of Republic of Serbia and its spatial integration levels of the immediate and wider environment (cross-border or trans-border aspect of cooperation, transnational cooperation and interregional cooperation). Danube region is space with the most active current integration processes, which take place under the initiative of the European Union and the definition of European instruments supporting cooperation of states along the Danube River flow, as well as more specific territorial entities that are directly related to the river. In addition to European strategies and programs, the cooperation includes cross-border cooperation activities of Serbia based on resolving socio-economic problems, issues related to infrastructure, environmental protection and other areas of cooperation that include spaces Euroregional Association. The grounds for the implementation of planned measures for further Danube region development also include functional connections on regional and local level within the territory of the Republic of Serbia.
Strategy as planning document

Glasnik Srpskog Geografskog Dru?tva , 2006, DOI: 10.2298/gsgd0601203z
Abstract: The need for planning, as a process through which the future can be influenced to a certain extent, gave a new form of this activity, that has characteristics of generalization, flexibility and adaptability in time and in space which it refers to. That is strategic planning, which tends to coordinate the variety of development components and has for its aim successful implementation based on planning objectives. In the practice of spatial planning in Serbia, important differences can be recognized in perception of the term "strategy" as a planning document, and in consequence differences in perception of its form, content and aim. In that sense, this paper is dedicated to the interpretation of different approaches in strategic spatial planning in Serbia and it points out strengths and weaknesses of those approaches.
Regional types in Serbia and their territorial inconsistency

Glasnik Srpskog Geografskog Dru?tva , 2010, DOI: 10.2298/gsgd1002151z
Abstract: Regionalization of Serbia, as an instruments whose adequate use would contribute to a decrease in interregional differences in development of certain parts, represents a complex task, which is only to some extent finished by adopting bigger territorial parts in Serbia. This work is made for the purpose of presenting the problems with regional planning process deriving from inconsistency which exists between administrative territorial organization into districts of the Republic of Serbia and functional areas of regional centers defined by The Spatial Plan of the Republic of Serbia, issued in 1996, then functional urban areas presented in The Strategy of Spatial Development of the Republic of Serbia in 2009-2013-2020 and in The Draft Law of Spatial Plan of the Republic of Serbia in 2010-2014-2021. Moreover, the work compares the above mentioned spatial areas with planned regions, for which the drawing up of regional spatial plans is scheduled, namely with statistical macroregions, whose defining is one of the recently adopted decisions in the Republic of Serbia. The aim of pointing out to the above mentioned inconsistency in so far used concepts of regionalization, is to contribute to the quality of regional planning of development, as well as to finding solutions which would refer to establishing borders of smaller, meso-regional totalities, and also to the determination of authorities of both middle levels of administration in our country. .
Rules for Evaluation of Scientific Results Published in Scientific Journals

International Scientific Journal of Management Information Systems , 2012,
Abstract: This looks into some issues appearing in scientific journals evaluation based on their impact factor (IF). An analysis of the publicly available data on journals’ IFs results in finding that there exist a significant number of journals publication years missing their IF data. Therefore, this article proposes the IF based rules enabling the determination of the journal’s category for the publication years with no IF available. Application of the proposed rules is illustrated through the example of the scientific fields of mathematics, computer science and mechanics. Finally, the examples of the evaluation completed by applying the proposed rules are given. Application of the proposed rules is automated within the CRIS system of the University of Novi Sad (CRIS UNS) using the data available in the database of this system.
Elevated plasma levels of TGF-beta1 in patients with locally advanced breast cancer related to other clinical stages

Archive of Oncology , 2003, DOI: 10.2298/aoo0303131t
Abstract: Background: The application of plasma tumor markers is mainly during the follow-up of cancer patients and especially in monitoring of advanced disease. These biomarkers do not require surgical intervention and provide relatively simple monitoring at any time during the disease course. TGF-beta1 is a pluripotent cytokine, with diverse effects in normal physiology and a role in both normal mammary gland development and progression of breast cancer. In early stages of breast carcinomas TGF-beta1 acts as tumor suppressor, while in later stages, when tumor cells become resistant to growth inhibition by TGF-beta1, it acts as tumor promoter. For that reason, the aim of this study was to assess the stage-related TGF-beta1 elevation in circulation of breast cancer patients, during disease progression. Methods: We analyzed 52 breast cancer patients of different stages (I/II, III, IV) and 36 healthy donors. TGF-beta1 levels were determined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA, R&D). Results Although there was no increase in plasma TGF-beta1 in stage I/II patients (n =10, median value = 0.89 ng/ml), statistically significant elevation of plasma TGF-beta1 was found in locally advanced breast cancer (stage III, n = 9, median value = 2.30 ng/ml) and also in metastatic breast cancer (stage IV, n = 33, median value = 2.46 ng/ml) in relation to healthy donors and stage I/II. Conclusion: This elevation of plasma TGF-beta1 in locally advanced breast cancer is probably the result of increased tumor mass and tumor-stromal interactions in this stage, as well as a possible cause of greater metastatic potential of tumor cells which lead to metastatic breast cancer. Prognostic role of TGF-beta1 is not fully understood, but from these results we could say that it could be a marker for monitoring patients disease course, as well as for understating the biology of breast cancer.
Comparison of real development levels of countries: Genesis and perspectives

Abstract: Comparison of levels of development among countries is usually done by reducing values in national currencies with a common denominator, using the official exchange rate. Because of its unreality, the values calculated in this way do not illustrate real relations between compared countries. That brings about the launching of the UN International Comparison Project (latter Programme) with two fold aims: developing a method for international comparison of real domestic product which could be applied to a number of very heterogeneous countries, and the comparison of growing number of very different countries. Until now six phases of comparisons are finished. Taking into consideration problems that appeared in the realization of the VI ICP phase as well as quality improvement proposals, a decision has been made to launch a new, global round for 2003-2006. Comparison will cover 150 countries (the widest coverage ever). This will give global character to the comparison, which was the end cause of the ICP.

Abstract: Background/Aim. Epidemiological studies of blindness in a working age population require a precise definition of the true connection of uveitis and visual damage. Since most patients with more severe types of uveitis are hospitalized in tertiary referral uveitis service, our aim was to determine whether age, sex and age of onset of uveitis, as well as duration of visual loss and its causes influence the degree of visual damage in patients with different types of uveitis. Methods. The data were collected from medical records of 237 patients at the Department for Uveitis of the Institute for Eye Diseases in Belgrade over a three-year period (March 2005 to March 2008). Results. Visual acuity reduction (≤ 0.3) was found in 161/237 (67.9%) patients, 85 of whom had visual acuity of ≤ 0.1 later. Working age patients (up to 60 years of age) most often suffered from uveitis (173/237; 73%). The highest number of patients with visual loss was in the group suffering from panuveitis (77/94; 81.91%). The age of onset of uveitis and sex have no statistically significant influence on visual loss. The most common causes of visual loss (34/161; 21.1%) were cystoid macular oedema (CMO) (43/161; 26.7%), cataract (28/161; 17.39%) and combination of CMO and cataract. Conclusion. The risk factors for severe visual loss (≤ 0.1) are panuveitis, bilateral inflammation, prolonged visual reduction and a significant number of relapses. The main causes of visual loss in 65.2% of our patients were CMO and cataract.
