In the period 1969–1979 the journal entitled Prilozi, Oddelenie za prirodno-matematički nauki, (Contributions, Section of Natural Sciences and Mathematics) was published by the Macedonian Academy of Sciences and Arts.
From 1980 up to 2012 the journal split into Prilozi, Oddelenie za matematičko-tehnički nauki, MANU (Contributions, Section of Mathematical and Technical Sciences, MASA), and Prilozi, Oddelenie za biološki i medicinski nauki, MANU (Contributions, Section of Biological and Medical Science, MASA).
Recently, a separate Section of Natural, Mathematical and Biotechnical Sciences has been established at the Macedonian Academy of Sciences and Arts. It has been arranged that Prilozi/Contributions is to be the journal of the Section of Natural, Mathematical and Biotechnical Sciences and as of 2013 the journal will be published in a new design in A4 format, twice a year. The Local (National) Editorial Board has been expanded with new members, becoming an International Editorial Board.The journal publishes original scientific papers, short communications, reviews, professional papers and educational papers from all fields of:
This journal also publishes, continuously or occasionally, the bibliographies of the members of the Macedonian Academy of Sciences and Arts, book reviews, reports on meetings, information on future meetings, important events and dates, and various headings which contribute to the development of the corresponding scientific field.
The original scientific papers report unpublished results of completed original scientific research, whereas the short communications should contain completed but briefly presented results of original scientific research.
The reviews are submitted at the invitation of the Editorial Board. They should be critical surveys of an area in which preferably the author himself is active.
Professional papers report on useful practical results that are not original but help the results of the original scientific research to be adopted into scientific and production use.
Educational papers report on the activities in the laboratory and classroom and the needs of the community of educators in all mentioned fields.
Papers received by the Editorial Board undergo peer review by two anonymous referees (at least one from abroad). The journal is equally opened to foreign and to domestic authors.
Prilozi/Contributions is an open access journal and its content is freely available to the public in order to achieve a greater global exchange of knowledge. The electronic version of the journal is accessible on the MANU/MASA website: http://www.manu.edu.mk/contributions/NMBSci.
