Journals of Natural History in Slovenia

I tried to make a compilation of Slovenian journals of Natural History. In almost all you can publish in English. But the journals have mainly articles in Slovene (most have slovene summary, except for Svet Ptice and Proteus.).

This scientific journal publishes mainly articles with a historical and social (e.g. multi-cultural and multi-ethnic relations) and a natural science perspective (e.g. conservation, ecology and biology) in the regions of the three neighbouring countries around the Northern Adriatic coast. Old issues with pdf's can be found here.
