Novosti (Serbian Cyrillic: Новости, lit. The News) is a Croatian weekly magazine based in Zagreb. It is published by the Serb National Council (SNV), the main state-funded body concerned with promoting human rights and dealing with issues related to the ethnic identity and the participation of Serbs of Croatia in the Croatian society at large. The organization was established in July 1997 in Zagreb, based on the provisions granting the right to self-government for Serbs in Croatia as set in the Erdut Agreement.
The magazine, billed as an "independent Serbian weekly" (samostalni srpski tjednik), describes its editorial policy as being primarily concerned with covering general news and publishing "critical writing about all the relevant political, social and cultural developments in Croatia". It also deals with issues related to the Serb community in Croatia and the development of civil society.
The Novosti weekly was originally launched by SNV in December 1999 in broadsheet format as a weekly publication primarily concerned with minority politics related to Serbs of Croatia. Since its first issue the magazine adopted a policy of linguistic pluralism and featured articles written in Croatian and Serbian, and offered a mix of sections printed in Latin and Cyrillic scripts. However, its circulation was limited to subscribers and was not widely available in newsstands for the first ten years of its existence.
In late 2009 the magazine underwent an extensive makeover in an effort to transform into a weekly magazine which would also appeal to the mainstream public, with more space dedicated to commentary pieces and coverage of nationally significant political and cultural events, as well as investigative journalism. To that extent, the magazine hired a number of prominent columnists and intellectuals as commentators, including Viktor Ivančić (formerly of Feral Tribune), Vladimir Arsenijević and Igor Mandić, and was for the first time made available for purchase at newsstands.
As of December 2009 its circulation is 8,000.
