Abstract

After the beginning of the year 2007, the number of Croatian scientific journals indexed in bibliographical and citation database Web of Science (WoS) has rapidly increased, and among them the number of Croatian social sciences (SS) and arts and humanities (A&H) journals as well. In this paper, the (inter)national orientation of Croatian social sciences (SS) and arts and humanities (A&H) journals indexed in the period 2008-2010 in the Web of Science (WoS) database was analyzed. The analysis was conducted via language of the journal title and published papers, national distribution of authors and co-authorship structure, as well as via the INO indicator. For the purpose of this analysis, SS journals were divided into 2 groups – SS journals related to medicine and health (SSM) and other SS journals (SSO), while A&H journals were observed as one group (AH). Results of the analysis showed that Croatian SSM journals are the most internationally oriented among analyzed groups of journals according to all indicators, while the SSO journals have the strongest national orientation. However, all three analyzed groups of journals are still the most attractive first for Croatian authors, and than to authors from region (SSO, SSM) and top 20 countries in the world sciences (AH).
