Acta Stomatologica Croatica 1987-2017: Online Bibliography

Introduction

The journal Acta stomatologica Croatica has been published continously since 1966 in one volume with four issues yearly. From the very begining Acta was being published by the School of Dental Medicine in Zagreb and the Croatian Dental Society of the Croatian Medical Association. By its quality the journal contributes to the good reputation of the dental profession nationwide, as well as to the reputation of Croatian dentistry worldwide. Since 1998 the articles are being published bilingual (in Croatian and English), and the journal has become more accessible to the worldwide scientific community. The concept of the journal has varied throughout the years. Editorials, original scientific papers, preliminary communications, reviews, professional papers, and case reports included in this bibliography have been peer-reviewed. Other contributions containing information of permanent significance to the dental profession, such as congress summaries, professional information of interest, historic overviews, and in memoriam are also included. The first 20 years of the journal have been adequately marked and summarized by the supplement Bibliography (PDF, 22MB) in 1986. Therefore, the Editorial board has decided to publish the second bibliography of Acta stomatologica Croatica for the period from 1987 until 2006 in 40th volume, 4th issue of the journal. In order to make the Bibliography accessible to everyone, an online version has been created and will be updated countinously.
