Early Life of New Croatian Online Journal: Acta Stomatologica Croatica (Online)
Scientific information that is applicable in biomedical practice and the speed of its publication has dramatically increased in the onset of online journals. The aim of this paper is to analyze the use of the e-version of the scientific journal Acta Stomatologica Croatica (ASCRO), accessible at www.ascro.net, during the period from March to November 2006, i. e. its first year of e-publication. For the analysis of the e-journal we used a computer program Webalizer 2.01, authored by Bradford L. Barett. We analyzed the following parameters: number of daily visits, maximal number of daily visits, number of monthly visits, number of unique IP addresses (Internet protocol addresses) that have accessed the website, hours of maximal access during the day, distribution of visitors regarding the country of origin, and most read articles. Although the presented results of the life of the ASCRO e-journal are related to the observed time period of only six months, they are promising. The steady rise in the presented data is a sure indicator of the sincere work of the Editorial office, leading to a constant increase in the number of readers.
