Purpose. The main objective of this paper is to explore the key bibliometric characteristics of the journal Ethnologica Dalmatica, based on editorial and publishing aspects, formal attributes of articles, and the profile of authors whose works were published from 1992 to 2022.
Approach/Methodology/Design. The initial sample for analysis comprised the bibliography of all issues/volumes of the journal published in that period. Bibliometric analysis was conducted on a selected sample of 229 papers, which were categorized according to the classification used in this journal.
Results. The research results indicated the prevalence of scientific papers over professional and other categories of papers. The most common publications are original scientific papers, followed by preliminary reports and professional papers. The rest of the works constitute a smaller proportion. The total extent of analyzed articles amounted to 4,149 pages, averaging 160 pages per volume, with the average article length being 19 pages. In the observed period, female authors were more prevalent than male authors. The journal predominantly features single-author papers, indicating a lack of collaborative efforts among authors. With respect to the types of institutions the authors are affiliated with, cultural institutions are the most represented ones, followed by academic and scientific-research institutions, among others. The journal mainly attracted contributions from researchers from Split and Dalmatia, but also others from across Croatia, which suggests that, besides its local or regional significance, the journal holds importance at the national level as well.
Practical application. This analysis can serve as a valuable indicator of the journal’s achievements, and also assist the editorial team in recognizing strengths to be encouraged and potential shortcomings to be avoided.
Originality/Value. The value of the paper lies in the fact that, for the first time, a comprehensive bibliometric analysis of an individual Croatian journal in the field of ethnology and cultural anthropology has been conducted. The results of this analysis can be used for future research on journals (individual or comparative) in this field.
