“Croatica” is a peer reviwed academic journal which publishes research articles on Croatian language, literature and culture as well as essays and reviews of recent publications in these fields.
“Croatica” is a successor of an earlier journal (1970–2000) which bore the same name and was dedicated to the study of Croatian literature, as well as its reinstated version titled “Nova Croatica” (2007–2012).
“Croatica” (1970) was founded by the Institute for Literature at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences (University of Zagreb) and the Institute for Literature and Theatre Studies at the Yugoslav Academy of Sciences and Arts (today Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts). The founder of “Nova Croatica” (2007–2012) and the new series of “Croatica” (2013–) is the Department for Croatian Language and Literature at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences (University of Zagreb).
According to best academic practices and journal criteria, all research articles published by “Croatica” are initially evaluated by the journal’s editors and then forwarded to two independent reviewers for two separate blind peer reviews. If an agreement is not reached by the initial two reviewers, the submission is sent to a third reviewer. The final decision on the article’s publication is made by the journal’s editorial board.
