Since 2000, the journal TURIZAM has been published in the English language under the title TOURISM – An International Interdisciplinary Journal. This paper presents the content analysis of 308 scientific articles published in the twelve volumes of this journal (in the period from 2000 to 2011). The analysis includes data on the authors, key words, and categories of the CST assigned to each article during expert analysis. The objectives of the study were twofold: 1) to examine the connotations of the term "international" in the journal's title and 2) to examine the topical areas that attracted the authors of the scientific papers; the connotations of the term "interdisciplinary" in the journal's title. The results of this analysis will be used to extend the classification scheme CST. For the purpose of identifying trends, this analysis is divided into four periods: 2000 - 2002; 2003 - 2005; 2006 - 2008, and 2009 - 2011.
