Abstracts
The purpose of this research is to explore the composition, scholarly recognition and possible contribution of international editorial board members (EBMs) of Croatian social sciences and humanities (SSH) jour-nals to their quality and visibility. The composition of the editorial boards was analysed on a sample of 676 international EBMs from 78 Croatian journals according to their country of origin. International EBMs come from 49 countries. Countries with the largest number of EBMs make up three groups of nations: ex-Yugoslav countries (Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) and Serbia), neighbouring European countries (Aus-tria, Italy and Hungary) and a set of large countries (USA, UK, Germany and the Netherlands). Scholarly recognition for each EBM has been ana-lysed on the number of published papers, and their h-index in Scopus, number of papers in their parent journal and the citation count, as well as the influence of these papers on the SJR ( Scimago Journal Ranking) journal indicator. Comparative result analyses were performed on two sets of journals – those indexed in Scopus, and a non-Scopus one. On average, Croatian Scopus journals had more international EBMs and their productivity and h-index differ greatly from the same indicators in non-Scopus journals. Obtained result shows that generally, members of international editorial boards have not been recognized as exceptionally distinguished experts in most parent journals. Additionally, publishing contributions to parent journals and the citation count of those published papers do not have a positive effect on the parent journals. To obtain a more comprehensive picture, bibliometric indicators should be comple-mented by quality indicators, interviews and peer review analyses.
