Croatian Scientific Program: Projects and Initiatives

Croatian Scientific Portal combines, in one place, all information about Croatian scientists, their papers and research projects, Croatian magazines and scientific instruments, all with an aim of providing better interconnection between scientists as well as promotion and popularization of science in Croatia. The project started at the end of the year 2006 with the support by the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports, and it was led by Mrs. Jadranka Stojanovski from the Rudjer Boskovic Institute. For the past two years the portal has grown into an indispensable source of relevant information about science and it averaged more than 20.000 visits per day! Croatian Scientific Portal provides all relevant information both, in Croatian and English language and by doing so Portal continues to promote Croatian science in the county and abroad.
Croatian Scientific Portal Includes Severeal Informational Services:
Digital repository CROSBI has been collecting bibliographic data of the publications written by Croatian researchers since 1996. The repository currently has over 213.000 bibliographic records with an average of 20.000 records per year. CROSBI serves also as a central open access (OA) repository for more than 5.000 publications. CROSBI records are assigned to the unique identifier of a researcher, institution, research project, and subject field, which assures rich searching and browsing possibilities.
Who's Who in Science in Croatia provides biographies and link to the bibliographies extracted from CROSBI of Croatian scientists in the areas of business, law, science, medicine, the arts, government, entertainment and more. Project unifies in one place structured data about Croatian scientists. The information about more than 6.000 Croatian scientists is available at the present. The main goal of the project is to promote Croatian scientists in the country and abroad, and to improve communication and information exchange between scientists themselves.
Croatian Scientific Magazines Portal was built in the year 2006 in cooperation with SRCE and Croatian informational and documentation society (HIDD). HRAČAK offers access to 168 digital versions of Croatian scientific and professional magazines, which follow the initiative of Open Access and support meta-data exchange according to OAI PMH Protocol (Protocol for Metadata Harvesting). Primary objective of this project is to provide publishers with reliable network tool for creation of e-magazines. Currently HAMSTER holds more than 28.000 articles with full-text which are regularly downloaded by other thematic and interdisciplinary OA repositories (OAlster, Base, Google Scholar, Scopus).
Interactive database of scientific equipment owned by Croatian research and higher education institutions with the purpose of improving usage and cooperation between scientists. Šestar has been published recently and is still in testing phase.
