Geologia Croatica welcomes original scientific papers dealing with diverse aspects of geology and geological engineering, the history of the Earth, and the physical changes that the Earth has undergone or it is undergoing. The Journal covers a wide spectrum of geology disciplines (palaeontology, stratigraphy, mineralogy, sedimentology, petrology, geochemistry, structural geology, karstology, hydrogeology and engineering geology) including pedogenesis, petroleum geology and environmental geology.

Papers especially concerning the Pannonian Basin, Dinarides, the Adriatic/Mediterranean region, as well as notes and reviews interesting to a wider audience (e.g. review papers, book reviews, and notes) are welcome.


New impact factor for 2020


Dear colleagues,

We are very pleased to inform you that in the category Geology of Web of Science the impact factor of journal Geologia Croatica has grown to 1,290 which is the highest impact factor achieved so far and places us in the Q2 quartile.

We have also advanced 13 positions in the category Earth and Planetary Sciences (miscellaneous) of Scopus database and we still hold our position in Q2 quartile.

We would also like to remind you that Geologia Croatica is a diamond open access journal which is the highest category in open access and retaining copyright by the authors. This category meets all the dissemination standards prescribed by domestic and international tenders for scientific projects. Unlike most high-ranking journals where publishing in open access costs thousands of Euros, we publish articles of up to 16 printed journal pages free of charge.

Of course, such high ranking would not be possible without quality manuscripts, our associated editors and reviewers who improve these manuscripts even further with their knowledge and experience, as well as all of us who, by citing those articles, increase their visibility and the journal’s impact factor.

We look forward to your future manuscripts as well as your citing of articles recently published in our journal.
