Croatian Medical Journals Receive International Recognition
In the past two months, two Croatian medical journals, "Croatian Medical Journal" and "Lijecnicke novine", received important international recognition, which was not given much attention in Croatian media. The co-editor of the Croatian Medical Journal, Dr. Ana Marusic, a regular professor of anatomy at Zagreb's Faculty of Medicine, took over the duty as chairwoman of the Council of Science Editors (CSE) in Austin, Texas. The association that gathers editors from some thousand science magazines around the world, has a goal of educating editors and promoting the standards of editorial and co-editorial work, their rights and responsibilities.
On assuming leadership of the CSE, Marusic said that she would use her mandate to promote the gazette of the association "Science Editor" and to spreading its influence outside the borders of the developed countries. The European Cervical Cancer Association (ECCA) commended "Lijecnicke novine" - the official gazette of the Croatian Medical Chamber - for its adequate, quality and correct reporting on the prevention of cervical cancer in Croatia, with which the paper gave a significant contribution to the health of women in Croatia.
