The following international journal, published in Iran, dedicated its issue Volume 2, Number 2, 2008 to academician Josip Pečarić.
This issue of the Banach Journal of Mathematical Analysis is dedicated to Academician Josip E. Pečarić. He is the author or co-author of more than 700 scientific articles as well as 16 books in mathematics. He is one of the leading world experts in the theory of inequalities. The "Mond-Pečarić method" and many inequalities carry his name. He was awarded with the State Award in Sciences in 1997 and was decorated in 1999 with the Order of Danica Hrvatska (Croatian Star) with the effigy of Ruder Bošković (the highest order for science in Croatia).
Introduction from the article
Academician Josip E. Pečarić is the author or co-author of more than 700 scientific articles in mathematics published in mathematical journals, and about 60 mathematical articles are published in books, conference proceedings, or was presented in conferences. He published, in journals or conference proceedings, 20 articles in electrical engineering, geophysics, geology, engineering and physics, and he published, in journals, conferences or as feuilletons 40 articles in history. He is the author or co-author of 16 expert books (6 in English). He is one of the leading world experts in the theory of inequality, so in world reference journals (in USA and Germany) he is called "a great name in the theory of inequality". He is the Editor-in-Chief and founder of the international journal Mathematical Inequalities and Applications, and the Editorial Board consists of about 60 of
the most well-known world scientist dealing with the subject. He is a referee for about 60 international journals and several publishing houses. In addition to his scientific work, academician Pečarić is known for his journalistic activities.

His group is known as Pečarić's group, or as Croatian School of the Theory of Inequality. Academician Pečarić cooperates with about 150 mathematicians (from Croatia, USA, Canada, Israel, Great Britain, Sweden, Germany, Austria, Italy, Greece, Romania, Bulgaria, China, Japan, Australia, Singapour, Iran, Pakistan, etc.). Several times he was invited as a visiting professor at the universities in Australia, Italy, Sweden, and participated as plenary speaker in important international conferences. He was awarded with the State Award in Sciences in 1997, and then the President of the Republic of Croatia, Franjo Tuđman, decorated him in 1999 with the Order of Danica Hrvatska (Croatian Star) with the effigy of Rudjer Bošković
