JOURNAL AMHA – ACTA MEDICO‐HISTORICA ADRIATICA
20 YEARS OF DEDICATED WORK ON THE SCIENTIFIC VALORISATION OF THE HISTORY OF MEDICINE
In this paper, the first 20 years of publication of the scientific journal AMHA – Acta medi‐ co‐historica Adriatica (2002–2022) are presented and analysed. This journal has undo- ubtedly become and remained the central activity of the Croatian Scientific Society for the History of Health Culture, which has rapidly evolved into a globally esteemed journal in the history of medicine. The beginning and the context of publishing the journal with reference to the scientific conference “Rijeka and Its Citizens in Medical History” are presented, as well as the journal’s profiling into a distinguished international scientific journal, co-publishing with the Faculty of Medicine (University of Rijeka) and its fast development in the later ye- ars. The analysis shows the growth of the journal’s visibility through indexation in different international journal databases, the number and ratio of scientific articles and the variety of published material. Finally, a review of the potential future directions of development and the significance of this journal within the national, regional and international context is given.
