Dear readers, It has been three years since the magazine Cro- atian Journal of Forest Engineering (the successor to the journal which had been coming out under the ti- tle Forest Mechanization for twenty-five years) was published for the first time. We have great honor and joy, but also a pleasant duty, to give you a good news. The magazine Croatian Journal of Forest Engi- neering (CROJFE) has, among other referent biblio- graphic databases, been indexed in the Web of Sci- ence database (whose constituent part is the Science Citation Index Expanded – SCI database). Thus, one of the primary goals of the Editorial Board has been fulfilled. Both issues of CROJFE published in 2007 are indexed. The Croatian Journal of Forest Engineering is published twice a year. So far, it has been indexed in the following bibliographic databases: CAB Abstracts, Compendex, GeoBase, Global Health, Paperchem, SCOPUS and VINITI. It should also be pointed out that the Croatian Journal of Forest Engineering is the only magazine in Europe which specializes in the field of forest en- gineering. Division 3 of Forest Operations Engi- neering and Management of the International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO) cite this journal as one of the reference magazines in their field of activity ( divisions/division-3/30000/publications/). Articles published in the journal are available free of charge at the journal’s internet site (http:// In addition to the journal website, its international recognition is also enhanced by the home portal »Hr~ak« ( and the international portal »Directory of Open Access Journals« ( A Glance Backwards This is the moment to remind ourselves of the year 2005, when the journal CROJFE was first laun- ched by the newly-appointed Editorial Board. Tibor Pentek was appointed Editor-in-Chief, @eljko Toma{i} was at the position of Responsible Editor
