Overview edit

The project began in 1999, and it represents a fifth iteration of the encyclopedic tradition that was established by Mate Ujević's Croatian Encyclopedia, and continued in the Encyclopedia of the Lexicographical Institute, as well as the two editions of the General Encyclopedia.[1]

Eleven volumes were published in the period 1999-2009, with a new volume appearing every year. Since 2010, the Internet edition of the encyclopedia was prepared, updated and enriched with new multimedia content.[2] The free Internet edition of the Croatian Encyclopedia has been available since September 2013. Paper volumes are no longer published and further work has been exclusively done in the form of a computer database, which serves as the basis for Internet and other multimedia editions of the encyclopedia.[3]
