History :

      The journal appeared under the title "Comparative Maritime Law and Commerce" at the end of 1958, at a time when there were no adequate regulations for all maritime affairs. Thus, this periodical publication was launched with the aim of scientific and practical processing of the problem of comparative maritime law and regulations of maritime law and of transport law in general.
From the begining, the need to provide current information on legal instruments in the field of maritime economy and overseas exchange was sought. The Adriatic Institute was entrusted with the work on the preparation and drafting of maritime laws and regulations for the entire community.

From the Issue No 1 to No 99 format was 30 cm, and it was printed by multiplying the typed pages by the chrome-plated technique.

With the Issue Number 100, at 1983, publishing has been updated, the look of the journal has changed (the new format is shortened to 24 cm, and since then it has blue ink), the journal has got its ISSN number, and the concept of content was renewed so the rubrics and themes became more visible. Thus, articles, translations and comments, judgments, reports, book reviews and various other informations were visualy separate .

A cumulative index was also published occasionally.


There were some changes during the journal's history:

  • In the title: Comparative Maritime Law and Commerce (1958-1988), Comparative Maritime Law (1989-1996) (*there were some differences in Croatian), and since 1997 is: Comparative maritime law;
  • The title was linked to the international standard number: (1984 - 1990): ISSN 0352-4949; (1991-1996): ISSN 0353-5487; From No. 153/154 : ISSN 1331-9914 ;
  • In the publisher's name: 1958-1974: Adriatic Institute; From 1974 to 1991 the name of the publisher was: the Department of Maritime Law, History and Maritime Economics (Zagreb), and since 1992 it has been named: Jadranski zavod (=The Adriatic Institute of the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts);
  • In periodicity: initially there was a quarterly period, then several double and quadrupled appearances, and since 2001 it is an annual.

But there was always a constant and high quality profile of authors, reviewers and associates.
