Summary/Abstract: Although its title may suggest otherwise, the text that follows has not been written with a polemical intent. Instead, it should be understood as a somewhat longer footnote to the contribution published in the Forum section of the Revija za sociologiju, under the title “A Parochial Status of Croatian Sociology?” (Štulhofer, Baćak and Šuljok, 2010: 103–108). Following a brief report on the performed bibliometric analysis, the authors claim that – according to their findings – Croatian sociology is situated at the margins of international productivity and visibility. At the end of their contribution, they propose measures that should be taken in order to change the situation in which – according to the authors – the discipline of sociology in Croatia “exist[s] on the margins of relevance, deliberately distanced from a rapidly globalizing world of social sciences” (Štulhofer, Baćak and Šuljok, 2010: 107).
