In order to bring closer the concept of quality of doctoral studies through the national and international examples of good practice, the Agency for Science and Higher Education published a brochure Quality assurance of doctoral studies in Croatia – recommendations and examples of good practice.

This guide that has been developed together with the representatives of higher education institutions, doctoral candidates and young researchers provides experiences and recommendations from previous evaluations conducted in Croatia as well as examples from other countries. It contains similarities and differences in implementing doctoral education in different foreign countries, quality criteria and re-accreditation outcomes and recommendations for the national framework by expert panels.

The aim of this guide is to offer higher education institutions undergoing the re-accreditation of doctoral studies recommendations and motive them to use self-evaluation, i.e. to raise the awareness of advantages and disadvantages with the aim of further enhancement of quality of doctoral education in Croatia.
