Submit manuscripts as e-mail attachment to the Editorial Office at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Papers must be submitted on the understanding that they have not been published elsewhere (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture, review, or thesis) and are not currently under consideration by another journal.


Style of Manuscripts

The use of technical terms should be made explicit. Where the technical details cannot be avoided, they will be included in the annexes, leaving the text accessible to the professional reader who is not a specialist in any particular field. However, in those cases in which formalization is essential, it may be included in the text but must be accompanied, during the exposure, by clear interpretations and examples.


General Points

Papers will be presented in Romanian or English / French. They will be edited with MS Word '97 version at least, A4, in single spacing, font "Times New Roman" 12. Diacritics are obligatory in Romanian texts. 150 words Abstract as well as Keywords, in English, and also the affiliation and current position of the author (possibly his last published book) should accompany each submission. Papers will not exceed 6,000 words (including annexes and bibliography). Only as an exception, a longer work could be allowed.



Capitals should be used sparingly. Use italics for non-naturalized words of foreign origin. Thus: Weltanschauung. Omit full stops from common abbreviations and acronyms: MP, USA.
