The Romanian Journal of Society and Politics was established in Fall 2000 to provide an international and inter-disciplinary forum for the publication of high-quality, original research in the social sciences with relevance to contemporary Romania. Its aim is to collect significant contributions on the country and region in one outstanding publication.
The RJSP promotes interdisciplinary approaches, and contributions from
disciplines outside the social sciences are welcome as long as they address issues of relevance to contemporary Romanian politics, culture, or society. The Romanian Journal of Society and Politics also publishes reviews of relevant books as well as review articles, and encourages the submission of responses to articles previously published.
The Romanian Journal of Society and Politics is published semi-annually under the auspices of the Civic Education Project in Romania. It is edited by an international team composed of two executive editors and a supporting editorial committee. An international advisory board lends expert advise on journal content and policies. Manuscript submissions accepted for review are evaluated anonymously by three scholars active in the relevant area of research.
This publication is the only journal devoted to inter-disciplinary national and international perspectives on Romania. Every issue of the RJSP focuses on a particular theme, including a broad range of topics from international relations and economics to public policies, social philosophy, and human rights.
Manuscripts are accepted on the understanding that their content is original. The
Romanian Journal of Society and Politics
does not consider submissions currently under review at other journals or those that duplicate or overlap significantly with materials that have been submitted to other publishers. Submissions must demonstrate excellence in conceptualization, exposition, methodology, and craftsmanship. Manuscripts must be formatted according to The Chicago Manual of Style, 14th edition, with a preferred length of around 25 double-spaced pages. Manuscripts cannot be returned to authors.
Articles must include an abstract of approximately 150 words. Four hard
copies and, in case of acceptance, one diskette copy in MSWord for Windows or a compatible format must be submitted. Three of the hard copies may not include the author's name nor any identifying references. The fourth must include complete contact information, including e-mail address and telephone number. Initial submission by e-mail is also acceptable. A three to four line biographical paragraph describing each author's current affiliation, research interests, and recent publications related to the submission should accompany the manuscript.
The RJSP considers book reviews of up to 1,000 words and review essays
of up to 5,000 words which clarify the contributions and value of the works reviewed for contemporary research on Romanian politics and society.
Review essays must place publications into a broad conceptual context and suggest directions for future research. Two hard copies and one diskette copy as specified above must be submitted. Initial submission by e-mail is also acceptable. The documented cost of reviewed books is refunded by the RJSP if the subject is salient and the review is of publishable quality.
The RJSP also considers responses of up to 1,000 words to material
previously published for inclusion in the "Discussion Forum" section of the journal.
