Due to the COVID-19 pandemic context, as well as due to the institutional reorganization of our publisher, the Bucharest University Press, into a new legal entity (a process finalized on July 1st, 2021), we have experienced significant disruptures in the usual communication flows, which affected our editorial work during the last two years.

We are nonetheless happy to announce that, as of July 2021, we have a NEW EDITORIAL TEAM for the next 3 years (2021-2023).

We are currently accepting new manuscripts and we continue to process the already submitted texts. It is still likely that reviews and the publication of the 2021 volume may be slightly delayed, as we rely exclusively on collegial input and we depend on the log clearing at our publisher but we try our best to provide timely feedback. We apologize for all inconvenience and we wish eveybody to stay safe and healthy.

Meanwhile, you can check the full archive (1999-2020) here.
