Author’s Guidelines

For authors:

The Romanian Studies Association of America Journal (The RSAA Journal) publishes academic articles in Romanian Studies, as well as fiction and non-fiction creative pieces, poetry and other types of creative works.

The proposed materials can be an original piece or a republication of an existing article. Authors are responsible for obtaining permission from copyright holders for the republication of one of their works.

Materials for publication can be submitted directly to

For original works/articles, the journal applies an anonymous peer review process in which the reviewer’s and the author’s names are not revealed.

Each submission for publication should contain:

  • title / subtitle (if any).
  • On a separate page: the author’s full name with current affiliation, full address/phone/email and a biographical paragraph.
  • 8-10 (or more) key words
  • main text (with in-text references); use also end notes
  • bibliography

Language and Style:

If the text is in English, authors can use either British or American English. Any style is also accepted (MLA, Chicago, etc.) as long as it is consistently applied from the beginning to the end of the text.

Romanian authors may also publish in Romanian.

The style should avoid technical terms or any language difficult to understand. However, if specific terms or acronyms are used, the terminology should be defined.


Authors are also responsible for obtaining permission from copyright holders for reproducing any illustrations, tables, figures or other types of materials published elsewhere which are inserted in the work to be published.
