The Society for Romanian Studies publishes a biannual peer-reviewed journal in collaboration with Liverpool University Press. The journal examines critical issues in Romanian Studies broadly conceived, linking work in that field to wider theoretical debates and issues of current relevance, and serving as a forum for both junior and senior scholars.

The journal considers original manuscripts that draw on various theoretical, conceptual and methodological perspectives as understood in disciplines ranging from history, political science, philosophy, law and justice studies, anthropology, sociology, ethnography, and education to literature, linguistics, economics, business, religion, gender, film and media studies, art history, and music. It considers theoretically informed manuscripts that examine political, socioeconomic and cultural developments in Romania and Moldova, the situation of their ethnic minorities and their relations with the ethnic majority, as well as the position, culture, and history of Romanians and Moldovans living outside the shifting boundaries of those countries.

The journal also welcomes articles that connect Romania and Moldova comparatively with other states and their ethnic majorities and minorities, as well as with other groups by investigating the challenges of migration and globalization, changes and opportunities in international relations, and the impact of the European Union. Both articles with a historical focus and studies dealing with recent events will be considered.

The journal editors will consider the following types of manuscripts: research articles (of up to 10,000 words, including bibliography), review articles (of up to 3,000 words, commenting on 2-3 books on a common theme), and book reviews (of up to 1,000 words). All submissions are subject to peer review. Special issues that group research articles on a common theme are welcomed. Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis and will undergo a full double-blind peer-review process. Manuscripts are considered for publication only if they have not been published and are not under review elsewhere. Questions can be directed to the editors.
