2 Constantin Daicoviciu St.,







The peer review process of the scientific journal Acta Musei Napocensis. Historica follows the international standards of evaluation. All manuscripts will be subjected to a double-blind peer review process involving two or more peer reviewers.

The peer review process includes the following steps:

1. Submission of the paper
The manuscripts are submitted by e-mail at the following addresses: amnhistorica@mnit.ro or amnhistorica@gmail.com.
Submission deadline: 30 June.

2. Editorial Board Assessment
The Editorial Board checks the submitted papers to ensure that they comply with the editorial and scientific requirements of the journal and also to determine if the articles are of interest to the journal. If not, they can be rejected without being sent to a reviewer.

3. The Reviewers
The editors choose two reviewers for each article whose areas of expertise correspond to the topic of the article. The selected reviewers will not be affiliated with our institution. The peer review process is double-blind which means that the author’s name remains unknown to the reviewers and vice versa. If one of the peer reviewers refuses, another one will be selected.

The peer reviewer will read the article and make comments and suggestions using the existing peer review form and, when needed, he/she can insert comments in the text. The editors will take into consideration both reviews of the article. If there is a major difference between them, an additional reviewer will be contacted by the editors.

If the manuscript is accepted for publication, the authors will receive the anonymized peer review form containing the revisions they are required to perform or will be notified if the paper is accepted as it stands. Please note that the authors must perform all the changes indicated by the reviewers or argue in support of the rejection. Otherwise their papers can be rejected. The authors requested to submit revisions will send the revised versions of their papers to the editors (the editors will mention the final deadline in their correspondence with each author).

4. The Decision
The final decision of publishing the article is taken by the editorial board and is communicated to the author.

5. Scientific Research Ethics
Please consider the principles of scientific research ethics when submitting an article.
All submitted articles must be original research work, abide by copyright rules, and must not have been published elsewhere or be currently under review for other publications.
When including images in the paper, please make sure that you have already acquired the permission for their publication, if such is required.
