This format is required of all articles, regardless of their original language. The journal is published in English, but we accept submissions in Romanian and Hungarian, provided they are later translated for publication.

The journal cannot provide the English translation of all articles initially submitted in Romanian or Hungarian. Therefore, after the articles have been accepted by the internal reviewers, the editorial office may request that the authors translate their articles in English.

The articles must be submitted with an Abstract of no more than 100 words and 5-6 Keywords, inserted between the title, author and the body of the article. Please include your full name, affiliation and e-mail.

The authors must take into consideration that the journal is addressed to an international public which might need explanations regarding local, national or regional events, phenomenon or general aspects. The citations in languages of international circulation must be provided in the original, not in Romanian or Hungarian translations, or in the generally accepted English translation. In the case of other foreign languages, the journal and the author will find a solution acceptable for both parties.
