The Romanian Journal for Baltic and Nordic Studies (RJBNS) was founded in 2009 as the official publication of the Romanian Association for Baltic and Nordic Studies (ARSBN). The journal is a biannual peer-reviewed multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary area studies journal that strives to disseminate information concerning the history, culture, languages, societies, economics, international relations, geography, science of Scandinavia and the Baltic Sea area. It seeks high-quality original papers and reviews of broad scholarly interest that increase understanding of the Scandinavian countries the Baltic Sea region.

Some of the topics covered include the history of Baltic and Nordic Europe, the geography of the area, Baltic and Nordic Europe in International Relations, Baltic and Nordic Europe Societies and Politics, Baltic and Nordic Cultures and Civilizations, Baltic and Nordic Economics, ethnic relations in Baltic and Northern Europe, relations between Romania, the Black Sea and Baltic and Nordic Europe.

Each issue also serves as a useful bibliographic reference. Some issues have focused on specific topics such as Viking studies, dissent and conformism in Scandinavia and the Baltic Sea Region, multiculturalism, and multilingualism, but the majority have contained contributions that represent the journal's overall aims. Some contributions are the result of Baltic and Nordic Studies conferences held with the goal of investigating the situation in Scandinavia and the Baltic Sea Region, as well as the relationships, encounters, intersections, confluences, mutual influences, and/or parallels with other areas.

Because the journal values ethical behavior, all materials authorized for publication are subjected to an external double-blind peer review procedure.

Open Access Statement

The journal is an Open Access journal that allows a free unlimited access to all its contents without any restrictions upon publication to all users.

Peer Review

The peer review process is essential in terms of quality as the articles that have undertaken the process are considered highly credible because they have undergone scrutiny by experts with particular knowledge in the topic. The primary aims of peer review are 2-fold: to decide whether or not an article should be published (based on quality and relevance to the journal), and to improve the article before publication. We acknowledge the individuals who support the Journal’s work by serving as peer reviewers and encourage interested persons to enlist by indicating their areas of expertise to the e-mail address: baltoskandia@gmail.com. An overview of our procedures related to peer review and editorial decision making is described below.

Internal Peer Review Process:

All submissions first go through an internal peer review process. Each submission is reviewed by the editor assigned by the editorial secretary who makes an initial decision to send the manuscript out for peer review or to reject without external review. Articles can be rejected at this stage for a variety of reasons such as similarity with a recently published article, the topic is outside of the scope of the Journal, little new information is provided, important flaws in the scientific validity, or an unprofessional presentation. This process normally takes a week. If the editor believes the article may be of interest to our readers, it is then sent out for external peer review.

External Double-Blind Peer Review Process:

The editors upon consulting the editorial board identifies potential reviewers based on their expertise in the field, rigor and scientific methodology. Two reviewers are thus identified for each submitted manuscript. The reviewers are selected also by selecting from our database reviewers whose past contributions recommend them by their quality reviews and fit into the time frame. They can be also selected by reading through the article’s bibliography to identify authors who have recently published in a similar area or by conducting a WorldCat and Google Scholar keyword search to identify experts in the field of the submitted paper.

Potential reviewers are contacted by the editorial secretary about their availability and interest in reviewing. Inquiries to reviewers are sent by e-mail, which include the manuscript abstract and the assignment deadline. When prospective reviewers agree to serve, they are permitted access to the manuscript and reviewing instructions, without however being permitted to know the author(s)’ name. The reviewers’ names are also unknown to manuscript author(s). Reviewers send their assessment to RRSBN. The time frame for making their decision is maximum three weeks. Upon reviewers’ recommendations, the manuscript can be accepted, sent back to author for minor revisions, sent back to author to be resubmitted or rejected.

The Editor’s Decision:

The assessments from the reviewers obtained, the editor assigned to the manuscript makes a judgment that takes into consideration the critiques and recommendations from the peer reviewers, relevance, and usefulness to researchers, professors and other likely interested readers. Editors consult with one another in the process. In the end, the editor and the honorary editor decide based on the reviews and the assigned editor recommendations whether an article will be published, rejected or postponed for the next issue. We also take into account the number of manuscripts in the queue to be published as well as our impression that the paper can be suitably revised. The authors will be announced by the editorial secretary upon this decision in due time.

Ethics and security:

The journal editor may seek advice about submitted papers not only from technical reviewers but also on any aspect of a paper that raises concerns. These may include, for example, ethical issues or issues of data or materials access. Very occasionally, concerns may also relate to the implications to society of publishing a paper, including threats to security. In such circumstances, advice will usually be sought simultaneously with the technical peer-review process. The journal has zero tolerance to plagiarism and prevents any such instances by closely scrutinizing all materials accepted for publication before releasing them to the public. It uses the anti-plagiarism detection software http://sistemantiplagiat.ro to make sure that articles do not fall into this category. As in all publishing decisions, the ultimate decision whether to publish is the responsibility of the editor of the journal concerned.
