Rhinology, as an important part of Otorhinolaryngology, addresses a very frequent and diverse pathology, with important interdisciplinary implications. In the last decades, this medical field was the beneficiary of new technical means for accurate and effective investigation, treatment and research. The needs of modern medicine - over-specialization, interdisciplinary approach and evidence-based medicine, lead to the situation that the international rhinologic societies are the most dynamic and appreciated.

The Romanian Journal of Rhinology is the official scientific publication of the Romanian Rhinologic Society, and it is trying to fill the existing gap in the Romanian ENT literature, promoting modern publishing and criteria according to the international standards. Romanian Journal of Rhinology appears quarterly with the purpose to publish original articles, original clinical reports, clinically relevant experimental studies and short communications presenting new results of general interest. Its aim is to concentrate and provide information concerning care, cure and prevention of different rhinologic disorders and borderline pathology.

Editorial process

The Romanian Journal of Rhinology uses a standard scheme for the evaluation process of the submitted articles. All manuscripts are strictly reviewed for originality, correctness, methodology, quality of the medical information, suitability for the journal’s medical field, ethical nature.

The Editors reserve the right to refuse any manuscript which does not correspond to the submission guidelines.

Peer-review is the system used to assess the quality of a manuscript before it is published. Independent researchers in the otorhinolaryngology area assess the submitted manuscripts for originality, validity, and significance to help editors determine whether the manuscript should be published in their journal.

After submission:

  1. All manuscript are treated as confidential documents, all being assigned with a registration number (for example, RJR010121 (day of submission)(month of submission) (the last two numbers of the year of submission)). All communications between the editors, the author(s), the reviewers are made by using this identification number.
  2. Technical review performed by the editor-in-chief, associated editors, members of the editorial board analyses – the importance of the subject, presentation clarity, relevance, plagiarism index. Submissions that fail to fulfil all requirements are rejected. This process last for a few days after submission.
  3. Review process. The Romanian Journal of Rhinology has a double-blind reviewing process, in which the reviewers do not know the names of the authors, and the authors do not know who reviewed their manuscript. Therefore, the authors are required to submit a blind manuscript without the authors’ names and affiliations on the title page or in the text and a separate title page with the names of the authors, affiliations, and information about the corresponding author. After the initial assessment for, submissions are sent to at least two experts in the field who are asked to evaluate whether the manuscript is scientifically coherent, easy to read, useful in the field, and whether the manuscript should be accepted, rejected or revised. The review process will take approximately 2 weeks. After the review process is completed, the corresponding author will receive an e- mail about the evaluation results of the submitted manuscript: accepted, revision or rejection. If the e-mail contains suggestions and comments for revising the manuscript, the authors should make the changes and return to the editor within 2 weeks; if not, the manuscript is considered rejected. If the manuscript is accepted for publication by the reviewers, it is forwarded to the Editor-in-Chief. The final decisions are made by the Editor-in-Chief based on the recommendations of reviewers reports and the journal’s editors. Where necessary, they will consult with members of the Editorial Board. The Editor-in-Chief may advice the corresponding author to make necessary revisions in order to publish the article. The final form of the article will be sent to the main author for the last approval from his/her part (if there are minor changes these should be send in no more than 1 week).

The publication process after the article’s submission may take 45 days, average. All accepted articles are assigned with a DOI number.
