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 and Baltic Sea region.
Some of the topics covered include the history of Baltic and Nordic Europe, 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, 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.
Additional editions of the journal may be published on the internet with articles in any of the Baltic or Nordic languages or in Romanian, in which case a different numbering system will be used, in order to increase understanding of the Baltic and Nordic languages and cultures in South-Eastern Europe. Except for the English language abstracts, which must be 300 to 400 words, the standard submission rules apply in this case two.
