The yearbook „Studii și articole de istorie” (“History Studies and Articles”) is the main publication of the Romanian Society of Historical Sciences. It appears continuously since 1955, with 88 volumes being published up to 2021. The journal aims both history teachers active at different education levels and a broad group of scholars engaged in the production and dissemination of historical knowledge.

Traditionally, „Studii și articole de istorie” has its main focus in the fields of didactics and history of education, but it publishes also studies on other topics. Most of the studies are published in Romanian, with an English abstract and keywords. However, the journal welcomes also papers written in other languages, and will decide on a case-by-case basis whether to publish them in English (with a large Romanian abstract) or in Romanian translation (with an English abstract).

All papers submitted for publication are subject to the double-blind peer-review system.

„Studii și articole de istorie” was classified in the B category for the field History at the latest evaluation of publishing houses and journals with a humanistic profile undertaken in 2020 by the National Council for Scientific Research . The papers published in it are indexed in Central and Eastern European Online Library (CEEOL – and ERIH+.

The LXXXIX (2022) issue of „Studii și articole de istorie” will include articles grouped under the following headings:

  • Pandemics in history. Impact on everyday life, strategies of adaptation, consequences.

The COVID-19 pandemic brought to the historians` attention older and newer pandemic phenomena, such as the Black Death in the 14th century or the Spanish Flu of 1918-1920. We welcome both synthetical overviews and empirical studies focusing on one or several of the following aspects:

  • The impact of epidemics/pandemics on local communities
  • Strategies of adaptation at the family level or in professional organisations
  • Quarantines and other measures of disease spreading prevention
  • Medical solutions against diseases
  • Demographic, socio-economic, cultural, and political consequences of pandemics
  • Sports and national identities

Even though is has ancient origins, sports became a major social phenomenon in the 20th century. The Olympic Games, the Davis Cup, national or international championships and othersporting competitions generate intense passions and contribute to the consolidation of national and regional social identities. We welcome both synthetical overviews and empirical studies focusing on one or several of the following aspects:

  • The Olympic Games – a space of competition between nations
  • The 1972 Davis Cup Final
  • National and gender identities in international gymnastics competitions
  • Great rivalries in football
  • National teams and the integration of minorities – implications for the redefinition of national identities
  • Industrialisation and deindustrialisation

In the 21st century the share of the industry in the economy is decreasing in favour of services and the knowledge-based economy. However, it is important to underline that the increased economic and social development of the 19th-20th centuries was triggered by the industrial revolution and was powered by the expansion in industrial production. In this sense, the historical analysis of the industrialisation and de industrialisation could improve our understanding of the contemporary world, as well as of the future of industrial activities. We welcome both synthetical overviews and empirical studies focusing on one or several of the following aspects:

  • The role of industry in the history of a micro-region / community
  • The industrialisation process in Romania (natural resources, factories, industrial processes, professions)
  • The growth and the decline of industrial branches
  • Technological progress, increased productivity, and market saturation for some industrial products
  • The link between industrial development and Europe`s global hegemony
  • History of education
  • Didactics and educational management in teaching and learning history. Analyses and opinions

We especially welcome concrete analyses, based on the authors` experiences, as well as texts related to online teaching.

  • Commemorations, historical memory and consciousness
  • Miscellanea
  • Book reviews
