Guidelines for authors


The Editorial Board of the Journal of Archaeological and Numismatic Research will welcome with equal interest the contributions of archaeologists and numismatists, but also of specialists in related fields, with potential for the integration into historical knowledge.

Given that, respecting the rigours of academic expression, the papers submitted to the Editorial Board aim to transmit results of original research, to debate innovative opinions, topics and approaches in the field of archaeology and numismatics, the Journal of Archaeological and Numismatic Research will be honoured to offer its pages for their hosting.

The papers, written in Romanian or in an international language (English, French or German), will be sent to the editorial office in electronic format, in a single folder, archived, containing the text, with the following characteristics:

– page format 24 × 17 cm;

– font Times New Roman;

– title, author, article – 11 pt., single spaced, one column;

– bilingual abstracts – 11 pt., Italic.

– footnotes 9 pt., numbered 1-n, at the bottom of the page;

All materials must be written in MS Office Word. For the situation in which special characters are used (Greek, Slavonic) the author will attach to the e-mail correspondence the fonts used.

Photographs of objects must be at 1: 1 scale, indicating, if necessary, an increase in scale (2x or more). Otherwise, a drawn scale should be included.
