STUDIA PHILOLOGIA

HISTORY OF STUDIA PHILOLOGIA

For more than a half-century (its first issue was published in 1956), Studia Universitatis Babeş-Bolyai Philologia has run continuously, acquiring national and international prestige. Its fields of interest – literary and linguistic research, together with ethnology, poetics, etc. – have attracted many contributors, the great majority of them from Romania and Europe.

The publication’s thematic diversity attracted appreciation from many academic environments: European (especially Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Norway, Sweden, Hungary, Czech Republic, Poland, and Russia), American and, recently, Japanese and Korean, which has lead to an increase in the number of external partners in charge of coordinating thematic issues.

Studia Universitatis is presently enjoying higher visibility in the academic circles thanks to the quality of the published material and the activity of the review committee (both domestic and foreign) who evaluate the contributions from authors and coordinators of thematic issues.

After the CNCSIS evaluation in 2005 all issues were published entirely in foreign languages, mainly in English, French and German, but also in Spanish, Italian, Norwegian and Japanese.

The editorial board have included personalities representative for the new fields of research towards which the publication is expanding. The editorial team, as well as the ISI reviewers, believe that linguistic diversity acts as a guarantee for global visibility for Studia Universitatis Babeş-Bolyai Philologia.
