Key information for authors

Aims and scope of the journal: The primary objective of this journal is the publication of original results of research in information science and technology. There is no restriction on the addressed topics, the only acceptance criterion being the originality and quality of the articles, proved by independent reviewers. However, contributions to emerging areas are encouraged, which means that they represent a priority for review and publication.

Review papers are not published, except at the special request of the Editorial Board.

Romanian Journal of Information Science and Technology (a publication of the Romanian Academy) is indexed and abstracted in the following: Thomson Reuters products and information services Science Citation Index Expanded (also known as SciSearch®), Journal Citation Reports/Science Edition.

Contributions, written in English, must be submitted to (after 1st of January, 2019) and must be accompanied by a signed Statement of Originality (included in the Cover Letter, see below). The manuscripts submitted for peer review must be in Word or PDF format, with high quality drawing/photos. The length of paper for normal contributions varies between 10 and 12 pages, containing a synthesis of the results of a new research (partial or preliminary results are not accepted). The templates and examples of papers are indicated here (MS Word) and here (Latex), and they must be respected by prospective authors.

If the paper is accepted after the peer review process, the authors will be invited to submit a final version of the manuscript, which also complies with the template indicated above. No charge is requested for publication. The authors should also submit the filled in and signed (by all authors) copyright form indicated here (Copyright Form).

Authors are requested to complete, sign and send by e-mail, together with their paper, a scanned copy of the Cover letter, as indicated by the following Template. This template includes the politics of the journal with respect to the possible use of AI and AI-assisted technologies in the writing process, described as follows. If the authors use such technologies in the writing process, they should be used to improve readability and language of the papers and not to replace key researcher tasks such as producing scientific insights, analyzing and interpreting data or drawing scientific conclusions. Applying the technology is done with human oversight and control and the authors should carefully review and edit the result, because AI can generate authoritative-sounding output that can be incorrect, incomplete or biased. The authors are ultimately responsible and accountable for the contents of their papers. The authors must disclose in their papers the use of AI and AI-assisted technologies, and a statement will appear in the submitted papers. Declaring the use of these technologies supports transparency and trust between authors, readers, reviewers, editors and contributors and facilitates compliance with the terms of use of the relevant tool or technology. The authors will not list AI and AI-assisted technologies as an author or co-author, nor cite AI as an author. Authorship implies responsibilities and tasks that can only be attributed to and performed by humans. Each (co-) author is accountable for ensuring that questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the paper are appropriately investigated and resolved and authorship requires the ability to approve the final version of the paper and agree to its submission. The authors are also responsible for ensuring that the papers are original, that the stated authors qualify for authorship, and the papers do not infringe third party rights, before the submission.
