Arheologia Moldovei is one of the most prestigious Romanian scientific journals in the field of Archaeology, issued since 1961 by the Institute of Archaeology in Iasi, under the aegis of the Romanian Academy. Since 1990 the issues of the journal are published yearly. The journal publishes larger studies, papers, as well as notes and reviews pertaining to all fields of Archaeology, in terms of both chronology (from prehistory to the Middle Ages) and thematic (from theoretical essays to excavation reports and archaeometry). The languages of publication are English, German, French and Romanian (the latter with with larger English abstracts). Since its first issue, Arheologia Moldovei was an international journal which, even during the hard times of communism, provided authors from abroad with a forum and an opportunity for enhanced international collaboration. This is demonstrated, especially during the last years, by the large number of contributions by scholars from all over Europe, as well as from the rest of the world.
Arheologia Moldovei is an open access journal and does not charge any kind of publication fees.
The submitted papers are peer reviewed by foreign and Romanian scholars, covering all aspects of Archaeology and all periods, from Prehistory to the Middle Ages, before being admitted for publication. Arheologia Moldovei operates a strictly blinded peer review process in which the reviewer’s name is withheld from the author and, the author’s name from the reviewer. Each manuscript is reviewed by at least two referees.
Arheologia Moldovei take issues of copyright infringement, plagiarism or other breaches of best practice in publication very seriously. We seek to protect the rights of our authors and we always investigate claims of plagiarism or misuse of articles published in the journal. Equally, we seek to protect the reputation of the journal against malpractice. Submitted articles may be checked using duplication-checking software. Where an article is found to have plagiarised other work or included third-party copyright material without permission or with insufficient acknowledgement, or where authorship of the article is contested, we reserve the right to take action including, but not limited to: publishing an erratum or corrigendum (correction); retracting the article (removing it from the journal); taking up the matter with the head of department or dean of the author’s institution and/or relevant academic bodies or societies; banning the author from publication in the journal, or even legal action.
Copyright on published articles is retained by the author(s). The exclusive responsibility in respect of the acknowledgement of author’s rights and/or copyright rests with the responsible author(s). The Editor, publisher and reviewers of this journal cannot accept responsibility for the infringement of authors’ rights or copyright. The author grants the publisher unlimited rights to publish the work in any format and/or medium, whether for gain or any other purpose.
