For the issues published in January, the manuscripts must be submitted online until 1st October, for the ones published in May, until 1st of March and the ones for the issue published in August, until 1st of June.

Papers should be written in English and submitted in final camera-ready form (for Romanian authors we ask to submit also the Romanian translation of the paper).

Please pay serious attention to the English version translation correctness.

We recommend that the papers should be thoroughly structured in order to ensure the clarity of the content as well as the essence of the approached topic.

All the articles must present original researches.

An copyright form will have to accompany your submission (the signed copyright form has to be scanned). You can get the .PDF form version on-line (see the link bellow). Authors are responsible for obtaining any security clearances. All authors have to sign the copyright transfer form. There are some restrictions regarding the length of the copyright file, so please read carefully the instruction provided there.

 

MANUSCRIPT PREPARATION GUIDELINES

 

As an author, you are kindly advised to use the paper template of the journal ECOFORUM. This way you have nothing to change in terms of paper and text format.

Simply applying the styles defined in the document will be sufficient.

Author name, affiliation and complete address are to be placed underneath the title. In case of multiple authorship of a submitted paper, the affiliation and complete address of each author must be specified.

 

It is mandatory to submit your original work in Microsoft Word format (DOC) by using our on-line manuscript submission system. You have to "Make a Submission" and upload your paper by using the on-line interface.

We are unable to process files sent by E-mail.

 

We will do the final formatting and all necessary format conversions of your paper.

Papers must have an even number of pages: 4, 6 or 8. At least 50% of the last page should be occupied by text.
