About the Journal
ARA Journal has started as the main publication of ARA in 1977, to publish papers presented at the ARA Congress. The last issue of ARA Journal was published in 2009. Starting 2005, the Proceedings of the ARA Congress were published instead of the ARA Journal. This is because while the ARA Journal would publish the papers after their were presented at a Congress, ARA Congress Proceedings were published before the Congress. At the request of ARA members, the ARA Journal was re-started in 2017 in a new journal format and published as two Journals: ARA Journal of Arts and Culture, and ARA Journal of Sciences.
ARA Journal of Arts and Culture is a peer-review journals published by ARA Publisher, a publishing House of the American Romanian Academy of Arts and Sciences. The majority of the articles in ARA Journal are contributions of the members and nonmembers of the Academy made at the ARA Congresses. Also, the papers presented at the ARA Congresses and published in the ARA Journal of Arts and Sciences receive an unique DOI number and published online in an open source. The open source system allows for papers to have maximum exposure and to be cited.
ARA Journal of Arts and Culture is also published in print using a new digital print-on-demand (POD) system that offers a multitude of ways to increase the visibility of the ARA academy through smarter inventory management and more capable services, which increases ARA’s international exposure and visibility through more than 40,000 libraries.
