The Editors will manage the peer-review process and will communicate to the authors, if necessary, the observations of the referees.
By submitting a paper to the Annals of Putna the author implicitly acquiesces neither to submit the same paper to another scientific journal nor to include it in a volume before it is published in the Annals of Putna. The Editors urge the authors to announce them when the same text is submitted to another publication (whether in the original form or translated), when the text is part of a volume already prepared for publication as well as when some statements or citations require updating. Forewarned, the Editors will decide what course to adopt.
The Editors can accept to publish articles already published in other journals, if they are of a special interest for the scope and directions of “The Annals of Putna”. In such a case, the author is due to obtain the permission from the publication that published the article. Likewise, for a paper already published in “The Annals of Putna” to be re-published in another publication (journal, collected or personal volume), the author needs to ask the permission from the Editors.
The papers should be sent, in electronic format, edited in Microsoft Word or a compatible editor, together with a printed copy to any of the members of the Editorial Board or to the Secretary (.img@.img). The photos and the drawings (of printing quality) should be numbered and accompanied by explanations, with reference in the text to the place where they should be inserted. Should these details be missing the Editors will group all the illustrations – with or without explanations – at the end of the text, depending on the available space.
Bibliographical citations should be in compliance with the journal format, with respect to the underlines, abbreviations etc.
The manuscripts that do not comply with these guidelines will not be withheld for publication.

The Editors withhold the right to schedule the received materials according to the journal’s needs and to not accept the materials that from one reason or another do not meet these needs.
