About the Journal

About the Journal
"Erdélyi Társadalom" (Transylvanian Society) is a scientific journal published twice a year. It appeared for the first time in 2003.
The editing of the journal is the responsibility of the Hungarian Department of Sociology and Social Work of the Babeş-Bolyai University (BBU) in Cluj, while the publisher is the Cluj University Press [Presa Universitară Clujeană], the publishing house of the BBU.
The aim of our journal is to provide a quality periodical for scientific communication to members of the social science community, including sociology, social work, social geography, regional studies and cultural anthropology. We invite especially, but not exclusively, papers that address topics related to Transylvania, Romania or minorities in general.
Each issue of the journal is built around a specific theme, therefore we expect articles that focus on those topics. Nevertheless, each number might include one or two papers that are not connected to the general theme.
Our target audience is made up of social scientists, researchers and practitioners, especially political consultants and media specialists interested in understanding the ethnic Hungarian society of Transylvania, and Transylvania in general.

"Erdélyi Társadalom" (Transylvanian Society) is a peer reviewed journal. The double blind peer review process entails two anonymous evaluations by external reviewers.
Indexing and abstracting
Our journal is indexed by the international databases Index Copernicus and "CEEOL" and it is accessible on-line. Also the articles of the journal can be found in the ProQuest, GESIS and DataCite databases.
