The journal Studies of Prehistory is edited starting from 2001 by the Romanian Association of Archaeology (ARA), a non profit and non governmental organization. This journal is annual and is structured on chapters dedicated especially to prehistoric archaeology, but also on related inter- and pluridisciplinary studies (sedimentology, micromorphology, archaeozoology, anthropology etc.), to which book presentations and reviews are added. The authors publishing in the journal Studies of Prehistory are specialists from the academic world and the museums network, from our country and from abroad. The majority of the articles are drawn up in integrum in a foreign international language and those in Romanian language have consistent abstracts in a foreign language (English, French or German). Thus, prestigious researchers (e.g. Douglass W. Bailey, Richard I. Macphail, Vincent Ollivier, Lolita Nikolova, David Pecreaux, Laurent Carozza, Marcel Otte etc.) from the national and international archaeology published important contributions in the pages of this journal.
