Romanian Journal of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care

Open access
The Romanian Journal of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care (Jurnalul Român de Anestezie Terapie Intensivă) is a biannual, in English, with abstracts in English and Romanian, ranked CNCS B+ and indexed Embase, PubMed and Scopus. This journal publishes papers reporting original clinical and experimental researches, reviews, case reports, editorials, guidelines, letters to Editor, book reviews as well as other materials considered adequate by the Editorial committee. In 2002, the Journal changed its name to “Jurnalul Român de Anestezie Terapie Intensivă” (ISSN 2344-2336) to better reflect its primary purpose. It continued to be published in Romanian, with abstracts in both Romanian and English, while 1-2 articles/issue were published in English only. We encouraged all Romanian authors to submit manuscripts written in English, and gradually the number of articles in English increased. The homepage has been written in English (, and is accessible freely on-line; it was established in 2007 with the aim of widening its readership and promoting the Journal abroad. It contained: the Journal title, the title and abstracts of all published articles and the full text of articles in English. In 2008, the Journal benefited from the addition of an international editorial board of 8 members, which was subsequently enlarged to the current 22 members. The number of articles published in English increased, facilitating the inclusion of international experts tasked with reviewing the submitted manuscripts. The peer review enhanced the quality of the publications, stimulated additional original research, and eventually led to the indexing of the Journal in the Elsevier Bibliographic Database (EMBASE and SCOPUS) in 2009, and in the Romanian Ministry of Education CNCSIS B+ database. In 2014, in order to both increase the Journal’s readership internationally, and to attract a broader base of submissions, the Board decided to publish the Journal entirely in English, under the new name, “The Romanian Journal of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care” (ISSN 2392-7518). A native English-speaker editor has been recruited to assist non-native English-speaking authors with style and grammar, and a statistical editor was also added to the editorial process. In 2017 the Journal was accepted to be indexed in the PubMed Central database of the National Library of Medicine USA.

The Romanian Journal of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care (Rom J Anaesth Int Care) is intended for anaesthesia and intensive care clinicians, and for specialists in emergency medical care, pain research and pain management. The principal aim is to stimulate and promote scientific discovery by publishing research papers and manuscripts accompanied by editorials written by experts in the field. The editorials seek to place the research findings in the appropriate clinical context, highlighting how the information is directly applicable to patient care and how it benefits the clinician and the patient. The Journal also seeks to inform and update anaesthesiologists about clinical and regulatory developments by publishing reviews and educational materials such as Clinical Guidelines of the European Society of Anaesthesiology and those of our Romanian National Society.
