Short Description

SAECULUM is a biannual open acces journal of humanities and social sciences of the “Lucian Blaga” University of Sibiu. The journal was founded by the philosopher and poet Lucian Blaga, in 1943. The existence of the philosophical journal was short and ended in 1944, because of the war. After half a century, in 1995, professor Ion Dur brings it back to the public attention as a cultural synthesis journal which publishes studies, essays, reviews, translations, interviews and literary texts.

Today, the fields of research covered by SAECULUM are human and social sciences. Research methods used are those specific to the related fields. The reviewers, according to the scorecard of the manuscripts, verify whether the articles are in compliance with these criteria or not.

SAECULUM is an open access journal and it has no processing and submission article charges. In other words, no fee for publication.

The thematic option of SÆCULUM took into account the work of the spiritual model of the University of Sibiu, initially a journal of cultural synthesis, subtitled afterwards, from 2008 until 2012, journal of cultural and communication studies, but then it gave up tacitly to any particular profile. The name of our publication is enough significant in itself, so that it doesn’t need any semantic prosthesis.

What SÆCULUM is can clearly be seen in its columns, most of them permanent standing areas where complementary blend of philosophy and aesthetics, literature and criticism, history and collective mentality, to which we can add more areas of culture explored from the hermeneutic point of view: Founding Culture, The Faces of The Ages, Convergences / Divergences, Identity-Alterity, Palimpsest, History and Memory, Argument of the Work, The Lesson of Hermeneutics, (S)elective Affinities, Glass Curtain, Aesthetic Experience, Religion and Spirit, Communication-Communion, In medias media, Reviews-Notes-Notation. To which will be added, perhaps, other columns covering areas of interest which would converge our cognitive and axiological interests.

SÆCULUM permanently has included in its pages reference texts, written authors from our country and from abroad, which made the journal enjoy the appropriate prestige. The published articles have become, in most cases, consistent bibliographic reference points, being appreciated not only for style, but also for the depth and originality of ideas.

Indexing information
