How to publish in this journal


Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration includes referred articles, technical notes, letters-to-the-editor, book reviews, a calendar, and announcements of general interest to readers. Articles may be theoretical or experimental in nature. But those which combine theoretical and experimental approaches to solve acoustic and vibration problems are particularly welcome. Technical notes (or brief contributions), letters-to-the-editor, and announcements may also be submitted. Articles must not have been previously published in other engineering or scientific journals. Articles in the following (or related areas) are particularly encouraged: active noise control, active vibration control, aero acoustics, architectural acoustics, boundary element and finite element methods, condition monitoring and diagnostics, passive and active damping, environmental noise, human response to sound and vibration, inverse methods, low frequency noise and vibration, machinery noise and vibration control, materials for noise and vibration control, measurement techniques, mechanisms of human hearing, modal analysis, musical acoustics, noise control elements, non-destructive testing, non-linear acoustics and vibration, numerical methods, occupational noise exposure and control, outdoor sound propagation, scattering of sound, signal processing, sound intensity, sound sources, sound transmission, energy statistical analysis, structural acoustics and vibration, structural intensity, transportation vibration and noise, underwater acoustics, vibration and shock, vibration sources, and wavelet analysis.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Total Cites 

Evolution of the total number of citations and journal's self-citations received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years.
Journal Self-citation is defined as the number of citation from a journal citing article to articles published by the same journal.

Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.

Citable documents 
Non-citable documents

Not every article in a journal is considered primary research and therefore "citable", this chart shows the ratio of a journal's articles including substantial research (research articles, conference papers and reviews) in three year windows vs. those documents other than research articles, reviews and conference papers.
