With a quarterly apparition and an inter-disciplinary thematic, the Romanian Journal of Materials publishes the results of original research in the fields of BINDERS AND CONCRETE; BIOMATERIALS AND BIO-NANOMATERIALS; SUBSTANCES, PROCEDURES AND DEVICES FOR MEDICINE; CERAMICS AND GLASS; COMPOSITES AND NANOCOMPOSITES; MATERIALS SCIENCE, as well as papers on modelling phenomena, processes and their mechanism.
GUIDELINES FOR AUTHORS
There are accepted only papers with original results that have not been previously published. It is recommended that the work to be within a maximum of 10 pages, including figures and the number of authors must be justified by contents. Authors must write the address and the corresponding author will also send the e-mail. The title should not contain abbreviations. The abstract should contain 10-15 lines.

STRUCTURE OF THE PAPERS
The paper has to consist of two distinct parts.
The introduction, prepared on the basis of the literature data, has to be succinct and clear, related to the object of the paper and constitutes a support for the correct interpretation of the original results. Recent literature citation is expected to be included in Bibliography chapter.
The second part must describe the conditions and experimental procedures that have been used, results and their interpretation. The results and their interpretation have to be at a high scientific level, by highlighting the original contribution of the paper. It ends with conclusions which have to be succinct and clear formulated. Only International System units have be used.
The references quoted in the paper will be numbered from 1 to n, by figures placed between straight brackets, following the order of the quotation in the text. Quotation way for articles in journals, volumes of some conferences, books, doctorate theses or patents are given below:

The articles proposed by the authors are subject to a peer review to be carried out by 2 specialized reviewers, a process that may take 90 days at the most. After the review has taken place, the editorial staff receives the reports based on which it is decided if the proposed paper may be included in the following 4 categories: · accepted for publication · proposed for publication with the modifications suggested by the reviewers · rejected for publication (too many major technical observations · rejected for publication (it does not cover the topics of the journal. If the sent texts require modifications, the term for taking the decision of publication is delayed. In this case the author must take into consideration all the reviewers’ remarks answering to them point by point. The modified text will be written in a different colour. The author will be informed of the editor’s decision by e-mail.
