ACTA PALAEONTOLOGICA ROMANIAE
Acta Palaeontologica Romaniae
was established in 1997, joint with the first edition of the Romanian Symposium on Paleontology, at the initiative of Prof. Ovidiu Dragastan; its main purpose was to gather and present within a single publication the in-extenso papers arising from the contributions presented at the symposium, in English to achieve widespread distribution. Conceived as a conference proceedings volume, edited and published by the organizers of the successive paleontological symposia held under the auspices of the Romanian Society of Paleontologists (RSP), Acta Palaeontologica Romaniae continued its biannual apparitions in parallel with the symposia taking place in Cluj, Iasi, and Bucharest, respectively; in 2011, it reached its 7th published volume. At the latest, 8th National Symposium on Paleontology, organised in Bucharest in september 2011, a decision was reached by the members of the RSP to transform the proceedings volume into a regular journal with 2 issues per year, aiming to breach the limitations of a proceedings volume and to open towards the entire paleontological scientific community, while still offering a publication platform for the papers presented at fortcoming National Symposia.
