Manuscript format

The text should be in single-column format. Keep the layout of the text as simple as possible. Most formatting codes will be removed and replaced on processing the article. Do not break and hyphenate words. Use the word processor’s options only to justify or center text, bold face, italics, underline, subscripts, and superscripts.

Do not embed “graphically designed” equations or tables, but prepare these using the Word processor’s facility. Do not import the figures or tables into the text file but, instead, indicate their approximate locations directly in the electronic text and on the manuscript.

Footnotes in text are not permitted. Italics are used for expressions of Latin origin. Abbreviations (except standard units of measurements) should be identified on first use.

Pages should be numbered consecutively and organized as follows: Title, Abstract and Keywords, Main text, Acknowledgments, References, Tables, Figures, Graphics and Schemes (with captions).



The title page should include: (1) – title of the article, short and descriptive; (2) – first name and last name of each author; (3) – names of departments and institutions with which authors are associated; (4) – postal address, phone/fax numbers, and e-mail of the corresponding author.

Ensure that phone and fax numbers (with country and area code) are provided in addition to the e-mail and the complete postal address.

Abstract and Keywords

A concise abstract of no more 250 words is required. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the main results and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separate from the article, so it must be able to stand-alone.

Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of 3–6 keywords, preferably taken from Index Medicus or Excerpta Medica Index.




Main text

The manuscript should be written clearly and concisely. The author is responsible for providing the correct nomenclature, which must be consistent and unambiguous. The text should be arranged in the following order: Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion, and Conclusions.

Each section should be clearly marked with a separate, numbered heading and may be numbered down to the third order. The introduction should be a brief overview of the topic. The body of the text should describe the topic in an orderly manner, using subheadings to divide the various sections. A few summary paragraphs should conclude the paper.



Place acknowledgments, including information on grants received, before the references, in a separate section, and not as a footnote on the title page.



Responsibility for the accuracy of bibliographic citations lies entirely with the authors. Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). Any references cited in the abstract must be given in full. Unpublished results and personal communications should not be in the reference list, but may be mentioned in the text. Citation of a reference as “in press” implies that the item has been accepted for publication.References (indicated by numbers in square brackets) should be cited in consecutive order of their appearance in the text. The complete references must be reproduced at the end of the manuscript.


List names of all the authors. References should be typed in the following style:

Tables, Figures and Schemes

Tables, Figures and Schemes are to be typed, in this order, on separate pages at the end of the manuscript. Ensure that each illustration or table has a caption attached, which should comprise a brief title and a description. Keep text in the illustrations themselves to a minimum, but explain all symbols and abbreviations used.

Tables should be on separate sheets, one table per sheet, and should bear a short descriptive title. Number tables consecutively, in accordance with their appearance in the text. Place footnotes to tables below the table body and indicate them with superscript lowercase letters. Avoid vertical rules and shading. Be sparing in the use of tables and ensure that the data presented in tables do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article. Figures and Schemes should be cited and consecutively numbered with Arabic numerals, according to their order of appearance in the main text. Mark the appropriate position of a figure/scheme in the text. Graphics and schemes are suitable for mention as figures. Ensure that high-resolution graphics files are provided, even if the graphic appears as part of your normal word-processed text file.

Articles and any other material published in the Romanian Journal of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry represent the opinions of the author(s) and should not be construed to reflect the opinions of the Editor and the Publisher.

Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as a part of a published lecture or academic thesis), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and tacitly or explicitly by the responsible authorities where the work was carried out, and that, if accepted, it will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in English or in any other language, without the written consent of the Publisher.

Contributions are accepted on the understanding that the authors have obtained the necessary authority for publication. Submission of multi-authored manuscripts implies the consent of each of the authors. The Publisher will assume that the senior or corresponding author has specifically obtained the approval of all other co-authors to submit the article to this journal.
