Journal Aim and Scope

Romanian Journal of Information Technology and Automatic Control – RRIA

The Romanian Journal of Information Technology and Automatic Control – RRIA is a scientific journal, open access, published quarterly, edited by the National Institute for Research & Development in Informatics – ICI Bucharest.

Continuing the initiative of the Romanian IT Bulletin – BRI, published in 1980, which, starting in 1991, changed its name to the Romanian Journal of Information Technology and Automatic Control, one could say that the journal has been published continuously for over 40 years.

The Editorial Board Members are researches from the Romanian Academy, the university centers of Bucharest, Iasi, Timișoara, universities or research institutes from the USA, Malaysia, the Republic of Moldova, India, Algeria, as well as ICI Bucharest.

The main objectives of RRIA are to actively support authors (scientific researchers, professors, professionals, but also faculty/university students, post-graduate and PhD students) and to efficiently disseminate the information to the benefit of different specialists (both within the Institute as well as outside of it) with regards to the new technologies, projects, and European and governmental funds opportunities.

Within its pages, the journal offers useful information, case studies, product presentations, best practice examples, events and solutions which can be implemented in different areas such as: business, health, administration, industry, environment protection, alternative energy, information security, information technology, education and culture, by applying the principle that "an informed decision" is a correct decision.

With information technology and automatic control as its' main areas of interest but also with the complementary areas, RRIA publishes in its pages original articles, open access, protected by the copy-right law.

In order to expand the dissemination area of the journal, the abstracts and keywords of the articles have been also published in English (both on paper and on-line version), starting with vol. 17, no. 4, 2007.
