Style and guide for authors

Noesis is a periodic publication, issued in foreign languages by the Romanian Committee for History and Philosophy of Science and Technique (CRIFST) and it is meant for the publishing of studies regarding “History and Philosophy of Science and Technique” or of scientific papers presented at CRIFST scientific sessions by the territorial Branches and Subsidiaries, and also of other articles issued by CRIFST members and others.

The issuing of papers must take into account the clarification of technical terms. In case technical details cannot be avoided, they are to be disclosed within the annexes, thus making the text accessible to readers that are not specialized in that very field. Disclosing various formalizations is accepted, but they are to be also exposed within the annexes. Nevertheless, in case that the formalization is extremely important, it can be disclosed within the text, but one should add clear interpretations and examples.

The topics of papers and studies must be according to the objectives established by the Regulations of CRIFST but other topics will be considered at the extent of the importance of the articles content for the History and Philosophy of Science and Technique.

Editing requirements

The papers are to be written in foreign languages, either English or French, in MS Word ’97 or more recent, Standard A4 (Top 2 cm, bottom 2 cm, left 3 cm, right 3 cm, gutter 0 cm, header 0.8 cm, footer 0.8 cm) font Times New Roman 14.

Number of pages must not exceed 12-14. Exceptionally papers of 18-20 pages are accepted (including annexes and bibliography).

  2. Papers that are not issued according to these rules are not to be published.
  3. When sending the paper authors must mention THEIR PHONE NUMBER AND E-MAIL ADDRESS, in order for the Editorial Board to send messages (if necessary).
