The Romanian Journal of Psychoanalysis was founded in 2007, on the occasion of the International Colloquium of Psychoanalysis “Thinking Hate and Violence” (Bucharest, 2008), at the initiative of the Romanian psychoanalyst Nadia Bujor from the Psychoanalytic Society in Paris. Brînduşa Orăşanu, Vera Şandor and Vasile Dem Zamfirescu, from the Romanian Society of Psychoanalysis were the founders, as well as the Romanian Scientific Committee of this journal. The purpose of the journal is to stimulate psychoanalytic research and scientific communication in this field, both between Romanian psychoanalysts as well as between them and their foreign peers. It is for this reason that the articles are published exclusively in French or English.

The first issue of the journal was published in 2008, and its publication continued at a rate of one issue per year till 2011, when two issues per year were published. The Editing Commitee and the Scientific Committee consist of renowned specialists, from Romania and other European countries, with tradition in this field.

The journal constitutes a space of dialogue between psychoanalysts of different theoretical orientations, with clinical experience specific to particular historical contexts in the practice and development of psychoanalysis, as well as a space for interdisciplinary dialogue, offering new openings towards related fields, such as the psychotherapy of psychoanalytic orientation or towards complementary sciences, such as anthropology or philosophy. The journal includes mainly original articles of theoretical and clinical psychoanalysis, as well as articles based on applied reserch, review articles and also book reviews, on psychoanalytic field. The materials are subject to editorial evaluation and anonymous review.

From the very beginning, there was a constant influx of prestigious foreign contributors, many of whom with relevant academic affiliations (the University of East London, the University of Pavia, Italy, Paris 7 University, Ulm University, Germany, etc.) which enabled indexing the publication in international databases such as Contemporary Science Association, Ulrich’s Periodicals Directory or EBSCO.
