Newly Open Access Journal: ACTA Mvsei Porolissensis

ACTA Mvsei Porolissensis
ISSN: 1016-2801
Revista Muzeului Judeţean de Istorie şi Artă Zalău, Acta Mvsei Porolissensis a fost editată începând cu anul 1977, odată cu împlinirea a 25 de ani de la înfiinţarea muzeului, având ca scop principal valorificarea şi promovarea patrimoniului cultural al  judeţului Sălaj, în particular, şi al Transilvaniei în general. În acord cu profilul multidisciplinar al instituţiei muzeale, revista a fost structurată pe câteva domenii ale cercetării ştiinţifice: arheologie, conservare-restaurare, istorie, etnografie şi artă. În decursul apariţie sale au existat volume tematice care au reunit lucrări prezentate la manifestări cu caracter naţional sau internaţional, organizate de instituţia noastră. În paginile revistei se regăsesc studii semnate de personalităţi marcante ale cercetării româneşti: Eugen Chirilă, Nicolae Chidioşan, Gheorghe Lazarovici, Nicolae Gudea, Al. V. Matei,  Istvan Ferenczi, Nicolae Edroiu, Ioan Bolovan, Cornel Grad, Constanţa Cristescu, Paul Petrescu, Marius Porumb.

În noul context creat de imperativele  cercetării ştiinţifice, revista îşi propune să extindă sfera colaborărilor pentru a da un plus de valoare acestui demers editorial.
