Starting with no.1/2018, out of the desire to mark the Centenary of the Great Union of Romania, the decision to completely revitalize the format and content of the Journal was taken. Thus, in addition to improving the editorial format, updating and diversifying the structure of the Scientific and Editorial Boards, the Etnosfera Journal started to be issued not only in electronic format, but also in a printed version, with the financial support of the Romanian Academy Publishing House. In addition, starting with 2020, the efforts of indexing the Journal in relevant international databases have started.
