Study and Research) is an annual peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes papers circumscribing the domains of Holocaust history and memory, including studies on antisemitism, antigypsism, discrimination, racism. The journal has been edited and published by “Elie Wiesel” National Institute for the Study of the Holocaust in Romania since 2009. Scholars from different disciplines engaged in the study of the Holocaust: history, sociology, political sciences, philosophy etc are invited to submit.
The journal is now seeking papers for its upcoming issue in 2020.

3. Brand names are capitalized, but not put in inverted commas.
