The Romanian Library Association started publishing Revista Română de Biblioteconomie și Știința Informării / Romanian Journal of Library and Information Science (RRBSI) in 2005, as a quarterly journal, with thematic issues. Since then, RRBSI has been one of the main academic journals in the field of library and information science, in the Romanian publishing landscape. Looking to extend its addressability and to increase the number of potential readers, in 2010 RRBSI became bilingual, all articles being published both in Romanian and English. The editorial board was also extended, including specialists from other countries. With this issue, the first of 2017, the Romanian Journal of Library and Information Science enters a new era. There are some major changes that we want to share to our readers. (...) Given the similarities regarding the history and development of South-East European libraries, the journal will focus on publishing studies regarding the theory and practice of librarianship in the countries pertaining to this geographical area. In order to support this new direction, the Editorial Board now includes professors and specialists in our field of interest from Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Hungary, Moldavia, Turkey, but also from France and Spain. However, this approach centred on South-East European experiences is not exclusive and other topics may be covered. (Excerpt from `"A New Start" - Editors' Note)
