Abstract

In her article "Social Science Journals in Interwar Romania and the U.S. Model of Sociology" Valentina Pricopie analyzes the US-American presence in two journals of the Bucharest School of Sociology between the two world wars, as well as the information provided by US articles with regard to the US-American sociological model and its developments. Pricopie's analysis suggests strong academic connections, cooperation, and consistent exchange of academic knowledge between the two schools of thought. The analysis is based a quantitative study of the archives including the frequency of occurrence of items in thirty-one issues of Arhiva pentru Ştiinţa şi Reforma Socială (Archive for Science and Social Reform) and twenty-six issues of Sociologie Românească (Romanian Sociology). Pricopie's conclusion is that the development of the Romanian school of sociology was in line not only with what was happening in schools of sociology in Europe, but also with the theoretical developments of U.S. sociology.
