"Beide Hefte [des Journal of Romanian Studies] zeigen alles in allem erfreulich quellengesättigte und gängige Muster aufbrechende/ergänzende Beiträge zu den beiden 100. Jahrestagen von 1918 und 1919. Die Abwechslung von Themenheften mit Gasteditoren und thematisch offenen Ausgaben gewähren sowohl Vertiefung als auch einen breiten Themenhorizont. Sie lassen die Erwartung berechtigt erscheinen, dass mit seinen Reviews und Beiträgen sich das Journal of Romanian Studies zu einem unentbehrlichen Forum der Rumänien-Forschung machen wird."—Markus Bauer,, 26.05.2021
