The journal “Litua. Studies and research” is a scientific publication created under the auspices of “Alexandru Ștefulescu” Gorj County Museum which is a cultural institution founded on July 16, 1894. Two years later, in April 1896 “The Publications of the Gorj County Museum-Litua” was published and contained the scientific research of the founding members.
Since 1978, the journal “Litua. Studies and research” was republished in a new series, but, due to objective conditions, the results of the research carried out during two or three years were published in a single volume (1978-2009). The journal has been published annually since 2011, and the topic has been maintained in all issues, covering fields such as archeology, history, ethnography, folklore, museology, geology, museum pedagogy, museology, documentary and memoir.
