The first articles about Economy were published in the 1978 Annals of “Dunarea de Jos” University of Galati – Fascicle I. Socio-Humanistic Sciences, ISSN 1220-0753. In 1994, the Fascicle turned into an independent magazine that was called Management, Economy and Socio-Humanistic Sciences, ISSN 1221-4647. This magazine was published yearly, undergoing the changes that occurred within the “Dunarea de Jos” University, such as the emergence of a new faculty, i.e. the Faculty of Administrative and Commercial Law. In 1995, the magazine changed its name into the Annals of “Dunarea de Jos” University of Galati – Fascicle I. Economy, ISSN 1224-9351. From 2003 up to the present day, the magazine has been published under the name of Economics and Applied Informatics, ISSN 1584-0409, preserving its name of Fascicle I. In 2007, the magazine was given toward coordination and scientific management to the Development Strategies for Competitive Economic Systems - STRATEC Research Centre, in order to disperse the results obtained by the member-researchers of the above mentioned research centre.
