„The Annals of Bukovina" were issued in 1994 under the auspices of the Romanian Academy Publishing House and were printed in Bucharest. The periodical (17 x 24 cm) is issued under the same circumstances today, half-yearly and with a variable number of pages.
The year of the founding of the periodical was initially set to be 1993. The number 1 of the periodical "Annals of Bucovina" could not be actually printed, the volume receiving a negative opinion. The activity report of the „Bukovina” Institute (at that time under the name of Bukovina Study Centre) from in 1993 states that „this issue is, in fact, the number 2 of our magazine, because the first issue, comprising in more than 300 pages studies and articles of ancient and medieval history, was prevented from appearing for controversial reasons”. The report on “The Annals of Bukovina”, I, 1, 1993, written on September 23, 1993 by the university professor dr. Ștefan S. Gorovei, did, however, a real service to the newly established institution in Bucovina. The constructive criticism helped the editorial board to revise the concept of the periodical, which became of great interest to those preoccupied by the history of Bukovina (scientists, researchers, students etc.) The typed manuscript of "Annals of Bucovina", year I, no. 1, [January – June] 1993 is kept in the archives of the „Bukovina” Institute in Rădăuți.
The first printed volume of „The Annals of Bukovina” (1/1994) has 234 pages and the second 308. Until the end of the last decade, "The Annals of Bukovina" appeared with a number of about 250 pages. Beginning with the year 2000, the number of pages varies between 300 and 424 pages. Since 2009 each issue of "The Annals of Bukovina” is limited to 350 pages.
