International Journal of Philosophical Studies

The International Journal of Philosophical Studies (IJPS) publishes academic articles of the highest quality from both analytic and continental traditions and provides a forum for publishing on a broader range of issues than is currently available in other philosophical journals.

IJPS also publishes annual special issues devoted to key thematic areas or to critical engagements with contemporary philosophers of note. Through its Discussion section, it provides a lively forum for exchange of ideas and encourages dialogue and mutual comprehension across all philosophical traditions.

The journal also contains an extensive book review section, including occasional book symposia and provides critical notices which review major books or themes in depth.

The broad range of IJPS makes it essential reading for professionals in all fields of philosophy, for graduate students and for all those who take an interest in philosophical questions and their historical development.

All submissions should be made online at the International Journal of Philosophical Studies Manuscript Central site . New users should first create an account. Once a user is logged onto the site submissions should be made via the Author Centre.

All manuscripts sent to the journal are independently refereed. Two referee's reports are solicited before a decision to publish is taken. Normally, the readers' unsigned reports are made available to the author of the submission. Refereeing is ‘single-blind’ (i.e. the referees are anonymous to the author but not vice-versa); however, authors who wish to have their submissions ‘double-blind’ refereed should prepare and upload two versions of their manuscript. One should be a complete text, while in the second all document information identifying the author should be removed from files to allow them to be sent anonymously to referees. When uploading files authors will then be able to define the non-anonymous version as ‘File not for review’. Furthermore, the manuscript itself should not bear any marks which could lead to the identification of the author, i.e. all forms of self-reference should be omitted in the submitted manuscript.

Most articles are accepted for publication only after some revision. The Editorial Board is able – in normal circumstances – to reach a decision on a submission within six months.
