Journal of Philosophical Research


The Journal of Philosophical Research encourages submissions in all areas of philosophy and aims to publish first-rate articles on a diversity of topics. We consider original articles 10,000 words in length (including notes and references) or less. JPR is open to considering longer manuscripts of exceptional quality, with the editor’s permission. Contact Heather Battaly for more information. The journal only considers submissions that are not published elsewhere and not currently under consideration at another journal. We aim to reach decisions on submissions in 3-4 months. JPR is peer-reviewed. Review is double-anonymous. This means that neither authors nor reviewers know one another’s identities.

Anonymous Review

Submitted manuscripts must be prepared for anonymous review. This means that the author's name and other identifying information must be removed from the text and replaced with "deleted for anonymous review". Identifying information must also be removed from other locations, such as the "Properties" section in a Word file.

Submission Format

Manuscripts should be submitted in Word format (.doc, .docx, .rtf). Submissions must contain an abstract (up to 150 words), and a reference list. Any reasonable formatting style for notes and references is fine at the time of submission. If the manuscript is accepted for publication the author will be asked to bring it into line with the journal's style (Chicago Manual of Style). A helpful resource on The Chicago Manual of Style is available here. Submissions should be in English.

Submission Procedure

JPR is now accepting manuscripts online through the journal's ScholarOne manuscript submission site:

It is not necessary to submit a printed copy of the manuscript by mail. Printed copies of submitted manuscripts will not be returned.
