About the European Journal of Analytic Philosophy
The European Journal of Analytic Philosophy (EuJAP) is a Diamond Open Access journal that endorses and subscribes to the values of open science. This means that EuJAP does not charge processing or any kind of production fees to authors of submitted manuscripts.
Since its inception in 2005, EuJAP is published biannually in print, as well as in electronic form. The journal is published exclusively in English. At least one issue per annum is dedicated to a special topic curated by guest editors with having the occasional honour of publishing invited contributions by distinguished scholars.
Download statistics and page visits for each article can be viewed on the Portal of Scientific Journals of Croatia (HRCAK).
EuJAP is open to a broad spectrum of issues ranging from ethics, meta-ethics, applied ethics, political philosophy, epistemology, ontology, philosophy of language, philosophy of logic, philosophy of mathematics, philosophy of science (and special sciences), philosophy of mind, philosophical psychology, philosophy of action, and philosophy of law.
One of the main aims of this journal is providing a forum for philosophical exchange among philosophers from diverse fields within the analytic tradition broadly conceived. (For an example of a paper in the analytic tradition and an account of its history, see this paper.) Manuscripts in history of philosophy are welcome, provided that they are relevant for current philosophical debates. We also accept manuscripts in experimental philosophy.
Another important aim of EuJap is bridging the gap between sciences and humanities. One of our goals includes publishing articles that cross traditional disciplinary barriers, either by relying on scientific methodologies, data, and paradigms to ground arguments within a philosophical debate or by using philosophical tools to analyse and illuminate debates that might be deemed as falling outside the scope of academic philosophy.
EuJAP supports equal opportunity and diversity among its authors. EuJap encourages submissions from researchers from all over the world, regardless of their nationality, race, geographic origin, sex, gender or sexual orientation.
Publication and review process
All received manuscripts are pre-refereed by handling Editors to check whether they fit the scope of the journal and satisfy journal’s publication ethics. Prospective authors are instructed to read our Author Guidelines and Publication Ethics section. All submitted articles are checked for plagiarism via software Turnitin. Submissions that pass a preliminary review by the Editors will undergo double-blind review by at least two referees. The Editors seek advice from a large number of expert referees, including members of the network of Editorial Board and its international advisers. Reviewers are given 30 days to provide their feedback on received manuscripts. Editorial board aspires to come to the first decision within two months of receiving a manuscript. In case of conflicting reviews, the manuscript might be sent to a third reviewer thus extending the reviewing process. The final decision is made by the Editors. In case of special issues, it is the duty of the handling Guest Editors to secure an objective and fair review process. However, Editor-in-Chief reserves the right to provide the final verdict on the received manuscripts, i.e. whether they should be accepted, further revised or rejected. For further information on the review and submission processes, see Instructions for referees and Author Guidelines.
As soon as accepted, manuscripts are published online on EuJAP’s official web site and deposited on the Portal of Scientific Journals of Croatia (HRCAK).
EuJAP subscribes to the publication principles and ethical guidelines of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). For more detailed information see Publication Ethics.
Types of manuscripts accepted in EuJAP
EuJAP publishes papers that fall into one of five categories:
Original scientific article
This is the most common type of article published in EuJAP. It represents an original work where new results or arguments are presented in a way that might be considered as providing a novel contribution to a philosophical debate.
Provides a comprehensive or partial overview of a research problem, domain, or philosophical positions that have already been covered in other published work. Unlike original scientific papers, review articles are not expected to provide an original contribution to a philosophical debate.
Discussions include brief comments that discuss already published work. EuJAP accepts notices that discuss papers published in this journal, but also those published in other venues.
EuJAP accepts reviews of philosophy books typically published within the last three years. Unsolicited reviews of philosophical books are also acceptable. Those who are interested in writing a book review for EuJAP can send us their proposals at firstname.lastname@example.org or reach one of the editors.
Critical notices/book discussions
Critical notices are similar to book reviews in that they discuss recently published books. However, critical notices provide a more in-depth analysis and discussions of key ideas promoted or defended in a book.
Original scientific articles and review articles typically pass a double-blind review process. Other types of articles are managed exclusively by the handling editors. Critical notices can be subjected to a review process by an external referee if the discussion is overly critical or deals with philosophically, scientifically, or socially sensitive issues.
