JMPhil is an open access philosophy journal that publishes papers on the history of philosophy from the 16th century through the 18th century up to, but not including, Kant. We also will consider submissions on under-represented areas in late 18th and 19th century philosophy on a case by case basis. (If you’re not sure whether your paper fits this description, please email us.) We hope to expand to Kant and the 19th century in the future.
There is no word limit on submissions, although economy of expression is encouraged. We aim to review submissions fairly and quickly. Reviewing is double blind. All submissions that fit the scope of the journal and meet basic norms of scholarly publishing will be sent out for review, and we send submissions to two reviewers whenever possible. We aim for a time to decision of less than eight weeks for all papers.
