Instructions for Authors

The Journal of the History of Philosophy is an international journal that publishes articles, notes and discussions, current scholarship reviews and book reviews that concern the history of Western philosophy, broadly conceived. JHP publishes material in English, German, and French. It appears quarterly in January, April, July, and October.


MANUSCRIPTS should be sent as e-mail attachments in Microsoft Worddocuments to jhphil@ualberta.ca. Please include a short abstract. In addition, in order for refereeing process to start, a letter of submission indicating that the work is original, has not appeared in print and is not under consideration elsewhere.


Please also include your present academic/institutional affiliation in your letter of submission.


The average length of an article in JHP is between 10,000 and 14,000 words including bibliography and footnotes. Discussion notes are usually between 4,000 and 6,000 words. All direct and indirect references to the author in the manuscript should be removed. (This includes identifying references which appear unbeknownst to many authors in the document’s “Properties” section, which is found under “File” in MS Word.) Submissions not prepared for blind review will be returned for correction. For citation format, please consult the latest issue and the Chicago Manual of Style.


By submitting a manuscript to JHP, the author acknowledges that the work is original, has not appeared in print and is not under consideration elsewhere.
