Author Guidelines

The journal accepts submissions on a rolling basis. Filosofia Unisinos has no article processing charges (APC) or article submission charges.

Articles must be original, unpublished, must not be under consideration for publication anywhere else and can be written in Portuguese, English or Spanish.

The journal prints articles, critical book reviews and information related to events. It also reprints papers that are considered fundamental to the area when authorized written permission is given by the original publisher.

Additional guidelines for submitting to the section Philosophy South: Articles must be submitted in English. Articles must be no longer than 5000 words, all included.

The articles must be sent electronically, following the steps of a system that aims to give assistance to the periodicals editing in each phase of the editorial process.

The publication of the article is subjected to the previous approval of the journal's Editorial Board, as well as to peer review made by, at least, two ad hoc reviewers using the double blind review process.

The final acceptance of the article depends on:
