Author Guidelines

The journal accepts submissions on a rolling basis. Filosofia Unisinos - Unisinos Journal of Philosophy (UJP) has no article processing charges or article submission charges.

Articles must be original, unpublished, and not under consideration for publication anywhere else and can be written in Portuguese, English or Spanish.

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

The submissions must be sent electronically in Microsoft Word or RTF format, following the steps of a system that aims to give assistance in each phase of the editorial process.

The publication 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 identification of authorship of the work must be removed from the file, ensuring UJP’s confidentiality criteria.

The final acceptance of the article depends on:

  • The recommendation of the reviewers;
  • That the authors carry out the necessary corrections;
  • And final approval by the Editorial Board, which decision will recommend one of the following options:
    1. Accept submission;
    2. Revisions required;
    3. Resubmit for review;
    4. Resubmit elsewhere;
    5. Decline submission.
