 A new section of

Filosofia Unisinos - Unisinos Journal of Philosophy 


Philosophy South is a special section of the Brazilian philosophy journal Unisinos Journal of Philosophy (Filosofia Unisinos, ISSN: 1984-8234) dedicated to short-length papers written in English. We seek to publish clear and concise scholarly works from all philosophical traditions that advance an original thesis. 


Our parent journal Unisinos Journal of Philosophy (Filosofia Unisinos) is a fully peer-reviewed, open-access publication hosted by Unisinos, a Jesuit University in the South of Brazil. It is committed to publishing papers of high academic quality accessible to a wide audience, and it is the single publication from Brazil, and one of the few in Latin America, indexed in both Isis-Web of Science and Scopus.


Philosophy South have commenced with Unisinos Journal of Philosophy’s first issue of 2016 (Vol. 17), Winter issue for the Southern Hemisphere and Summer issue for the Northern Hemisphere. In this first year we have received almost 70 submissions from all over the world, published 19 of them and awarded three with $300.



Yearly Essay PrizePhilosophy South is now a permanent section of the UJP and we will secured an 

yearly essay prize of $500 



for the best contribution published in the Philosophy South section in the three issues of a UJP volume.



For those from Brazil, Latin America, and elsewhere who are not native English speakers, we will continue to offer our free editing service to improve the style of accepted papers. The aim, as with our parent journal, is to remove all obstacles restricting the communication of philosophical ideas between the North and the South.



All submissions will be subjected to rigorous double blind review. Submissions should be appropriately anonymized, written in English, and not more than 5,000 words in length. Contributions may be submitted through our website. For more information about layout, style, and the submission and review process, please see the Instructions for Authors:




Philosophy South is committed to a speedy and author-friendly review process; in most cases, the editors will notify the authors of their decision within four months.
