Submissions

Eidos. A Journal for Philosophy of Culture publishes original, problem-oriented articles devoted to contemporary philosophy of culture.

The articles should be previously unpublished and they cannot be under consideration for publication elsewhere. Submitting an article, the author declares that it is his or her own original work and, in its current form, it has not been published elsewhere. He/she informs about other scholars’ contribution to the paper, explaining its nature and scope. The author also properly lists all works used in preparing an article, including his/her own works dealing with a similar topic. In accordance with the principles defined by COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics; https://publicationethics.org) every detected case of scientific misconduct especially of plagiarism, “ghost-writing” or “guest authorship” will be reported to the relevant persons and institutions.

The peer-reviewed articles should be submitted in MS Word and should not exceed 60 000 characters with spaces, though in exceptional cases longer contributions can be considered. They should be accompanied by: 1) short abstract (no more than 150 words); 2) 5–7 keywords; 3) a short bio of the author; 4) a list of references; 5) ORCID number (if possible). Book reviews should not exceed 35 000 characters with spaces.

All submitted articles should be well-written in English. It is recommended that they follow the Chicago Manual of Style (in terms of citations, footnotes, bibliography, etc.). The basic editorial guidelines for contributors can be found here.

Every submitted text is to be initially accepted by the two members of the Editorial Staff. They will confirm the reception of the text and inform the author whether – or on what conditions – it can be submitted to the peer-review process. The editors evaluate a paper solely on the basis of its objective value, its quality, and its compliance with the profile of the journal. If their initial assessment is negative a paper is to be rejected. If they differ in opinion, the final decision will be made by the Editor-in-Chief after consulting Deputy Editors-in-Chief and the members of the Advisory Board. If their verdict will be positive, they will send their suggestions for potential improvements to the author. The estimated time for the Editorial Staff’s feedback should not exceed 4 months in the academic year.

After that, the text is subject to the double-blind peer-review process. Based on the referees’ recommendations and suggestions, the Editor-in-Chief makes the final decision regarding the publication. The Editor-in-Chief – with help of the Deputy Editors-in-Chief – monitors the whole editorial process (including peer-review process) ensuring its neutral, honest, and transparent character. He also guarantees that it fulfills, at every stage, the generally accepted ethical standards. He also guarantees the compliance with the copyright law.

We neither pay the authors nor expect any payment for publishing in Eidos. A Journal for Philosophy of Culture. The texts will be available for free on the journal’s website and assigned with their Digital Object Identifier numbers.
