Focus and Scope

European Journal for Philosophy of Religion (EJPR) is a peer-reviewed international journal devoted to the problems of the philosophy of religion. 

EJPR is published quarterly. Space is devoted to articles, of which more than 30 are published each year, exclusively in English. The journal contains also a Discussions and Replies section, and a Book Reviews section, which may include review articles and shorter notes.

Although the journal is committed to no position and invites papers without restriction of philosophical method or orientation, it encourages publication of papers in which clear philosophical questions are being asked, a clear thesis is defended, and clear arguments are given.

EJPR has been founded with the aim of fostering the development of philosophy of religion in Europe and elsewhere. 

Peer Review Process

The submitted articles must be ready for blind review and must bear no trace of the author’s identity. The initial selection of papers will be made by the Editor and the Editorial Board. Suggestions for revision will be send to the authors of the papers recommended for publication after revision. We pride ourselves on supplying our authors with substantial referee reports, subject to a turnaround time of about three months until the first decision. Accepted work is typically published within a year of acceptance. 

 

Publication Frequency

EJPR is published quarterly, in Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. More than 30 articles and discussions are published each year.

Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement

European Journal for Philosophy of Religion (EJPR) is committed to maintaining the highest ethical standards. In order to ensure the outcome of providing our readers with an academic journal of high quality, EJPR is guided by the following principles:
The editors of EJPR are responsible for deciding which of the articles submitted to the journal should be published. In evaluating the submitted works, the editors should limit themselves only to the intellectual content. The editors can choose to ignore any material that breaks legal requirements regarding libel, copyright infringement and plagiarism. The editors must ensure the confidentiality of the submitted works until they are published, except in the case of suspicion of double submission. In case the editors decide not to publish a material, the manuscript should not be used for other purposes without the express written consent of the author. The editor of a submitted manuscript must not have a stake in the authors.
The reviewers of EJPR assist the editors in taking the decision of publishing a submitted manuscript. The reviewers are bound to treat the manuscript received for peer reviewing as confidential, and must not use the information obtained through peer review for personal advantage. The reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.
The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works. When the authors use other materials, sources should be appropriately cited. Any attempt of plagiarism should be followed by the rejection of the submitted manuscript. Authors should not submit the same work or describe essentially the same research in more than one journal. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behavior, unless otherwise specified.
