Job description

During the past year, a large and distinguished international group of anonymous referees for the Journal has emerged to provide substantial coverage of almost all of the major areas and subspecialties in philosophy. Volunteers are always sought in all areas, but most particularly in the philosophy of physics, Enlightenment philosophy, mathematical logic, Logical Positivism, and American Transcendentalism subspecialties.

At this time, there appears to be no extant philosophy journal that adheres to simultaneous policies of blind submissions, double-blind review, and anti-plagiarism. The Berlin Journal of Philosophy therefore innovates in adhering strictly to all three; more on this at http://adrianpiper.com/berlinjphil/origins.shtml. The Berlin Journal of Philosophyis a blind-submission, double-blind, peer-reviewed, open-access journal that will publish articles on all topics in the four traditional major areas of philosophical specialization, namely 

  • epistemology & metaphysics
  • logic
  • value theory 
  • history of philosophy

and their established subspecialties, including

  • epistemology & metaphysics:

philosophy of mind
philosophy of science
philosophy of action
philosophy of language

  • logic:

symbolic logic
mathematical logic
philosophy of logic
philosophy of mathematics
decision theory
game theory
formal epistemology
non-classical logics

  • value theory:

normative ethics
political philosophy
social philosophy
philosophy of social science
philosophy of law

  • history of philosophy:

history of European philosophy
history of Anglo-American philosophy
history of Indian philosophy
history of Chinese philosophy
history of Persian philosophy
history of Arabic philosophy
history of African philosophy

The Journal seeks qualified, experienced, professionally trained philosophers to follow and apply these policies, as anonymous blind referees, in each of the above-listed areas of specialization. Further information and a more complete list of desired subspecialties can be found at http://www.adrianpiper.com/berlinjphil/index.shtml. Philosophers specializing in philosophy of physics, Enlightenment philosophy, Logical Positivism, mathematical logic and American Transcendentalism, please take special note!
