1221-8413) is the international magazine of the Philosophy Department, Faculty of Philosophy and
Social-Political Sciences of "Alexandru Ioan Cuza" University, Iasi. Between 1955, when it was
created, and 1964, the magazine was published under the title Annals of "A.I. Cuza" University
Iasi. New Series, 3rd section: Social Sciences. From 1967 until 1990, it was called Annals of "A.I.
Cuza" University Iasi. New Series, 3rd section: Social Sciences. Philosophy, and since 1990 it has
been published under the current title. The magazine comes out once a year, at the end of October
(deadline for submissions: May 31), at "Alexandru Ioan Cuza" University Press, Iasi.
We publish original articles from all areas of philosophy, irrespective of the school of thinking the
author belongs to, or his/her philosophical orientation. We only publish articles that have not been
published before, in other magazines or volumes. Republication of an already published article is
possible only in exceptional cases. We also publish translations from classical or contemporary
authors, but this cannot exceed 10% of the total number of texts in each issue. We also publish
book reviews and philosophy conference notes. Debates and academic polemics are also welcome.
Texts can be in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish. Occasionally we publish also texts in
Romanian. The length of texts submitted for publication should be: 3,000-7,000 words for articles,
and 1,000-2,000 words for reviews.
Any opinions expressed in the published texts belong to the authors and do not represent the point
of view of the publishers, editors, or members of the editorial board. Authors must take full
responsibility for the ideas they express in their articles.
Two independent examiners, who are international specialists in philosophy, are in charge with
evaluating the articles. The evaluation period is 2-3 months, and authors will be informed about the
results of the evaluation. Occasionally, authors may be asked to make some changes in their texts
The magazine is distributed internationally, amongst various university libraries from all over the
