About Us

Editorial policy

        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

        world. The magazine is available free of charge in its electronic format on Faculty of Philosophy

        and Social-Political Sciences' website:

        Authors will receive a hard copy of the magazine and/or 5 excerpts.


        Texts will be submitted by e-mail (as attachments):, and two hard

        copies will be sent by regular post to: "Alexandru Ioan Cuza" University Iasi, Faculty of

        Philosophy and Social-Political Sciences, for the attention of the editorial office of The Scientific

        Annals of "Alexandru Ioan Cuza" University of Iasi (New Series). Philosophy, Bd. Carol I, no. 11,

Technical standards of editing

        Authors should include a 10-line summary of their text in English, together with the English

        Texts should be written in view of a peer-review evaluation type. For this purpose, authors should

        research degree of the author, and the institution that he/she is affiliated with. In view of a pertinent

        evaluation, authors should not include in the text anything that could reveal their identity.
