Editorial Policy

  1. Unsolicited Contributions
    • • Disputatio welcomes high quality contributions in any area of analytic philosophy (broadly construed), written in English or Portuguese.
    • • Articles should be no longer than 8000 words of main text including bibliography (though longer papers may be considered, the acceptance rate decreases with increasing length).
    • • Disputatio considers all manuscripts on the strict condition that they are not under consideration for publication or in press elsewhere; and that they have not been published in whole or substantial part already.
    • • Disputatio will not consider articles of a purely exegetical or historical nature.
    • • Disputatio considers proposals of special issues and symposia on central significant issues in contemporary philosophy. The articles to be included must be suitably blind reviewed. A detailed proposal is to be made to the Editors of Disputatio, including a brief description of the topic, of why it is relevant, and information about the organizers of the special issue. The proposal should also contain a description of the articles’ selection process. The editorial committee has the final word on the acceptance of the included articles. The committee will give a verdict on the merits of individual articles and of the symposium as a whole. The committee may ask external reviewers for a verdict. The Editors reserve the right to reject one or more articles, or to reject the issue but to accept one or more of the articles that formed part(s) of it.
    • • The Editors reserve the right not to proceed with publication of “accepted” contributions where the author(s) does/do not supply a final version in conformity with the Disputatio’s style.
  1. Other Contributions
    • • Disputatio further publishes the Petrus Hispanus Lectures and the Disputatio Lecture.
