About

History of Philosophy Quarterly (HPQ) specializes in papers that cultivate philosophical history with a strong interaction between contemporary and historical concerns. Contributors regard work in the history of philosophy and in philosophy itself as parts of a seamless whole, treating the work of past philosophers not only in terms of historical inquiry, but also as a means of dealing with issues of ongoing philosophical concern. The journal favors the approach to philosophical history, increasingly prominent in recent years, that refuses to see the boundary between philosophy and its history as an impassable barrier.

HPQ is published by the University of Illinois Press on behalf of North American Philosophical Publications.

Evaluation Procedures

While some submissions are declined upon initial review by the editor as inappropriate, improperly prepared, too long, too weak, etc., the great majority of submissions are sent blind to two philosophers expert in the area of the topic. Reports on submitted articles are provided by members of the HPQ Board of Consults and also by a very large array of expert scholars from across the world. The evaluators are asked to supply a recommendation of accept, decline, revise & resubmit, etc., and comments. They frequently respond with generous reports containing detailed critical comments and suggestions for authors. The varying multi-step process of arranging for expert readers, evaluation, revision, reconsideration, and final revision can take six or more months. The current acceptance rate is ca. 10% and declining due to an increase of highly competitive submissions.

Pre-Publication Policy

The History of Philosophy Quarterly will not publish material that has already appeared elsewhere. This is not at odds with authors sharing their papers with selected individuals whose comments they would welcome or who they wish for other reasons to inform about their work. But it precludes pre-publication with broadcast dissemination, alike in print or electronically in open-access forums such as Academia.edu.
