History of Philosophy Quarterly
Contributions may be as short as 3,000 words or as long as 8,000 including endnotes and bibliography. All manuscripts should be composed with proper pagination, wide margins, and double spacing between lines. Endnotes should be used sparingly and should be numbered consecutively, typed with wide margins and double spacing, placed at the end of the paper. Authors should follow Chicago Manual of Style (17th ed.). A brief abstract and a list of key words should be included at the beginning of the article. Please follow the style described in the style sheet here. Submissions should be made at here. If there are any difficulties please contact the editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.The journal will consider only papers whose authors certify that, while under consideration at HPQ, their papers will not be submitted elsewhere for consideration. A statement to this effect must be included in the email or cover letter.
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.
Please read Style Sheet available here, and follow the guidelines when writing a paper for this journal.
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.
