OUR MISSION

The Journal of Philosophy of Emotion (JPE) aims to be an internationally recognized, open access, philosophy journal specializing in the publication of high-quality, peer-reviewed papers that address philosophical interests on the topic of emotion, broadly construed (e.g., including affect), from a wide range of philosophical or interdisciplinary perspectives, across all traditions. The JPE holds that philosophers of emotion can learn from experts in other areas and disciplines, and vice versa, and is especially interested in work that demonstrate how issues in the philosophy of emotion are relevant to other areas in philosophy and other disciplines, and vice versa. It seeks to encourage an open exchange of ideas by providing a space where interdisciplinary pursuits in the philosophy of emotion can flourish, and it does not promote any specific ideology, school, tradition, or methodology. It also shares the core values of diversity, inclusiveness, collegiality/community, honesty, integrity, the principle of charity, rigorous scholarship, and clarity of content with its affiliated society, the Society for Philosophy of Emotion (SPE).

Academic Integrity, Committment to High Quality Publishing Standards, and Distribution:  The JPE is committed to the principle of academic integrity and high quality standards for publishing. It is a member of Crossref, and will be employing its Reference Linking, Crossmark, Similarity Check, and Cited-By services for all manuscripts. It also employs a double-anonymous peer-review process, with a minumum of two reviewers, for its articles, and either an anonymous or double-anonymous peer-review process, with a minumum of one reviewer, for its book reviews. The JPE will also be applying for inclusion in the Philosopher's Index after its first year of publication.

Peer Review Process: In order to fulfill its mission, the JPE uses a double-anonymized review process and referees include local (U.S.) and international experts in a variety of disciplines and areas of philosophy. All book review mansucripts will be reviewed using either a single- or a double-anonymous review process via the Open Journal Systems platform, contingent on the JPE's needs in order to maintain its publishing standard. Referees are also asked to use the following JPE Referee Guidelines when refereeing a paper.

Accessibility Information: The JPE is dedicated to making its content accessible to as many viewers as possible. It therefore will provide the options of accessing its articles as optical character recognition (OCR) enabled PDF files, that can be easily read by a text to speech application, and as an audio file, preferably read by the author.
