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. Its 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.

Review Process: In order to fulfill its mission, the JPE uses a double-anonymized review process and referees include members of the Society for Philosophy of Emotion, which is constituted by local (U.S.) and international experts in a variety of disciplines and areas of philosophy. Referees are also asked to use the following JPE Referee Guidelines when refereeing a paper.
