THE JPE IS CURRENTLY MIGRATING TO THE OPEN JOURNAL SYSTEMS PLATFORM AND WILL BE RESTRUCTURING THE STEERING COMMITTEE, AND SO IS NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING ANY NEW SUBMISSIONS. WE WILL RESUME ACCEPTING MANUSCRIPTS FOR PUBLICATION AFTER THE MIGRATION AND RESTRUCTURING HAS BEEN COMPLETED, HOPEFULLY BEFORE THE END OF 2017. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING!

 

Submitting a Manuscript

The JPE welcomes authors to submit high-quality articles that address any problem, question, or concern within the area of philosophy of emotion, broadly construed. The JPE does accept shorter, high-quality articles (3,000 words max) to be published in its Meditations section. It does not publish literature reviews, but it will accept book reviews to be published as meditations. Authors who are interested in providing a complimentary copy of their book in order to have a review of it submitted to the JPE should contact the Society for Philosophy of Emotion. Please see the JPE Mission Statement and Submission Guidelines for more information.

All articles that are submitted to the JPE will be initially vetted by the editorial assistants and the editor-in-chief in order to determine whether or not the manuscript will be able to withstand the FTCOR (open review) process. We recommend authors to take advantage of the various forums that are currently available to academics to receive feedback on their paper prior to submitting it to the JPE. Some available forums are listed below (please note that the JPE is not associated with any of these entities):

  7. Within approximately 10 days of your submission, authors will be contacted regarding the status of their submission via the email address that was provided on the JPE Manuscript Submission Form.
