Author Guidelines

SES Journal of Applied Philosophy is a peer-reviewed journal and does not accept previously published contributions. All submissions will be anonymously reviewed by at least two members of our board of editorial consultants. Authors will receive communication on the reviews issued, guaranteeing the confidentiality of the referees. The paper will be sent to a third reviewer if there is a conflict of decision between the first two reviewers. The final decisions on submissions, including requests for revisions, are the responsibility of the editors.
