Academic Publishing in Philosophy Journals - Pragmatic Academic Series


When & Where: Friday 19 April, 14:00-16:00, Room 3D, NiG, 1010 Vienna

Publishing in philosophy journals is crucial to establishing a career in academic philosophy, serving as a primary means for scholars to disseminate their research and make meaningful contributions to philosophical discussions. Navigating the landscape of academic publishing, however, can be a daunting process, especially for early-career philosophers.

Publishing in philosophy journals can be challenging due to several factors. Manuscripts must meet high standards of clarity, rigor, and originality to be considered for publication; peer-review processes can be lengthy and demanding; acceptance rates can sometimes be extremely low; journals sometimes prioritize established scholars or hot philosophical trends; and publishing in predatory journals can damage an academic's reputation.

In this Pragmatic Academic Series event, speakers will share insider strategies for navigating the complexities of academic publishing in philosophy journals, covering topics such as deciding on publishing, manuscript preparation, journal selection, and dealing with peer reviewers. Speakers will also share their knowledge of current trends, difficulties, and opportunities in academic publishing in their areas of specialization.

There will be ample time for attendees to ask questions of the speakers.  Attendees are encouraged to submit questions in advance to
