Ethical Theory and Moral Practice: An International Forum is a double-blind peer-reviewed philosophical journal which aims to publish the best work produced in all fields of ethics. It welcomes high quality submissions regardless of the tradition or school of thought from which they derive. As an editorial priority, however, presentations should be accessible to the philosophical community at large and as free as possible of any jargon and formal apparatus.

Ethical Theory and Moral Practice aims to publish work on (meta-)ethical theories that contributes to clarifying and solving practical moral problems, as well as work that makes empirical studies of moral practices and problems relevant for ethical theorizing. It is also interested in work that critically reflects on the plausibility and practicability of ethical theories in the light of insights from empirical sciences. The journal therefore seeks to promote cross-fertilisation between moral philosophy, theology, law, political theory, and more empirical disciplines, such as medicine, economics, sociology, and psychology.

  • Presents the best work produced in all fields of ethics
  • Promotes interdisciplinary cooperation between ethics, theology and empirical disciplines such as medicine, economics, sociology, psychology and law
  • Offers theoretically relevant ‘practical’ ethics and practically relevant ‘theoretical’ ethics

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
