The Journal for General Philosophy of Science (JGPS) is a forum for original research and discussion in the philosophy of science. Its subject matter encompasses both general philosophy of science and the specialized philosophies of particular areas of science, such as the philosophy of physics, the philosophy of biology, the philosophy of the social sciences, and the philosophies of the humanities.
Published articles cover the methodological, ontological, and epistemological aspects of these areas of science and science in general. JGPS considers also the social, historical and ethical dimensions of the sciences as the context for understanding current problems of philosophy of science, but JGPS does not publish articles that are exclusively sociological, historical, or ethical in nature.
JGPS aims to bridge gaps between the different sciences, by clarifying the common as well as the divergent methodological and philosophical foundations of the various sciences, taking into account all currently relevant positions in the philosophy of science. JGPS does not subscribe to a particular school of thought or a particular way of doing philosophy of science. Of special interest is the role of a general philosophy of science in an era of increasing diversification of the philosophy of science into specialized philosophies of particular areas of science.
