The European Journal of Philosophy of Science publishes groundbreaking works that can deepen understanding of the concepts and methods of the sciences, as they explore increasingly many facets of the world we live in. It is of direct interest to philosophers of science coming from different perspectives, as well as scientists, citizens and policymakers. The journal is interested in articles from all traditions and all backgrounds, as long as they engage with the sciences in a constructive, and critical, way. The journal represents the various longstanding European philosophical traditions engaging with the sciences, but welcomes articles from every part of the world.

 

The EJPS is the official journal for the European Philosophy of Science Association.

  • Barcelona Principles For a Globally Inclusive Philosophy

    New Content Item

    EPSA and EJPS endorse the 'Barcelona Principles For a Globally Inclusive Philosophy’ (https://contesi.wordpress.com/bp/), acknowledging and fostering the richness and diversity of philosophy of science in Europe. We strive to make EPSA meetings and the refereeing process of EJPS as inclusive as possible, using English as a useful vehicular language, not as a filter or barrier to limit presentation of ideas of philosophers whose first language is not English.

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    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.
