Topical Collections

The European Journal for Philosophy of Science is excited to announce a new Topical Collections series. A topical collection is a special journal issues that collect papers on a specific philosophical problem, theme, or author. Collecting such an issue may be triggered by the organization of a specialized conference, a symposium, or a project. The first topical collection was a selection of papers from EPSA17, the 6th biennial conference of the EPSA.

Latest collections

A list of all our Topical Collections and their current status is given below:

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. Contact us…

New Topical Collections?

For the moment, we are not accepting proposals for special issues/topical collections. We expect to be open for proposals again in 2021.

Instructions for Authors

Papers should be submitted through the EJPS Editorial Manager under the dedicated heading for each collection. Please select this heading when submitting the manuscript.

Submitted papers are peer-reviewed as per usual journal practice. Typically, two reviewers will be assigned to each paper and final decisions will be taken by EJPS Editors in Chief, following the recommendation of the Guest Editor(s), which is based on the reviewers’ reports. Please prepare papers for masked review.

For more information about how Topical Collections are assembled or to submit a proposal yourself, please visit the EJPS page on Springer.
