KRITERION -- Journal of Philosophy is a forum for rational discussion in any field of philosophy. As dedicated to the analytic tradition, it publishes highly understandable and criticizable work making use of clear and thorough argumentation. We belief that this is the only possible way of contributing to progress in philosophy, which is the journal's main objective.
The journal was founded in 1991. It accepts contributions in English (preferred) or German language. All contributions go through a double-blind peer review process. Since we especially want to encourage early career authors, the journal's policy is to reach a decision on every submission within three weeks of receipt. The journal is known for providing friendly and helpful reviewer comments and suggestions of how to improve manuscripts.
KRITERION -- Journal of Philosophy contributes to funding the annual international SOPhiA graduate conferences, which are conducted at the Department of Philosophy at the University of Salzburg since 2010.
Among our most cited authors are: David Armstrong, Wilhelm Essler, Norbert Hoerster, Karel Lambert, Hannes Leitgeb, Jürgen Mittelstraß, Gerhard Schurz, Peter Simons, Peter Singer, Achille Varzi, Paul Weingartner, Jan Wolenski, Jean-Claude Wolf.
The journal is indexed and abstracted by The Philosopher's Index and EBSCO. Information about the journal's ranking is available at SJR. KRITERION -- Journal of Philosophy was also approved of satisfying the ERIH (European Reference Index for the Humanities) criteria: ERIH PLUS.
