Focus and Scope

JFFP, though rooted in the discipline of philosophy, also invites interdisciplinary extensions and explorations inspired by philosophical thought.
Peer Review Process
The Journal of French and Francophone Philsophy adheres to a policy of double-blind peer review. After an initial screening process, each manuscript will be reviewed by qualified reviewers, and our goal will be to provide substantive feedback to authors within two to three months. In order to ensure appropriate review, the author name(s) should appear only on the title page, references to any author's prior work should be masked, and internal identifications in the text should be removed. Manuscripts that have already been published or are currently under review elsewhere should not be submitted.
The Journal of French and Francophone Philosophy is published twice yearly.
