About the Journal

Aims & Scope

The IAFOR Journal of Ethics, Religion & Philosophy offers the opportunity to continue to advance international scholarship in all themes and overlap of fundamental and applied ethics, religion and philosophy. It aims to encourage both the specific and broad ranging examination of these themes in all research ontological, epistemological and methodological approaches. The Journal welcomes submissions related to a multi-disciplinary approach to addressing moral, ethical, religious and philosophical challenges faced by the world’s researchers, academics, practitioners and professionals within the field. While specific topics that overlap the three themes of the journal are welcome, the journal will also provide a forum of dialogue between different disciplines of law, religion, and philosophy and how these individually or collectively inform or apply in ethical consideration.

The journal editor welcomes submissions related to ethics, religion and philosophy from academics, practitioners and professionals within the field.

Please note that papers already submitted to or published in IAFOR Conference Proceedings are not accepted for publication in any of IAFOR’s journals.

All papers are reviewed equally according to standard peer review processes, regardless of whether or not the authors have attended a related IAFOR conference.

Editorial & Peer Review Process

Initial Screening before peer review

Before being sent for peer review, the Journal Editor will first screen to ensure manuscripts fall within the journal's scope and that they follow the Author Guidelines. Contributors are expected to submit their work in the structure and style of urbane, academic-quality English. The contributors' style of expression must serve to articulate the complex ideas and concepts being brandished, conveying explicit, coherent, unambiguous meaning to scholarly readers. Moreover, manuscripts must have a formal tenor and quality, employing the third-person rather than first-person standpoint (when feasible) while placing emphasis on the research problem being analysed and not on unsubstantiated subjective impressions regarding the issue.

Contributors whose command of English is not at the level outlined above are responsible for having their manuscript corrected by a native-level, English-speaking academic prior to submitting their paper for publication.

Peer review

Once passing the initial screening, manuscripts are sent to at least two anonymous referees, who are members of the Editorial Board, for in-depth peer review.
