Australasian Journal of Philosophy Reaches Out to Historians


The Australasian Journal of Philosophy (AJP) has been making efforts to publish more history of philosophy.

The journal has long focused on contemporary analytic philosophy, but has recently added two new associate editors to help handle submissions in history.

According to Stephen Hetherington (UNSW), the journal’s editor-in-chief:

AJP has long been internationally known especially for the high quality of the ‘conceptual’/contemporary/analytic philosophy that it publishes. But I’m here to let you know that we welcome philosophically excellent and engaging papers in the history of philosophy, too. In that spirit, we now have two new Associate Editors (AEs) with history specialisations—Margaret Cameron (Melbourne), in mediaeval philosophy, and Frisbee Sheffield (Cambridge), in ancient Greek and ancient Roman philosophy. Margaret and Frisbee will complement the terrific editorial work that is already being done by Deborah Brown (Queensland) and Paisley Livingston (Lingnan), who have been overseeing most of our history submissions. So, I encourage you to think of AJP as a leading journal also for philosophically insightful papers in the history of philosophy.
