Filosofia Theoretica: Journal of African Philosophy, Culture and Religions. ISSN: 2276-8386 (Print) E-ISSN: 2408-5987 (Online)
This journal operates three layers of review, one editorial review and a double-blind peer-review process, where two anonymous reviewers review anonymised manuscripts. Authors should expect the Editor to reach (and inform them of) a decision, including recommending corrections, if any, or acceptance/rejection of any manuscript, within three months of receipt. It is important to note that Editors are not committed to the views expressed in articles. Authors must take the time to proofread their works. Poorly written and incoherent articles would be summarily rejected during Editorial review. Where an editor judges a manuscript to be of high quality after editorial review, one blind review only may be carried out. Only manuscripts that meet the required standard would move on to the peer review stage.
Instructions for Authors
All manuscripts (in English) must be original (neither plagiarised nor under consideration elsewhere) and submitted to the editor in MS word format via the submission link or e-mail: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org . While English is the preferred language for publication, we understand that authors may use certain non-english phrases. Where such is the case, English translations in footnotes or in parenthesis is usually required.
Full original articles are expected to be between 4000 – 6000 words (exceptions can be made where absolutely necessary). Short conversations can be between 2000-4000 words. A concise title (20 words max.) and a 150-200 word abstract are required for both.
Statement of Peer review
Articles submitted to this journal are subjected to an external double, and in rare cases, single blind review following a satisfactory internal editorial review. Authors should submit an anonymised version of their article as well as a separate title page that includes the title of their article, their names, University affiliation, email address, ORCID number, in that order.
Authors are expected to format their manuscript as directed in the CSP reference style. We do not accept endnotes. Footnotes may be used sparingly.
Authors are expected to STRICTLY follow the CSP referencing style (you can download the CSP reference style at the bottom of the page).
