Topical Collections

The European Journal for Philosophy of Science is excited to announce a new Topical Collections series. These are a series of special journal issues that collect papers on a given philosophical topic, theme, author, or problem. Collecting such an issue may be triggered by the organization of a specialized conference, a symposium, or a project. For instance, the first Topical Collection is a volume of Selected Papers from EPSA17, the 6th biennial conference of the EPSA held at the University of Exeter in 2017.

For more information about how Topical Collections are assembled or to submit a proposal yourself, please visit the EJPS page on Springer.

For those who may be currently preparing a proposal, we notify you that we will only accept proposals for consideration submitted by 31 July 2019.  We will select among proposals received by that date.
