Journal of the History of Women Philosophers and Scientists

Founded by Ruth Edith Hagengruber and Mary Ellen Waithe, the Journal of the History of Women Philosophers and Scientists (JHWP) is the world's first journal dedicated to restoring and discussing the history of the texts written by and about women philosophers. The Journal of the History of Women Philosophers and Scientists seeks to integrate women’s intellectual heritage into the canon of philosophy, the humanities, and the natural and social sciences. It publishes peer-reviewed articles about women’s contributions to these disciplines. The time period investigated by articles in the Journal of the History of Women Philosophers and Scientists ranges from 2200 BCE to the 20th Century CE in both the Western and non-Western world. The Journal of the History of Women Philosophers and Scientists publishes biannually thematic issues on particular philosophical topics. Leading philosophers from all over the world in the corresponding fields serve as guest editors of the relevant issue. Each issue is a collected anthology of continuing interest. The Journal of the History of Women Philosophers and Scientists understands itself as a renewal of philosophy and a critical instrument to the hitherto studied traditions.

Despite the enthusiastic reception and interest in the topic, due to unforeseen circumstances which caused delays, the first content of this journal is expected to be published in 2023.
