Bamboo and Silk is a peer-reviewed academic journal sponsored by the Center of Bamboo and Silk Manuscripts of Wuhan University. Based on unearthed Chinese bamboo and silk manuscripts from the Warring States period (476–221 BC) and Qin (221–206BC), Han (206BC–220 AD), Wei (220–265 AD) and Jin (265–420 AD) Dynasties, this journal focuses on studies of character identification and textual reconstitution, and studies of the social, political, economic and legal systems as well as ideology, culture, language, customs and other aspects reflected by these manuscripts. The journal includes research articles on bamboo and silk manuscripts and book reviews. All articles are peer reviewed by anonymous outside experts as well as by the editorial board, and reflect the current state of international academic research issues on Chinese bamboo and silk manuscripts.

Bamboo and Silk is primarily based on Jian Bo 簡帛, a Chinese journal that was initially published in 2006 by Shanghai Chinese Classics Publishing House Co., Ltd., with some articles chosen from Jian Bo 簡帛 and translated into English. The journal accepts submissions in English as well.

As of 2021, Brill Research Perspectives in Critical Theory is no longer published as a journal by Brill, but will continue as a book series. Brill Research Perspectives in Critical Theory offers a comprehensive reference resource for scholars and students working in the areas of philosophy, critical theory, aesthetics, cultural and literary theory, political and social theory. The journal provides in-depth scholarly articles on the main issues and figures in critical theory understood in its broadest terms. This includes the long historical legacy of critique from Rousseau, Kant, the Romantics, Hegel and Marx, through to Western Marxism and the Frankfurt School, as well as contemporary French Critical Theory, Feminist and Critical Race Theory.

The articles within the journal also examine important intersections between critical and political theory, aesthetics, cultural and literary theory. The resource covers and explains the most central terms and approaches to critical theory as well as important intellectual movements and influences. Each issue is fully peer-reviewed and referenced and provides the most up-to-date research in the area. The Brill Research Perspectives in Critical Theory is an invaluable resource for scholars wishing to draw on the latest research, as well as a dynamic resource for teaching and for students working in critical theories and related fields.

Comparative Political Theory aims to become the premier academic journal dedicated to fostering dialogue among intellectual traditions from across the globe to address vexing social and political problems.

The academic discipline of political theory largely formed in English-speaking countries in the twentieth century. Political theorists such as John Rawls, Leo Strauss, Isaiah Berlin, and Hannah Arendt, as well as the main authors that they read, became the canon. Political theorists sometimes read authors from China, India, Russia, Mexico, Ghana, Turkey, and elsewhere, but the discipline has been Euro-American-centric.

This journal aims to address this imbalance. One way is to publish work on important authors, texts, arguments, schools, and traditions from around the world. A second way is to publish work that fosters conversations between social and political theorists within and outside of the West. In both cases, authors should explain how the work addresses pressing global problems.

Comparative Political Theory welcomes submissions from around the world that use diverse methodologies, that situate their arguments in different traditions, that can be more theoretical or more empirical, and so forth. The main objective is to shed new light on social and political affairs.

Comparative Political Theory welcomes the following types of submissions:
• Research articles (maximum of 9,000 words, though exceptions may be made);
• Review essays (maximum of 4,000 words);
• Single-book reviews (maximum of 2,000 words)

For editorial queries and proposals, please contact the Comparative Political Theory Editorial Office.

Editor-in-Chief:
Contemporary Pragmatism (COPR) is an interdisciplinary, international journal for discussions of applying pragmatism, broadly understood, to today's issues. Contemporary Pragmatism will consider articles about pragmatism written from the standpoint of any tradition and perspective. Contemporary Pragmatism especially seeks original explorations and critiques of pragmatism, and also of pragmatism's relations with humanism, naturalism, and analytic philosophy. Contemporary Pragmatism cannot consider submissions that principally interpret or critique historical figures of American philosophy, although applications of past thought to contemporary issues are sought. Contemporary Pragmatism welcomes contributions dealing with current issues in any field of philosophical inquiry, from epistemology, philosophy of language, metaphysics and philosophy of science, and philosophy of mind and action, to the areas of theoretical and applied ethics, aesthetics, social & political philosophy, philosophy of religion, and philosophy of the social sciences. Contemporary Pragmatism encourages work having an interdisciplinary orientation, establishing bridges between pragmatic philosophy and, for example, theology, psychology, pedagogy, sociology, economics, medicine, political science, or international relations.

Editorial questions, suggestions about special issues or book reviews, and other queries should be sent to: editorial@pragmatism.org.

Book Reviews:
Publishers can contact jshook@pragmatism.org about mailing new books. Instructions for book reviewers is to be found on pragmatism.org.

Editor-in-Chief:
Culture and Dialogue is an international peer-reviewed journal of cross-cultural philosophy and humanities that is published semi-annually and electronically only as of 2024. The journal seeks to encourage and promote research in the type of philosophy and theory that sees dialogue as a fundamental ingredient of cultural formations, that is to say the ways cultures become apparent and ultimately identifiable. What is meant here by culture is a particular manifestation of human achievement in the arts, languages, forms of expression (whether secular or religious), and customs of all kinds including political ones.

Dialogue, in this context, means a mode of relationship that lets cultural formations unfold by bringing together human beings and, for example, their natural environment, their historical past, traditions, external cultural influences, contemporary trends, other communities, or simply other persons in conversation.

Culture and Dialogue provides a forum for researchers from philosophy as well as other disciplines, who study cultural formations dialogically, through comparative analysis, or within the tradition of hermeneutics. The journal publishes one volume of two issues electronically each year. The first issue welcomes manuscripts that consider the theme of culture and dialogue in all its forms, from all perspectives, and through all methods. The second issue seeks to bring manuscripts together with a common denominator such as “Philosophy and the Dialogue,” “Art in Conversation,” “Comparing Cultures,” or “Dialogical Ethics.” The language of the journal is English, but submissions in other languages including German, Chinese, French and Japanese may be considered for guest-edited issues.

The journal does not necessarily endorse the views expressed or the facts presented by authors in their essays or in the works cited.

Culture and Dialogue is endorsed by the UNESCO Chair in Comparative Studies of Spiritual Traditions, Their Specific Cultures and Interreligious Dialogue. The journal is also the publishing platform of the International Research Group for Culture and Dialogue (website: IRGCD).

Founded in 1964, the Danish Yearbook of Philosophy is a peer-reviewed journal published for the Danish Philosophical Society. Reflecting the broad interpretation of philosophy institutionalized internationally at universities, the Yearbook aims to cover a broad ground in relation to philosophical schools, styles and traditions and welcomes all submissions of general philosophical interest of a high scholarly standard. The journal publishes in English, German and French.

The Yearbook may dedicate a section or a whole issue to a specific theme. Prospective guest editors are encouraged to write to the Editor-in-Chief.

The general aim of the Yearbook is still, as it was originally, to stimulate the professional interaction between Danish university philosophers and their international colleagues.

A particular mission of the Yearbook is the publication of articles relating to Danish academic philosophy in at least one of the following senses:

1.) The theme or subject of the article is a Danish philosopher or a school of philosophy that has, or has had, a significant representation in Denmark. 2.) The activity behind the article is linked to Denmark, typically in the form of a presentation originally delivered in Denmark, e.g. as a keynote address, an invited guest lecture, a contribution to a seminar etc. 3.) The author of the article is a Danish philosopher, a philosopher based in Denmark, or connected to Denmark in some other way.

An additional mission is to review books published in English, German or French by Danish philosophers, or philosophers with strong ties to Denmark. Reviewers must be non-Danish philosophers. Authors may contact the review editor.
