The Société de philosophie des sciences launches its journal!
Call for papers for issues 1 and 2
Lato Sensu, revue de la Société de philosophie des sciences
The Société de philosophie des sciences was founded in 2002, with the aim of promoting philosophy of science in the wide sense (comprising such fields as epistemology, philosophy of mind and language, philosophy of medicine and clinical ethics, as well of course as philosophy of social sciences and the closely related areas of rationality, social choice, law, environmental ethics, etc.). Its intended constituency includes scholars working in totally or partially French-speaking countries, as well as those who are interested in interacting with those or in working on authors writing in French. It is thus an international learned society, based in France. Our website provides a more detailed view of its goals and activities, such as the biennial congress, the Duhem Lectures and the yearly Young Scholars’ Prize:
The Société has founded a peer-reviewed, open-access, web-based journal. Entitled Lato Sensu, Revue de la Société de philosophie des sciences, it will appear two or three times a year and will publish texts in French and in English. The main publication criterion will be, of course, scientific excellence, evaluated according to criteria in effect in international journals; particular attention will be given however to originality. Different kinds of contributions, besides the standard paper, such as state-of-the art surveys, positions papers, debates, thematic ensembles, will be considered. We believe this will make the journal more dynamic, more attractive, more useful. Lato Sensu will be advised and supported by a prestigious international Advisory Board, composed in equal numbers of philosophers and scientists.
How to submit:
No length limit is imposed, however the editors could refuse papers judged too long. No element of style or format is imposed for a first submission, except that the manuscript must be anonymous. Therefore the author must avoid any reference that could help the two referees to identify him/her. If the paper is accepted, the author will have to provide a version of the paper in the style required by the editors.
Until the journal’s website is launched, all submissions (joined with an abstract) must be sent, as an attached PDF file, to Alexandre Guay at the following address email@example.com
The deadline for submissions for the first issue is April 25, 2012.
