Peer Review Policy

Philosophy, Psychiatry, and Psychology (PPP) is a double-blind, peer-reviewed international quarterly journal focusing on philosophical scholarship at the interface of philosophy and clinical mental health. Submissions are English-only and are submitted through the ScholarOne online system, and are typically reviewed within six weeks of submission. The Managing Editor and Editor-In Chief screen all submissions for goodness of fit with the Journal focus, and advise potential authors if the submission is content-inappropriate or noncompliant with the journal’s manuscript style and formatting. Submissions are evaluated using four broad criteria:  relevance to the journal focus, scholarly rigor, clarity of writing, and originality of the work. PPP does not publish material published elsewhere; though on occasion, PPP will publish English translations of previously published works of historical significance, with suitable copyright permissions secured by the author and/or translator. PPP does not publish book reviews, though thematic review articles incorporating multiple scholarly works are considered. PPP does not accept simultaneous submissions to other journals. The journal also publishes editor-invited commentaries which are not peer-reviewed but receive editorial review for acceptability. The categories of editorial decisions include Acceptance, Minor Revision, Major Revision, and Rejection. Articles which are recommended for revision and resubmission should be accompanied by a cover letter summarizing the changes, and resubmissions may be reviewed at the editor’s level or sent out for an additional round of peer-review when indicated.
