Asian Journal of Philosophy – a new Asia-based journal published by Springer Nature and journal launch

The journal publishes high-quality articles in any area of analytic philosophy, but with an emphasis on epistemology, metaphysics, ethics, meta-ethics, value theory, action theory, and the philosophies of mind, language, logic, technology, and mathematics.

The mission of Asian Journal of Philosophy is to serve as a leading platform for analytic philosophy in Asia both in an inward and in an outward sense. Within Asia the journal aims to be a visible go-to outlet for analytic philosophers to communicate high-quality research and share it with the global community. Outside Asia the journal aims to serve as an authoritative reflection of cutting-edge research in Asia and as an attractive publication outlet for promoting scholarly work to the large community of researchers working in the region.

An event series has been organized in order to mark the launching of the journal. The series is generously sponsored by Underwood International College, Yonsei University, South Korea.

Best wishes,
Editor-in-Chief: Nikolaj Jang Lee Linding Pedersen (Yonsei University).
Associate Editors: Jie Gao (Zhejiang University), Masashi Kasaki (Hiroshima University), Weng Hong Tang (National University of Singapore).
