Ethical Theory and Moral Practice soliciting non-Western submissions

Ethical Theory and Moral Practice encourages submissions on non-western philosophical traditions, especially those that interface contemporary ethics and Asian philosophies. This is part of the editorial team’s ongoing efforts to expand the journal’s repertoire of traditions, ideas and approaches beyond what is typically considered to be mainstream ethics and practical philosophy, and to foster dialogue and engagement across cultures and methodologies. We also invite proposals for book reviews as well as for special issues that engage Asian philosophical traditions. Proposals for special issues are evaluated twice a year through our regular selection process, with deadlines on October 1 and April 1.
