Frontiers of Philosophy in China Revises Mission


The Journal Frontiers of Philosophy in China, based at Beijing Normal University, has revised its mission. It is broadening its scope from publishing English translations of Chinese-laguage philosophical scholarship, to publishing English-language philosophical scholarship from all sources. Specifically:

Frontiers of Philosophy in China aims to disseminate new scholarly achievements in the field of broadly defined philosophy, and promote philosophical researches of the highest level by publishing peer-reviewed academic articles that facilitate intensive or extensive communication and cooperation between philosophers in China and abroad. It covers nearly all main branches of philosophy, with priorities given to original works on Chinese philosophy or in comparative studies of Chinese philosophy and other kinds of philosophy in the world.

For more informtion, including information on how to submit articles or book reviews, please see this brochure.

If anyone has any thoughts on ways in which this development is welcome or, perhaps, unwelcome, please share them. (I have to confess some mixed feelings myself, as I have found the previous mission of bringing Chinese-language scholarship to an English-reading audience to be valuable.)
