Author Guidelines

I. Submitting original material

a. Peer Review process

The NKUA Applied Philosophy Research Lab Press relies on a double blind peer review process to secure the quality, validity and academic integrity of its publications. Submitted manuscripts will be assessed by the Editor (or the Editors) to ensure on the one hand that they fall within the scope of the Press, and on the other that they abide by the academic standards the Press embraces. Manuscripts that meet the Press’s criteria are by standard procedure that guarantees blind review channeled to independent expert reviewers, two at least, for anonymous peer review. The final decision concerning the acceptance for publication rests with the Editor.

b. Submission

Manuscripts are submitted online. If you are unable to submit online for any reason, please submit your manuscript by e-mail to philosophylab@philosophy.uoa.gr, following standard submission procedure (described below)

c. Structure of submitted manuscripts

All manuscripts submitted to the Press for consideration should consist of the following parts:

[1] Title page: it should include a. the name(s) and surname(s) of the author(s) in this order, b. affiliation, e-mail address, ORCID id and correspondence address of the author(s) in this order, c. the title of the manuscript.

  • Use automatic page numbering.
  • Chapters’, subchapters’ and units’ titles should be marked as standard Word level headings. Avoid using more than three levels of displayed headings, unless necessary.
  • Abbreviations should be defined when first mentioned (full term in text – abbreviation in parenthesis).
  • Footnotes should be according to the Chicago Manual of Style / Notes and bibliography style (the quick guide to the style is available at: https://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/tools_citationguide/citation-guide-1.html).

II. Submitting translated material
