About the Journal

Edukacja Filozoficzna (in English: Philosophical Education, ISSN 0860-3839) is a scholarly, biannual, peer-reviewed journal published by the University of Warsaw since 1986.

It is addressed to philosophers of various orientations who are who are interested in sharing knowledge. Our aim is to develop an international and pluralistic community in which we educate and inspire each other on a professional level.

Our Authors come from different universities and research institutions in Poland and abroad. We publish scholarly articles, translations of foreign authors (both historical and contemporary) as well as book reviews and announcements (such as reports from important scientific events). So far, we have published 71 issues of our journal.

The journal plans to store all the materials published in electronic version in the Open Access repository of the Polish National Library and possibly other repositories in the event the journal is no longer published.

The journal is financed mainly from the subsidy of the Dean of the Faculty of Philosophy of the University of Warsaw. Where possible, editorial activities can be funded by additional sources, such as funding from public bodies, non-governmental organisations or private entities. The journal does not charge the authors (there are no publication fees nor author fees), does not charge for online access to articles (the articles are fully open), and does not publish advertisements (consequently: does not charge for them). A small part of the revenue comes from the sale of printed copies (however, this revenue does not cover printing costs).
