The Folia Philosophica is edited and published semiannually at the University of Silesia in Katowice, Poland.

The main requirements for the submission are the high quality and originality of the papers.

Format Guidelines

Submissions are accepted in English, German, French, Russian and Polish.

The articles should not exceed the length of 40,000 characters, including footnotes or endnotes.

You are welcome to send us either electronic copy of your paper, addressed to the Editorial Office (see contact details).

Please include:

  • The suggested Title of the Paper.
  • The Author's name, qualifications and affiliations (if any).
  • The Author's full postal and email addresses.
  • An Abstract of 500-900 characters.
  • Authors must provide 4-6 keywords for indexing purposes.

Do include page numbers.

Some general rules apply:

  • Do not arrange your text with the space key (e.g. for table-like passages, etc.). In such case use tabs or a paragraph (return key).
  • Do not insert page breaks manually.
  • Do not use all capital letters to highlight something within your text. You may highlight text passages with italicized or bold formatting.
  • Dashes should be distinguishable from hyphens. Please use the long dash (Ctrl+Minus). Example: 2003–2005.
  • Endnotes or footnotes should be used sparingly. Number them consecutively throughout the article. If it is necessary to create a footnote, it is preferable to use the MS-Word function to do so (Insert -> reference -> footnotes).
  • Tables should be created with the table function of MS-Word or Excel or with the tabulator. Do not create tables using the space key!
  • All tables should possess a short heading, completely labelled columns, and footnotes if required.
  • The format for cited literature should be consistent throughout the article. Indispensable information is the author‘s name, title, publication year, and publication place.
  • When citing the internet addresses it is important to include the access date as well as the URL.

No manuscripts sent for reviews will be returned.
