Goal of the Newsletter on Asian and Asian-American Philosophers and Philosophies

The APA Newsletter on Asian and Asian-American Philosophers and Philosophies is sponsored by the APA committee on Asian and Asian-American philosophers and philosophies to report on the philosophical work of Asian and Asian-American philosophy, to report on new work in Asian philosophy, and to provide a forum for the discussion of topics of importance to Asian and Asian-American philosophers and those engaged with Asian and Asian-American philosophy. We encourage a diversity of views and topics within this broad rubric. None of the varied philosophical views provided by authors of newsletter articles necessarily represents the views of any or all the members of the committee on Asian and Asian-American philosophers and philosophies, including the editor(s) of the newsletter. The committee and the newsletter are committed to advancing Asian and Asian-American philosophical scholarships and bringing this work and this community to the attention of the larger philosophical community; we do not endorse any particular approach to Asian or Asian-American philosophy.

Submission Guidelines and Information

Purpose

The purpose of the newsletter is to publish information about the status of Asians and Asian-Americans and their philosophy and to make the resources of Asians and Asian-American philosophy available to a larger philosophical community. The newsletter presents discussions of recent developments in Asians and Asian-American philosophy (including, for example, both modern and classical East-Asian philosophy, both modern and classical South Asian philosophy, and Asians and Asian Americans doing philosophy in its various forms), related work in other disciplines, literature overviews, reviews of the discipline as a whole, timely book reviews, and suggestions for both spreading and improving the teaching of Asian philosophy in the current curriculum. It also informs the profession about the work of the APA Committee on Asian and Asian-American Philosophers and Philosophies. One way the dissemination of knowledge of the relevant areas occurs is by holding highly visible, interactive sessions on Asian philosophy at the American Philosophical Association’s three annual divisional meetings.

Potential authors should follow the submission guidelines below:

  1. Please submit essays electronically to the editor(s). Articles submitted to the newsletter should be limited to ten double-spaced pages and must follow the APA submission guidelines.
  2. All manuscripts should be prepared for anonymous review. Each submission shall be sent to two referees, and reports will be shared with authors. References should follow The Chicago Manual of Style.
  3. If the paper is accepted, each author is required to sign a publishing agreement prior to publication.

Book reviews and reviewers

If you have published a book that you consider appropriate for review in the newsletter, please ask your publisher to send the editor(s) a copy of your book. Each call for papers may also include a list of books for possible review. To volunteer to review books (or some specific book), kindly send the editor(s) a CV and letter of interest mentioning your areas of research and teaching.

Where to send papers/reviews

Please send all articles, comments, reviews, suggestions, books, and other communications to the editors: Jay L. Garfield ([email protected]) and Prasanta Bandyopadhyay ([email protected]).

Submission deadlines

Submissions for spring issues are due by the preceding November 1, and submissions for fall issues are due by the preceding February 1.

Guest editorship

It is possible that one or more members of the committee on Asian and Asian-American philosophers and philosophies could act as guest editors for one of the issues of the newsletter depending on their expertise in the field. To produce a high-quality newsletter, one of the co-editors could even come from outside the members of the committee depending on his/her area of research interest.
