The American Philosophical Association and Cambridge University Press are delighted to announce the appointment of the editorial board that will launch the Journal of the American Philosophical Association. The journal is now open for submissions.

Appearing quarterly in print and online, the Journal of the American Philosophical Association will provide a platform for original work in all areas of philosophy.

Professor John Heil, whose appointment as editor-in-chief was announced late last year, will be supported by a small group of associate editors who will be responsible for soliciting and assessing submissions in their respective fields. A number of internationally distinguished advisory editors will provide additional guidance. (The full editorial board is listed below.)

The editor commented: "We have assembled a philosophically impressive editorial board committed to the development of a journal publishing articles of the highest quality that reflect the diversity of philosophy today. Our aim, spelled out in our editorial statement, is to publish compelling papers written in a way that can be appreciated by philosophers of every persuasion.”

At Cambridge, the journal will be joining one of the world’s most highly respected lists of philosophy books and journals. Simon Ross, managing director of Cambridge Journals, commented, "Cambridge is one of the foremost academic publishers in philosophy and the APA is the discipline’s premier learned society. We are excited to be working together to establish an important new international forum for broad-spectrum philosophical research.”

About the American Philosophical Association

With over 10,000 members and 90 affiliated groups, the American Philosophical Association (APA) is one of the largest philosophical societies in the world and the only American philosophical society not devoted to a particular school or philosophical approach. The APA was founded in 1900 to promote the exchange of ideas among philosophers, to encourage creative and scholarly activity in philosophy, to facilitate the professional work and teaching of philosophers, and to represent philosophy as a discipline. The APA is based at the University of Delaware.
