Pitt Publishes New E-Journal on French Philosophy

Issue Date: 
March 21, 2011

Academic manuscripts and essays on French philosophy are being solicited for The Journal of French and Francophone Philosophy (JFFP)—a new e-journal published by the University of Pittsburgh’s University Library System (ULS), a national leader in Open Access digital publishing.

JFFP (http://jffp.pitt.edu) is an international, bilingual peer-reviewed journal devoted to the study of French and Francophone thought. Though rooted in the discipline of philosophy, the journal also publishes interdisciplinary extensions and explorations of French and Francophone thought and accepts peer-reviewed academic articles and book reviews written in both English and French. In keeping with its mission, JFFP will consider publishing essays on prominent or lesser-known figures in French and Francophone philosophy.

Founded in 1989, the journal will now be positioned to gain maximum visibility in an Open Access model of distribution. Current and past content will be fully searchable and available in full text. The e-journal’s goal is to foster international communication and collaboration between francophone scholars.

JFFP is edited by Scott Davidson and John Drabinski, under the direction of an editorial board comprising leading scholars in the field. The journal operates in coordination with the Société Américaine de Philosophie de Langue Française.

Pitt’s E-Journal Publishing Program is part of ULS’ D-Scribe Digital Publishing Program. ULS is the 23rd-largest academic library system within the United States. Under the administration of the Hillman University Librarian and ULS director, it includes 21 libraries and holds more than 6.2 million volumes and world-class specialized collections, among them the Archive of Scientific Philosophy and the Archives of Industrial Society, as well as major foreign-language materials totaling 1.4 million volumes.
