About RAP


Review of Analytic Philosophy is a peer-reviewed international journal designed to provide a forum for people working in analytic philosophy broadly conceived. It publishes high quality original research on any area of analytic philosophy, including Epistemology, Metaphysics, Philosophy of Mind, Philosophy of Language, Philosophy of Science, Logic, Normative Ethics, Metaethics, and History of Philosophy.


Manuscripts should be between 8000 and 10000 words with an abstract of around 150 words and submitted as a double-spaced Word document or PDF file. They should be fully anonymized to ensure double-blind reviewing. Manuscripts are submitted under the understanding that they have not been published elsewhere, either in whole or in part, and are not currently under review elsewhere. Submissions can be made via the online submission form at (https://rap-journal.net/submit-for-authors/).


RAP has two types of manuscript; Research Articles and Reports.
Research Articles present major advance in research.
Reports present new findings of research in a field.


All manuscripts must be written in clear, concise English, and be consistent in style and spelling. Manuscripts will be published in English and all accepted manuscripts will be proofread and edited by professional editors (included in the publication fee).


Manuscripts will be subject to a double-blind review process. This means that manuscripts will be anonymous to reviewers as well as editors, and reviewers will be anonymous to authors.


Authors of an accepted manuscript shall agree to transfer the copyright of the manuscript to MYU K.K. All articles published in Review of Analytic Philosophy are available under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License (CC-BY 4.0, https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/).


This journal is open-access and operates on an author-side fee basis. The fee will cover typesetting, proofreading, and reviewing, as well as publication of the article online and the printing of hard copies and requested reprints. We will also pay an honorarium to all reviewers.
Importantly, the fee will also cover professional editing for English clarity and naturalness. The publication fee, payable upon article acceptance, is JPY 40000, and the proofreading fee varies from JPY 0 to 50000 depending on the level of English. English-speaking authors are not required to pay the proofreading fee.
Note that a discount is available if the first author is not employed full time. Please contact us for details.
The authors are requested to pay the fee after their paper has been accepted for publication. The authors of rejected papers will not be charged.


One or two issues are published per year. Publication will be primarily online, though a number of physical copies of the journal will also be printed for distribution.
