Editorial Policies

Focus and Scope

Phronimon publishes original scientifically justifiable contributions (articles, discussions of articles previously published and book reviews) within the field of Philosophy and the Humanities, although contributions within the field of Greek Philosophy and Greek studies will receive priority.  We publish in English, Afrikaans and modern Greek. On submission of the manuscript the author shall present a written undertaking that the article has not been published or is not being presented for publication elsewhere. All articles and review articles will be submitted to national and international referees. Effective and detailed source referencing is of paramount importance. Articles will be scrutinised and checked for bibliographic references and any evidence of proven plagiarism will result in non-publication.
