The Canadian Journal of Philosophy was founded in 1971 by four Alberta philosophers, John King-Farlow, Kai Nielsen, T.M. Penelhum, and W.W. Rozeboom. Since its founding, CJP has grown into a widely respected philosophy journal with an international reputation. CJP aims to publish the best work in any area of philosophy in French or English. The Journal receives close to 300 submissions every year from an international community of authors, and it uses a distinguished international list of philosophers to referee these submissions. All papers are blindly reviewed and are selected on the basis of whether they make significant, original contributions to the philosophical debates they address. CJP's annual acceptance rate is typically close to 8%.
In addition to its four quarterly issues, CJP publishes an annual Supplementary Volume of invited papers on a topic of current philosophical interest. Published in cooperation with the University of Calgary Press, supplementary volumes are complimentary with a paper subscription to the Journal, and are also available from uniPresses.
The "moving wall" represents the time period between the last issue
available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal.
Moving walls are generally represented in years. In rare instances, a
publisher has elected to have a "zero" moving wall, so their current
issues are available in JSTOR shortly after publication.
Note: In calculating the moving wall, the current year is not counted.
For example, if the current year is 2008 and a journal has a 5 year
moving wall, articles from the year 2002 are available.
Terms Related to the Moving Wall
Fixed walls: Journals with no new volumes being added to the archive.
Absorbed: Journals that are combined with another title.
Complete: Journals that are no longer published or that have been
combined with another title.
