Focus and Scope
Metaphysics is an open-access, peer-reviewed online journal publishing current research in the field of metaphysics. It is established and administered by the Canadian Metaphysics Collaborative, an organization founded in Canada in 2015 whose purpose is to facilitate collaboration among metaphysicians. The journal publishes up to fifteen articles per year on the topics of contemporary metaphysics and the history of metaphysics on thematic topics that engage with the Aristotelian and neo-Aristotelian traditions. Articles may only be submitted for review after having been presented at the Canadian Metaphysics Collaborative’s annual workshop, or by special request from the editorial board.
The journal is published online as a continuous volume and issue throughout the year. Articles are made available as soon as they are ready to ensure that there are no unnecessary delays in getting content publically available.
