About the Journal

The Journal of Didactics of Philosophy (JDPh) is a peer-reviewed academic journal devoted to research on the teaching and learning of philosophy. Articles may be about any level of education, however the main focus is on high school philosophy.

We welcome work with a philosophical or normative approach as well as reports of results from empirical qualitative and quantitative research. The journal also publishes reviews of books, textbooks and other educational material of international interest as well as country reports about philosophy education in different countries. It is an aim of the journal to promote the dialogue among researchers and practising teachers across the world.

The journal is edited by Dr. Jonas Pfister (University of Innsbruck, Austria) and Prof. Dr. Philipp Richter (Ruhr University Bochum, Germany), supported by an editorial board to secure high academic standard and quality in research articles. Articles are published after double blind peer review by CC BY License. Access to all articles is free and there are no fees for publishing (Open Access: Diamant/Platinum OA).

The first issue was published in October 2017. Since 2022 articles are published directly after successful peer review.
