The Journal of Applied Philosophy provides a unique forum for philosophical research which seeks to make a constructive contribution to problems of practical concern. Open to the expression of diverse viewpoints, the journal brings critical analysis to these areas and to the identification, justification and discussion of values of universal appeal. The Journal of Applied Philosophy covers a broad spectrum of issues in environment, medicine, science, policy, law, politics, economics and education.
The Journal of Applied Philosophy is a peer reviewed journal with an international editorship and readership. The Society for Applied Philosophy annual lecture, published in the Journal, will not be eligible for the prize for best article.
