ICPR Journal:

Instructions to the Contributors (Under Construction)

JICPR welcomes contributions in all fields of Philosophy. However, it would like its contributors to focus on what they consider to be significantly new and important in what they have to say and to consider the counter arguments to what they are saying. This is to ensure that others may judge that what they are saying is on the whole more reasonable than the views opposed to their own. The historical preliminaries may be avoided unless they are absolutely necessary to the development of the argument, as it may be assumed that most of the readers of the Journal are already familiar with them. Reference and quotations are generally to be avoided except in an article that is specifically exegetical. Even in such cases the author is expected to give substantive reasons as to why he differs from the accepted interpretations. The article should, as far as possible, avoid jargon and the author's contention should be stated in as simple a language as possible.

The articles which use Sanskrit terms should use the standard diacritical marks, a specimen list of which is given at the end of the Journal.

Editorial correspondence, including manuscripts for submission should be sent to Executive Editor, Journal of the Indian Council of Philosophical Research, ICPR, New Delhi, or via email to jicpr@icpr.in . Articles should be between 3000 to 6000 words, two copies of which should be submitted. They should be typed on one side of the paper, double spaced with ample margins, and contain author(s)/contributor's name and his/her institutional affiliation along with the complete mailing address. An abstract of 150-200 words should be included. Notes and references should appear at the end of the articles as Notes. The authors should submit the hard copy alongwith the computer file, wherever possible, on a floppy disc to ICPR Main Office - Delhi,Darshan Bhawan, 36, Tughlakabad Institutional Area , Mehrauli Badarpur Road , Near Batra Hospital , New Delhi – 110 062 ,or as an e-mail attachment jicpr@icpr.in.

Only papers which have not been published elsewhere will be considered.

Proofs will be sent to the authors if there is sufficient time to do so. They should be corrected and returned to the Journal at the Delhi address within ten days. Major alterations to the text cannot be accepted.

Authors will be sent twenty five off-prints of their articles free of charge. They may order more of the same by payment.

Copyright to articles published in the Journal shall remain vested with the Journal. Articles in the Journal are indexed in the Philosophers' Index, USA.
