Revista Española de Filosofía Medieval is the official journal of SOFIME. Regularly published since 1993 and bi-annually since 2019, Revista Española de Filosofía Medieval is a scholarly publication indexed, peer-reviewed, and distributed by UCO Press, the University of Cordoba’s Publisher. Its official venue is the University of Córdoba (Spain).
The main scope of Revista Española de Filosofía Medieval is the broad field of studies on medieval thought. Its most specific aim is to provide scholarship with outstanding scientific contributions specifically on the scientific and philosophical reflections developed through the Middle Ages, their sources, and their influence throughout the Renaissance and the Early-Modern Period. Any original contribution to the study on the four main medieval traditions – Latin, Arabic, Hebrew, and Greek – is welcomed, especially if focused on the transmission of knowledge among these different frameworks. While the main interest of the journal ultimately resides in the philosophical analysis of doctrinal positions held by medieval and early-modern thinkers, papers examining the historical context of those positions are welcomed as well, recognising the implicit link between historical and philosophical study of medieval thought. The journal also welcomes original papers on the broad history of scientific reflection, from the Late Antiquity to the Early-Modern Period, especially when linked to their medieval developments or sources.
Dedicated sections of the journal aim at publishing critical reviews of new published books, as well as scientific notes of short length. In exceptional cases, Revista Española de Filosofía Medieval accepts modern translations of medieval and early-modern texts of short length and duly introduced. Translations should be realised bearing in mind their twofold aim of divulgation and scholarly contribution: the editorial committee will accept the submission only of those papers meeting both these requirements.
The submitted articles must be original contributions. Please, notice that the journal will accept a limited number of contributions by the same author. As a general rule, authors should submit to Revista no more than one article every three years: the editors will decide case to case the admissibility of further contributions by the same author in a shorter length of time than the mentioned above. Similar consideration may apply to book reviews.
Authors should be aware that Revista Española de Filosofía Medieval will hold the rights of the published articles. Consequently, published articles must not be published, either entirely or partially, in any other publications without an explicit authorisation by the journal editorial committee.
