About the Journal

Aims and Scopes

Gnosi: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Human Theory and Praxis is an open-access, peer-reviewed interdisciplinary bilingual journal (English and French). It includes essays, articles, review essays, book reviews, commentaries, and discussions. The journal intends to promote a dialogue between scholars working in disciplines in the humanities, including philosophy, history, religion, language, culture, and literature. Likewise, within social science, it accepts papers in the areas of political science, social anthropology, social psychology, social geography, cultural studies, etc. Papers within this scope and fields will be considered for publication as long as it deals exclusively with human endeavors and theories.  All submissions must be under review elsewhere or have been previously published. All received manuscripts have to pass a plagiarism detection test (Plagiarism Checker X) before being sent to reviewers. Gnosi Journal DO NOT charge submission fees but charges publication fees. All manuscripts should be sent to papers@gnosijournal.com.

"Gnosi" publishes twice a year. The journal’s two issues (June and December) are generally not thematic. However, there can be a third issue, which is often thematic (a special issue). The journal publishes theoretical and methodological, as well as empirically based, papers that contribute to a cross-disciplinary debate that is fully within the scope of the Humanities and Social Sciences. Both quantitative and qualitative texts are accepted for publication based on either positivist or humanist methodology if they meet high standards of scholarly peer-review. 

While the journal is international in scope, papers accurately promoting African concepts, theories, and points of view, which are less known in world literature, are especially welcome. This also applies to manuscripts authored by scholars from outside the core of the world's socio-economic system, which give chances for direct discussion with no mediation from the core. Papers must be submitted in English or French.
