About Submissions

All articles in Animus, unless otherwise noted, are copyright of the original authors (all rights reserved).

Please freely copy, reproduce and distribute them in part or in whole as long as proper attribution is given.



Animus is a peer-reviewed journal. Since the editors for each issue are chosen for their specialization and expertise in the topic for that issue, all articles will be reviewed by the editors for that volume. Final approval of the contents of each volume rests with the Editorial Board of ANIMUS. For the themes proposed for upcoming issues, see Future Issues. Articles will be judged not only on their quality but for their pertinence to the theme of the particular issue and the general aims of the Journal (see Raison d'être). Submissions must be received by February 1st, and the journal will be published by the end of May each year.

Submissions should be sent electronically by email attachment to the address animusjournal@gmail.com. All submissions must be accompanied by an abstract, maximum length 100 words.

In submitting work, please note the following guidelines:

-We prefer articles submitted as "normal" MS Word documents, cleaned of superfluous formatting codes.

-Notes to be constructed as footnotes.

-Italics rather than underlining used for book titles, foreign words and (rarely) emphasis.

-"Double quotes" used for actual quotations or for titles of articles, poems etc. and 'single quotes' for all other purposes.


All articles in ANIMUS are indexed in the Philosopher’s Index.
