About the Journal

Anthropos is one of the leading Slovenian scientific journals for humanities with over a half-a-century tradition of publishing scientific papers on humanities, especially on philosophy and psychology. It strongly supports interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary cooperation of humanities and social studies with other studies. It strives to publish seminal national and international scientific papers from the field of philosophy, psychology and other human and social sciences. The core of the journal consists of original scientific papers in the above-mentioned fields of research (both empirical and theoretical). The journal consists of two double issues per year. Anthropos is the official journal of the Slovenian Philosophical Society and Psychological Society of Slovenia.

Ethical Standards

Editorial board of Anthropos is committed to high ethical standards of scientific publishing. With the submission of the paper, authors are obliged to adhere to the same standards, including: revealing a complete list of authors that contributed to the paper, clearly citing all sources used, assuring the originality of the paper (antiplagiarism) and assuring that the paper has not been already published in the identical or similar form elsewhere.

Submitting the Paper and Editorial Process

Authors should send their proposal to the editorial email address: After receiving the electronic version of the proposed contribution, the editorial board decides if the contribution is in line with the journal’s program and informs the author about its decision. All eligible scientific papers then enter the double-blind peer review process and are reviewed by at least two independent reviewers selected by the editor. Authors are usually informed of the reviewers’ decision in up to 3 months after submission. Authors are requested to do the proofreading of the text if the contribution fails to meet the layout and language quality standards. The author’s response, with or without corrections, should be given within 7 days.

Writing Guidelines

Contributions can be written in the Slovene or English language (other languages should be discussed with editorial board prior to submission), and should not exceed 30.000 characters including spaces. Proposed papers must be clearly structured. The title of the paper must represent the content with clarity.

The first page (sent separately) should contain:

  • Title and subtitle of the contribution (with translation into Slovene)
  • Full list of authors, their full names, academic titles and affiliations (including address),
  • Up to 120 word abstract and a list of 5–7 keywords in English and Slovene,
  • Statement of exclusive submission and ethical commitment at the page bottom: “This paper has not been submitted elsewhere in identical or similar form, nor will it be after its submission to Anthropos until the review process is concluded. All ethical standards of academic publishing were followed.”

Blind manuscript should contain:

  • Title and subtitle of contribution.
  • Abstract and keywords.

The title (and subtitle, if necessary) is written in bold type, book titles in italics and article titles within “double quotation marks”. No blank lines between paragraphs are to be applied. New paragraphs are introduced by shifting the left margin to the right (using the TAB key). Graphic design (style, framing, edges, pagination etc.) should not be applied. Uniform font style is used throughout the text (Times New Roman, standard font size 12, footnotes 10). Any notes should be in the form of footnotes. Otherwise, the “author-date” style of referencing should be used in the main body of the text by inserting the author surname, year of publication and page number in brackets at the end of quotation (Nietzsche 1992, 31). In-text quotations that exceed 40 words must be indented using the Tab key. Entire bibliography should be listed in alphabetical order and according to the year of publication (if more works by the same author are listed) at the end of contribution under the heading “Literature”, and should be limited to the scope of works directly referred to in text. Anthropos is using CMOS (Chicago Manual of Style) citation style. Bibliography at the end of text should be put down according to the rules applied in the examples listed below, and organized alphabetically:
