Moral Philosophy and Politics (MOPP) is interested in receiving submissions on any topic falling within the scope of the journal. MOPP primarily publishes original research papers (3.000-10.000 words), but also consider shorter discussion pieces. It welcomes both submissions for special issues as well as submissions unrelated to any current call for papers.


MOPP uses a double-blind refereeing process. The identity of the author(s) of a submission is not known to the referees, nor vice versa. The editor in charge of the submission knows the identity of both. Submissions must be anonymized to allow for blind reviewing. Each submission is typically reviewed by two referees within six to twelve weeks. 


Submissions need not conform to any particular formatting standard at the time of submission, but must be adjusted to the MOPP house style upon acceptance.


Papers should be submitted via the ScholarOne website here: Submit.


Accepted papers are published online ahead of print, and authors may post the papers as published 12 months after the print publication on their own or instituational (non-profit) webpages.


MOPP has a policy of making selected papers of every issue freely available. They can be downloaded here. All of the 2014 papers are curently available free of charge (more info). The De Gruyter Open Library scheme offers authors the option of making their papers freely accessible. More Information on this scheme is available here.


De Gruyter also allows authors the use of the final published version of an article (publisher pdf) for self-archiving (author's personal website) and/or archiving in an institutional repository (on a non-profit server) after an embargo period of 12 months after publication.
