About the Journal

Aims and Scope 

The aim of the “Christian Philosophy” yearbook is to present articles dedicated to the problems present in contemporary culture from a philosophical perspective. In the area of research so far there have been such issues as: person, freedom, guilt, will, values or body, and the philosophy of mysticism. The journal is dedicated to the philosophical research but it does not exclude other related scientific fields of research, theology included.

The first number of the journal was published in 2004 as a journal of the Christian Philosophy Department of the Faculty of Theology of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań (Poland). The founder of the magazine and the chief editor was rev. prof. Marek Jędraszewski.

The next issues appear at the end of the calendar year.


Ghostwriting and guest authorship

Ghostwriting and guest authorship are scientific misconduct and all detected cases will be disclosed and reported to appropriate institutions: institutions employing the authors, scientific societies and publishers of academic texts.

Ghostwriting occurs when someone largely contributed to a text but they hid their participation as co-authors and their role was not mentioned in acknowledgments in the text.

Guest authorship (honorary authorship) occurs when someone is mentioned as a co-author of the publication but their participation is low or none.
