Journal of Phenomenological Philosophy

Phainomenon is an international journal specializing in phenomenology.

It was founded in 2000 and has been published since then with the support of the Center of Philosophy of the University of Lisbon, Portugal.

Phainomenon seeks to contribute to the development of phenomenological studies worldwide, stimulating original work in all fields of phenomenological research, as well as in the areas where phenomenology crosses paths with other philosophical traditions and scientific domains. Phainomenon also seeks to contribute to a better cognizance and understanding of the phenomenological tradition – both of its authors and its themes – accepting works that advance our comprehension of it.

Phainomenon publishes works in English (recommended), Portuguese, Spanish, French, Italian, and German. Contributions are accepted following a double or single-blind peer review process, always with external reviewers.

The current publisher of Phainomenon is SCIENDO, which belongs to De Gruyter Verlag,

Regularly, the journal has two sections: a general section, where papers are continuously received and published; and a thematic section, preceded by an announcement and a call for papers, sometimes under the responsibility of guest editors. The thematic section usually has a comprehensive theme, intended to encompass other philosophical traditions, as well as other disciplines belonging either to the social and human sciences or to the natural sciences.

Moreover, Phainomenon publishes book reviews and bibliographical notes and, though not on a regular basis, translations into Portuguese of fundamental texts belonging to the intellectual patrimony of phenomenology.

Phainomenon is published twice a year, in Spring and Fall. All articles, notes, translations, reviews and other content can be accessed and downloaded for free thanks to our open access policy.

Phainomenon is financed through Portuguese national funds through FCT - Fundação para aCiência e a Tecnologia, I.P., in the scope of the projectUIDB/00310/2020.


Sciendo archives the contents of this journal in Portico - digital long-term preservation service of scholarly books, journals and collections.
