About the Journal
The Ramon Llull Journal of Applied Ethics is a annual multidisciplinary ethical journal published by the Ethos Chair of Ramon Llull University in Barcelona, Spain. We publish scientific reports on applied ethics subjects in the form of original articles. We also accept review articles, special communications and editorials.
All submissions are subject to peer review by the Editorial Board and by referees in appropriate specialties. We will consider for publication manuscripts from any part of the world, but most particularly manuscripts that would be of interest to readers from Europe and United States.
Scope of the journal
Ramon Llull Journal of Applied Ethics only publishes original articles that are aimed at relating ethics to the different areas of public life. Economic and social systems, organisations and professions are studied from an ethical point of view in order to spread the practical dimension of philosophical discourse. Applied ethics offer a new opportunity to continue thinking about the fundamentals, processes and consequences that determine the social sphere and, in this sense, the Journal aims to contribute to current debate by offering quality and academic rigour.
Ramon Llull Journal of Applied Ethics is published one time a year, and all articles are available online as PDF and html. We would like to encourage you to visit our website, consider submitting your work to the journal, and sign up as reviewers.
