The JBSP publishes articles on phenomenology and existential philosophy as well as contributions from other fields of philosophy engaging with topics in the tradition of Phenomenology. Articles from researchers in the humanities and the human sciences interested in the philosophy of their subject will be welcome too. Space will be given to research in progress, to interdisciplinary discussion, and to book reviews.
The JBSP was launched in 1970 and is now published online, articles going live throughout the year then collected into four issues forming an annual volume. Print editions of the four issues are also available.
In each annual volume we aim to publish one Special Issue covering themes of contemporary significance. Proposals for such issues should be submitted to the editor, around two years before planned publication. The person proposing the Special Issue will usually serve as Guest Editor for that issue.
Accessing the JBSP
The most affordable way to get a personal subscription to the JBSP is to become a member of the British Society for Phenomenology (BSP). A one year membership to the BSP means you will get full electronic access to 50+ years of the journal online. Print editions are also available to members at a special discount rate. The JBSP is also available at many academic and public libraries, in both print and online versions. You can also subscribe directly through Taylor & Francis Online subscriptions without becoming a member of the BSP and thus without the membership discount, either for the JBSP ‘Online only’ or ‘Print & Online’.

Articles can be accessed via our publisher’s website: JBSP at Taylor & Francis Online. Access to the JBSP is free to all members of the society.
