Brill’s International Journal for the Study of Skepticism now included in SCOPUS

Leiden (NL) / Boston (MA) – 23 January 2015

Brill’s International Journal for the Study of Skepticism is now included in SCOPUS. The reviewers commented:

This is an exceptionally strong and impressive journal. It fully merits inclusion in SCOPUS and I am delighted that it is going to be included henceforth.

As the first international journal entirely devoted to philosophical skepticism, the International Journal for the Study of Skepticism publishes high-quality articles and discussion notes on any field of research relevant to the study of skeptical thought. The wide range of areas covered includes the history and significance of ancient, medieval, modern, and contemporary skepticism as well as discussions of current specific skeptical problems and arguments in epistemology, metaethics, ontology, philosophy of religion, philosophy of mind, and philosophy of language. The journal is fully committed to the highest standards of clarity and rigor, and serves as a forum for debate and exchange of ideas among leading international philosophers and scholars.
