Focus and Scope

Labyrinth is a journal of the Institute for Axiological Research / Institut für Axiologische Forschungen, founded 1999 in Vienna. It was firstly published as an on-line review and later as printed volumes and special issues. It is actually both, a printed academic journal, available for purchase, and an electronic open access journal. We are working actually to make all past issues to be availble online in the archives.

As a nonpartisan philosophical and interdisciplinary journal Labyrinth is engaged in publication of high quality peer-reviewed academic articles, critical essays, interviews and book reviews. Althought it is focuced on philosophy and on axiology, i.e. on the philosophy and theory of values and their sociocultural contexts, it is also open to related topics and inquieries in all fields of the humanities and the social sciences with a special emphasis on critical thinking, social controversies and conflict resolution, interfaith dialogue, intercultural and cross-cultural communication, gender studies and managing diversity.

Peer Review Process

Labyrinth utilises the policy of double blind peer-review. In a first step or first screening -- specially if the auhor is unknown or/and does not submit an invited paper -- the manuscript will be carefully considered by the editors in view of the journal's topics, style, and guidelines. If it fits the cfp, topics, style, the guidelines, and in some cases also the special requirements of the issue, the manuscript will be blind reviewed by two qualified specialists and the author will recieve a feedback within two months. 

NB: The Journal accepts only manuscripts which are unpublished and not currently under review for any other printed or electronic publication!
