About the Journal

Aims and Scopes

Gnosi: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Human Theory and Praxis is an interdisciplinary bilingual journal (English  and French). It includes essays, articles, review essays, book reviews, commentaries and discussions. The journal intends to promote a dialogue between scholars working in disciplines in the humanities including philosophy, history, religion, language, culture, and literature. Likewise, within social science, it accepts papers in the area of political science, social anthropology, social psychology, social geography, cultural studies, etc. Papers within this scope and fields will be considered for publication as long as it deals exclusively on human endeavors and theories.  All submissions must neither be under review elsewhere nor have been previously published. All received manuscripts have to pass a plagiarism detection test (Plagiarism Checker X) before being sent to reviewers

`Between the year  2018-2021, "Gnosi" was published twice a year (8 issues in 4 volumes). The journal’s two issues (June and December) were generally not thematic, but articles published were multidisciplinary in their approach, and deal with subjects in the areas of (including, but not limited to) history, philosophy, history of culture, anthropology, ethics, aesthetics, sociology, literary theory and criticism, linguistics, art history, and library and information science. The Journal has also published two special issues (2 thematic issues) which appeared in the year 2020 and 2021.

In 2022, "Gnosi Journal" began publishing triannually (April, August, and December). The Journal will only consider manuscripts written in English and French languages. All manuscripts in the French language must be accompanied with both an "English" title and an abstract. "Gnosi Journal" will also "only" consider publishing Special Issue when a proposal is received. Gnosi Journal limits the publication of "Special Issues" to once within a year, with no specific time frame (Day, Month, or Year). Proposal for special issues should be sent to Dr. Samuel Bassey: samuelbassey15@yahoo.com

The journal publishes theoretical and methodological, as well as empirical based papers that contribute to a cross-disciplinary debate that fulls within the scope of the Humanities and Social Sciences. Both quantitative and qualitative texts are accepted for publication, based on either positivist or humanist methodology if they meet high standards of scholarly peer-review. 

While the journal is international in scope, papers accurately promoting African concepts, theories, and points of view, less known in the world literature, are especially welcome. This also applies to manuscripts authored by scholars from outside the core of the world socio-economic system, which gives chances for direct discussion with no mediation of the core. Papers must be submitted in English or French Languages.
