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. Taking the humanities as a departure point, 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 before being sent to reviewers
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.
