Aim & Scope

African Philosophical Inquiry (API) is the official publication of the Department of Philosophy, University of Ibadan, Nigeria. It is a peer-review journal that focuses on the full spectrum of philosophical reflections and analyses in all areas of philosophy. The objective of the journal is to publish original research articles and reviews that promote exciting scholarly discourse and understanding about philosophical experiences, issues, and developments on the African continent and its diasporas.

The journal is not committed to any school of thought or orientation in philosophy. It is intended to serve as a converging point for philosophical discussion within and outside Africa. The journal is open to a broad range of topics which have philosophical relevance in the humanities and in the sciences. Contributions are double-blind peer-reviewed and include articles, discussions of articles previously published, review articles, and book reviews. 

African Philosophical Inquiry is committed to peer-review integrity that upholds the highest standards of academic review. A submission to API is first assessed for suitability by the editor(s) before it is then peer-reviewed by independent reviewers.
