Philosophers' Imprint is a refereed philosophy journal, edited by Stephen Darwall and J. David Velleman. The journal is advised by an international board of editors and published on the Internet by the University of Michigan Digital Library. Unlike many other philosophy journals, the Imprint offers access to its published articles for free to anyone on the World Wide Web—no subscription or registration whatsoever is required. While articles are not published during regular intervals, readers can be notified of new publications by mailing list.

The mission[edit]

The idea behind Philosophers' Imprint was inspired by the Open Access movement. The goal is to start the foundation for a "future in which academic libraries no longer spend millions of dollars purchasing, binding, housing, and repairing printed journals, because they have assumed the role of publishers, cooperatively disseminating the results of academic research for free, via the Internet."[1]
