This reddit is intended for practicing philosophers - undergraduate students, graduate students, professors, or researchers.

Persons with academic training outside of philosophy are welcome.

AcademicPhilosophy is actively moderated.

Much like an academic journal maintains policies about what it will publish, we have editorial standards we seek to maintain.

This is covered in detail in the sidebar.
