Length:  Submissions are normally between 200 and 1000 words long (up to 3500 words for historical  entries on philosophical schools and movements such as "Comparative Philosophy").


All submissions are peer reviewed. Preferably, entries explain concepts and terms, but in certain cases, entries on philosophers or books will also be accepted. All entries will be published with the author’s name. Entries must present bibliographical references for further reading at the end of the text.

The idea of ODIP is to provide information about non-mainstream concepts, concepts that are related to interculturality, or provide original interpretations of certain concepts. All entries must address at least indirectly the potential use of the defined terms within contexts of intercultural philosophy. This is how ODIP strives to distinguish itself from and complement other existing encyclopedias.


On the 'Call for Entries' page you will find a list of terms. These are just suggestions. Entries on other relevant terms are welcome.
