Internet Encyclopedia of African Philosophy

A Peer-Reviewed Academic Resource

IGWEBUIKEPEDIA

Igwebuikepedia: Internet Encyclopedia of African Philosophy (IIEAP) (ISSN: 2504-9038) was founded in 2015 as a non-profit organization to provide open access to detailed, scholarly information on key topics and philosophers in the area of African philosophy. The Encyclopedia receives no funding, and operates through the volunteer work of the editors, authors, volunteers, and technical advisers. The Encyclopedia is free of charge and available to all users of the Internet world-wide. The editors hold doctorate degrees and are professors at colleges and universities around the world, most from Africa. The African Encyclopedia sits on the African philosophy expressed in the African concept- Igwebuike which means there is strength in unity . It is the modality of being. Is the name chosen for this encyclopedia, because every African philosophy rests on Igwebuike; it is, therefore, the unity of the African philosophical experience.

Statement of Purpose

The purpose of the IIEAP is to provide detailed, scholarly information on key topics and philosophers in the area of African Philosophy. The Encyclopedia's articles are written in such a way that it would provide a pool of knowledge for professors of institutions, graduate and undergraduate students who are majoring in African philosophy and by other scholars who have interest in the field of African Philosophy. The aim of founding IIEAP is to make it a world class academic encyclopedia with a global brand that would thrive on standard, quality and originality.

Standards & Submissions

Scholarly Standards
The submission and review process of articles is the same as that with printed philosophy journals, books and reference works. The authors are specialists in the areas in which they write, and are frequently leading authorities. Submissions are peer reviewed by specialists according to strict criteria. The peer review process is rigorous and meets high academic standards. More specifically, an author submits an article to a specific IIEAP area editor, who reads through the article and makes an initial judgment about its overall quality. Many submissions are rejected at this stage. The area editor then sends the promising submission to qualified referees. Usually there are two referees per article. The area editor evaluates the reviews from the referees, makes a decision whether to publish, and sends a recommendation to the author. Most submissions are then revised, in either their form or substance. In some cases more rounds of revision are required, and we sometimes must reject entries because of inadequate revision. More commonly, any problems with entries are fixed with revision as one might expect when well-qualified people are recruited to write entries. This is a common pattern for scholarly journal articles and reference works.
