Selection Criteria

The utmost priority of the International Ontology Congress and its publication, the Ontology Studies Journal, is the fidelity to the original project of rethinking the great questions of fundamental philosophy, using the tools provided by contemporary thought to that end. For that reason, we will value clarity in the presentation of the problem in the first place. Erudition will be valued just as long as it is instrumental to that goal. Consequently, the evaluation committee of the 11th Congress will take into acount a clear link with the congress subject in its different aspects besides from the general scientific and philosophical quality of the paper
