The Latin American Journal of Political Philosophy (RLFP) is a peer reviewed on-line journal publishing works either in Spanish or in English in the field of political philosophy. Its main aim is to bring about a forum for academic debate on issues on political theory and domestic and international justice open to researchers all around the world. Since RLFP is published by a Latin American group of researchers, articles addressing issues of social and political development and democratic consolidation will be privileged. However, in our imperfectly globalized world, crises and changes taking place in any region may have a direct impact on the prospects of humanity as a whole. RLFP is particularly interested in works dealing with the situation of a world going through deep transformations from a cosmopolitan perspective.
RLFP is published continually and its intended public are researchers in political philosophy, philosophy of law, and ethics.

All manuscripts will be subject to a double blind review process by external referees and must fulfill rigorous academic standards.

Open Access Policy

RLFP operates with an open access policy to all its contents as long as this promotes a truly global exchange of knowledge, providing equal opportunities to researchers from all countries and regions. Moreover, it is well-known that this policy tends to increase the quotation rate of a journal’s contents. Authors retain copyright of their article but agree to publish it under the Creative Commons CC-BY 4.0 Licence.

All the contents of RLFP will be permanently available in its website and will be soon incorporated to academic databases guaranteeing that it will be available in perpetuity.
