Moratorium Please be advised that manuscript submissions to the JPL have grown rapidly over the past few years, putting tremendous pressure on the  editors, the editorial board, and external referees.

In order to give JPL an opportunity to reorganize the editorial  process to handle the increased volume, we have decided to suspend new submission between May 1 and October 1, 2013.The JPL will continue with the current process for manuscripts that are currently under review. In addition, if your paper has been  'conditionally accepted,' then please feel free to resubmit it in  the usual way. However, if your paper has been given a verdict of  'revise and resubmit,' we ask that you not resubmit it until after  OctoberWe very much regret the difficulty caused by this decision to all authors of potential JPL articles, and hope that you will consider  sending us your manuscripts again after October 1.If you have any question about this moratorium, or about how it affects your paper, please feel free to write directly to Hans van  Ditmarsch ( or John Horty ( --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Journal of Philosophical Logic provides a forum for work at the crossroads of philosophy and logic, old and new, with contributions ranging from conceptual to technical.

Accordingly, the Journal invites papers in all of the traditional areas of philosophical logic, including but not limited to: various versions of modal, temporal, epistemic, and deontic logic; constructive logics; relevance and other sub-classical logics; many-valued logics; logics of conditionals; quantum logic; decision theory, inductive logic, logics of belief change, and formal epistemology; defeasible and nonmonotonic logics; formal philosophy of language; vagueness; and theories of truth and, validity.

In addition to publishing papers on philosophical logic in this familiar sense of the term, the Journal also invites papers on extensions of logic to new areas of application, and on the philosophical issues to which these give rise. The Journal places a special emphasis on the applications of philosophical logic in other disciplines, not only in mathematics and the natural sciences but also, for example, in computer science, artificial intelligence, cognitive science, linguistics, jurisprudence, and the social sciences, such as economics, sociology, and political science.
