The Australasian Journal of Philosophy (AJP) is one of the world's leading philosophy journals. It is recognized as publishing the very best work in the analytic tradition, but is not narrow in what it regards as worthy of acceptance. Heavily cited in the general philosophical literature, it is covered by the major abstracting and indexing services. (Here is a full list.) In 2007 it was rated 'A' (the highest category) in the European Reference Index in the Humanities (ERIH), a European Science Foundation project which aims to help impartially assess the quality of Humanities research output. In 2010 it was rated 'A*' (the highest category) in the Australian Research Council's 'Excellence in Research for Australia' (ERA) journal ranking list.

Founded in 1923, the AJP has appeared without a break ever since, moving from triannual to quarterly issues in 1979. It was originally produced directly by the Australasian Association of Philosophy (which remains its owner and sponsoring organization). Responsibility for publication was transferred by the Association to Oxford University Press in 1998, and transferred again in 2005 to Taylor & Francis. It is now available in full-text in several thousand academic and research libraries world-wide, including developing nations, through online arrangements with Taylor & Francis. Also available online, to all subscribers, is the full digital archive, from 1923 to the present.

Submissions are received from across the globe and generally exceed 600 per year. The Journal currently publishes between 35 and 40 full articles per year.

The Editor bases decisions on the advice of a world-wide network of referees, with the additional support of an internationally distinguished Editorial Board who take an active part in the running of the Journal. The AJP has a reputation for supplying, on average, timely decisions on submissions, with helpful comments from referees.

The Editor is elected to the position by a vote of the Australasian Association of Philosophy, to which he reports annually and to whose Council he belongs ex officio.
