The Journal of the Federation of Asia-Pacific Philosophy in Schools Associations

The Journal of Philosophy in Schools ISSN 2204-2482 focusses on research into philosophy with school-aged children. What was once called Philosophy for/with Children (P4C) has developed into a sub-discipline of philosophy with its own history, traditions and pedagogy incorporating philosophical inquiry in the classroom and Socratic dialogue, particularly through the Community of Inquiry (CoI) methodology.

The JPS is an outstanding resource for anyone interested in Philosophy in Education. It is freely available.


The JPS welcomes submissions which interrogate theoretical and conceptual understandings as well as those which draw on original empirical research on the pedagogy and practice of philosophy in schools. The journal also reviews new books and new teacher resources in the field. The aim of the journal is to encourage academic reflection and research on philosophy in schools, making such information widely available through an open-access format.

The Journal of Philosophy in Schools (JPS) is listed in the DOAJ: Directory of Open Access Journals. It is the official journal of The Federation of Australasian Philosophy in Schools Associations (FAPSA).
