Dialectica publishes first-rate articles and discussion notes predominantly in theoretical and systematic philosophy. It is edited in Switzerland and has a focus on analytical philosophy undertaken on the continent. Continuing the work of its founding members, dialectica seeks a better understanding of the mutual support between science and philosophy that both disciplines need and enjoy in their common search for understanding.

Dialectica practices double blind refereeing, as well as blind editing, and follows the "Guidelines for the Handling of Manuscripts by the Editors of Philosophy Journals" of the Association of Philosophy Journal Editors.

Authors are encouraged to submit short articles and discussion notes to the Notes and Discussions section, in particular of articles published by dialectica.

After a sharp increase in submissions in recent years, the current acceptance is at 8%. The average turn-around time (from submission of an article to communication of acceptance or rejection) is below 2 months.

Dialectica publishes articles in English. In special cases, it assists in the translation of excellent articles written in other languages.

Dialectica also publishes book reviews, which are commissioned by the reviews editor, and special issues, which are commissioned by the Editorial Committee.
