Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy: A Peer-Reviewed Academic Resource

The Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy (IEP) was founded in 1995 as a non-profit organization to provide open access to detailed, scholarly information on key topics and philosophers in all areas of philosophy. The Encyclopedia receives no funding, and operates through the volunteer work of the staff, which consists of editors, authors, volunteers, and technical advisers.

Most of the articles in The IEP are original contributions by specialized philosophers; these are identifiable by the author’s name at the foot of the article. Others are temporary, or “proto articles,” and have largely been adapted from older sources. They are identifiable by the inclusion of the initials “IEP” at the close and will in time be replaced by original articles.

The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy

The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (SEP) is designed so that each entry is maintained and kept up to date by an expert or group of experts in the field. All entries and substantive updates are refereed by the members of the SEP's distinguished Editorial Board before they are made public. Thus, this dynamic reference work maintains academic standards while evolving and adapting in response to new research. Researchers can cite fixed editions that are created on a quarterly basis and stored in the SEP Archives (every entry contains a link to its complete archival history, identifying the fixed edition the reader should cite). The Table of Contents lists entries that are published or assigned. The Projected Table of Contents also lists entries which are currently unassigned but nevertheless projected.
