Disclosure and conflicts of interest
Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used before the publication of the manuscript in the research of the whole staff of the Journal without the express written consent of the author.
DUTIES OF REVIEWERS
Contribution to Editorial Decisions
Peer review assists the editor in making editorial decisions and through the editorial communications with the author may also assist the author in improving the paper.
Any selected referee who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that its prompt review will be impossible should notify the editor and excuse himself from the review process.
Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. They must not be shown to, transmitted or discussed with others except as authorized by the editor.
Standards of Objectivity
Reviews should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate.
Referees should express their views clearly with supporting arguments.
Acknowledgement of Sources
Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors. Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument had been previously reported should be accompanied by the relevant citation. A reviewer should also call to the editor's attention any substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and any other published paper of which they have personal knowledge.
Disclosure and Conflict of Interest
Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.
DUTIES OF AUTHORS
Authors of reports of original research should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance. Underlying data should be represented accurately in the paper. A paper should contain sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work.

Moreover if he/she wants to submit a manuscript previously published in a different language which is of absolute significance in the research, he/she has to report all information of the original manuscript and the reasons to publish the new version. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behaviour and is unacceptable.
Acknowledgement of Sources
Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work.
Authorship of the Paper
Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study.

International Journal of Philosophical Studies
If deconstruction, from Nietzsche onwards, has been the banner of contemporary thought, the ‘new’ thought that should have been apt to change the face of classical, systematic, traditional philosophy; if, thanks to deconstruction, we've been able to remove the foundations, the endings, the purposes, the powers, the supremacies, and therefore we've managed to face the nihilistic drift, the ‘end of meaning’, the crisis of the subject, now it is essential to move forward towards a shift in thinking, so that what has been side-lined, dis-located, abandoned, won't take it over again. The thought needs to be retired, not in order to fail, but to be replaced with something different, to ‘retreat’ in, to rearrange it over again; this was, after all, Kant's message. He wrote in his private and posthumous notes: “I do not endorse the rule by virtue of which, if something gets proven with the use of pure reason, the result doesn't get to be revoked, as if it was a solid axiom. [...] I don't subscribe to the view under which we shouldn't doubt once we're convinced of something. In pure philosophy this is impossible. Our mind has a natural repulsion for that.” This means then, to think the unthinked, the unsaid, the repressed by all the thinkers; questioning them again, starting from a constant vigilance, as Merleau-Ponty, and Hannah Arendt with him, wished when stating “we should concern ourselves with experiences more than doctrines”. And such experiences, as actual “crossings of the outside”, allow us today to distance ourselves from every reductio ad unum, every principle of sovereignty, every self-proclaimed state of exception.
The theoretical project, on which Shift. International Journal of Philosophical Studies, as a review, is founded, properly and consequently consists in the ability of providing the Readers with a different approach to crucial topics of our times, “replaying” “remodulating” “changing” – performing indeed a “shift” in the philosophical, political, ethical and aesthetical categories on which the Western world is founded. Categories that by now don't seem to be fit to stand the blow of our timeline. The notions of world, life, body, subject, nature, science, technics, religion, ethics, politics, economy – that bounce in front of us with more momentum than ever before – must be looked into starting from this very paradigm, that should be finally capable to face them with no qualms and fears, leaving behind us “the end of philosophy” and the “failure of meaning” and, with it, the crisis of any metaphysics of identity.
The shift – viewed in all its possible declinations and meanings: movement, slipping, change, transformation, crossing, mutation, renovation, passage, innovation, process – is, in this regard, the counterpoint, the calling into question for the thought, the acknowledgment of those that Albert Camus defined, in 1955, the ‘wandering values’. Thus rethinking – as mentioned – the fundamental categories and themes of philosophy. The latter, as stated by Deleuze, “has nothing to do with acceptance, with the realisation of the human condition. It needs to overcome that”. And if it needs to overcome that, than shift means: clearing the lines of flight, drawing becoming paths, facing the open sea – bringing up from the bottom of a thought the philosophical gesture of Plato's Symposium, which identified leaving the mainland with the highest truest philosophical achievement: Eros is a philosopher because he is homeless – aoikos – he sleeps in open air. No compass or map. The philosophical reflection is made of trajectories, movements, impetuses, volitions, curiosities, depositions of logoi, of reasonings.
The paradigm of the shift can help us face the weight of history, our more and less recent history, the weight of geopolitical manoeuvring unknown to the most, it can help us understand the ban on some trajectories or on entire cultural vectors. Perhaps it's time to set something in motion (to shift). The movement of thought hence becomes a poiein, a ‘making’ instead of a mere ‘standing’. If philosophy cannot give us a notion of world anymore, neither resolve its inconsistencies, its extreme chance in the time of its own ending, of its own failure, it can only be the opening of a space of thought that is absolutely movable, dialogically compromised, transitively surging. From thought to thought, from transition to transition, from movement to movement: the thought is not set, it approaches; it is, once again, zetetic, as conceived by the ancients, quantic, as conceived by today's theoretical physicists. It is possible that this thought has already started its journey, that it's already building a new world; we don't know, neither we will; perhaps, according to Nancy's words, we'll just do it, “through slow and deep spurs of existence's desires”.
