Tao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy is an official publication of the Association of Chinese Philosophers in America, through the Global Publications of the State University of New York at Binghamton. The journal aims to serve as a bridge between Chinese philosophy/philosophers and non-Chinese philosophy/philosophers. Published semi-annually, it welcomes submissions from philosophers of all ethnic groups. The journal is dedicated to publish articles and book reviews in comparative studies between Chinese philosophy and any other philosophical traditions in the world, including but not limited to Western philosophy, Islamic philosophy, African philosophy, Indian philosophy, Japanese philosophy, and Korean philosophy, in any philosophical disciplines, including but not limited to metaphysics, epistemology, logic and philosophy of language, ethics, social and political philosophy, aesthetics, philosophy of religion, and philosophy of mind, as well as articles dealing with theories and methodologies of comparative philosophy.
All submissions to the journal will be blind-reviewed. At least two specialists, in addition to the editor, will read and evaluate each submission. Normally authors may expect to hear from the editor about the suitability of their submissions for publication in the journal in no more than two months. Authors should retain a copy of their manuscript, as no submissions will be returned. All submissions should be sent to: Yong Huang, editor, Tao: Journal of Comparative Philosophy, Department of Philosophy, Kutztown University, Kutztown, PA 19510; email: firstname.lastname@example.org; tel. (610) 683-4556; fax: (610) 683-4738.

Manuscripts should be double-spaced throughout, in the main text and in the apparatus, using normal fonts (12), and, in general, not exceeding 30 pages excluding bibliography.
