The Laboratorio dell’ISPF (ISPF-LAB) is the online journal of the Institute for the History of Philosophy and Science in Modern Age (ISPF) of the Italian National Research Council (CNR). Issued since 2004, it publishes classic texts and original contributions (essays and research instruments) in the fields of philosophy and the humanities. Since 2012, it hosts a section dedicated to materials produced by the ISPF Observatory on the Humanities.

 The articles, accepted after a peer review process, are published under a Creative Commons license (except for rare cases of materials granted to our journal with a limited licence) and comply with the standards of the Budapest Initiative for Open Access.  Authors retain all the rights of use of their work, with the sole obligation to mention its first publication. Articles approved before the closing of each issue are published as “online first”. An average time of at least twelve weeks is to be expected between the presentation of the paper and its publication.

The journal accepts articles in Italian and in other languages, with no charges for the authors. The texts, composed in accordance with the Code of conduct and the editorial criteria, shall be sent to the address lab[at], where any other journal related communications can be directed.

In 2014 it was inaugurated the supplements series I Quaderni del Lab, which is the first ebook series edited by the ISPF and follows - at a different scale - the same scientific program of the journal.

The ISPF-LAB is part of the Coordination Committee of Italian Journals of Philosophy (CORIFI) and is among the signatories of the Statement on Quality and Evaluation approved in July 2018.
