A text to be publicized via JTB-FORUM should be electronically submitted (preferably in the form of a TXT file) to any of the Managing Editors of the forum. It should take the form of a few page essay or note. The managing editor will accept (or reject) the submitted material on the basis of her/his personal judgement of both the quality and clarity of the presentation.

Things published at JTB-FORUM might be submitted (in their original or revised form) for publication to any regular journal. No permission is required. The author is requested to mention the fact that JTB-FORUM was the place where the ideas of the paper were initially exhibited.

JTB-FORUM is divided into five Sections: (1) Foundationalism: Pros & Cons; (2) Mind and Cognition; (3) Discourse, Logic and Cognition; (4) Justification; (5) Truth.
