Ratio is a leading international journal of analytic philosophy edited by Professor David S. Oderberg.

Ratio publishes high-quality work on a wide variety of topics within analytic philosophy but occasionally includes articles from other traditions and perspectives. It encourages submissions that meet the highest standards of philosophical rigour, whilst at the same time remaining accessible to readers with a broad range of philosophical interests.

 The journal appears quarterly, including a special issue in December devoted to a theme of special philosophical importance and featuring invited contributions from leading authorities in the field.

The nucleus for each special issue consists of papers given at the one-day conference organised each year by the Philosophy Department at the University of Reading. The special issue is nearly always guest edited by a member of the Department.
