About PhilArchive

PhilArchive is the largest Open Access Archive in philosophy. PhilArchive was first launched in 2009 as the PhilPapers Archive, the archive integrated into the PhilPapers bibliographic database. In 2017, we relaunched it as a separate site. PhilArchive remains integrated with PhilPapers behind the scenes: every paper added to PhilArchive is automatically added to the PhilPapers database, and every paper added to PhilPapers along with an uploaded open access copy is automatically added to PhilArchive. All philosophers are encouraged to archive their work on PhilArchive in order to increase its accesibility to the philosophical community. PhilArchive is a completely free service operated on a non-profit basis, and it will always be completely free. Viewers do not need to create an account, provide an email address, or jump through any other hoops in order to read papers archived on PhilArchive. See our Frequently Asked Questions page for more information on PhilArchive.
