The proceedings are being published annually since 2009 by the European Society for Aesthetics (please see below for full contact details).

They are registered with the Swiss ISSN Centre of the Swiss National Library (ISSN number: 1664 – 5278) and are indexed by EBSCO, the Electronic Journals Database and Google Scholar.

The proceedings are an Open Access Journal in the sense defined by the Budapest Open Access Initiative. This means that readers have the right to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search and link to the full texts of the published articles.

Editorial Policy

All papers selected for presentation at the ESA conferences are eligible for inclusion in the proceedings of the respective year. The papers for the conferences are selected through standard blind review by the members of the Editorial Committee and experts in the relevant fields.

The publication of a paper in the proceedings does not deprive the author(s) from their right to publish it – or a revised version of it – elsewhere. Reference to the ESA is not required in any case. All copyrights remain with the author(s).
