Meteorite-University of Michigan’s Undergraduate Philosophy Journal

Areté The Undergraduate Philosophy Journal of Rutgers University, is now accepting paper submissions for publication in its Spring 2019 issue. Approximately 3 papers will be published, digitally and in print (limited run).

Traditionally, only work from juniors and seniors is encouraged, as analytic rigor is a prerequisite for publication. That being said, any paper of exquisite quality from any field of philosophy is welcome for submission. We only require that the paper submitted is your work done for a traditional class, or your independent research during undergraduate studies.

Submissions should not exceed 8,000 words, with a cover page, abstract, and citations. For the purpose of blind review, do not include information in the text of your paper that identifies you as the author or the institution you attend. Please also include a separate document with your biographical information including institution and graduation date. Papers should be submitted via email attachment (from an email address we can use to correspond with you) in Word document or PDF format, to rundergrad.philo.journal@gmail.com by October 31st, 2018.

The authors of papers accepted for publication will be notified in December.


CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Stance: An International Undergraduate Philosophy Journal is produced and edited entirely by undergraduate students. We aim to enrich student learning by providing an opportunity for undergraduate students to have their original scholarly work reviewed by or published in a peer-reviewed academic journal.

Episteme is a student-run journal that aims to recognize and encourage excellence in undergraduate philosophy by providing examples of some of the best work currently being done in undergraduate philosophy programs. Episteme is published under the auspices of Denison University’s Department of Philosophy. We publish a journal in print each Spring. We are proud to announce the twenty-seventh volume of Episteme, which you can download from Episteme’s website. Specially requested print editions have been shipped. This year’s submissions spanned a diverse body of philosophical literature from philosophy of feminism to Kripke’s philosophy of language, and they included authors as far-flung from as the Kyoto University. We hope that an even broader host of students are encouraged to participate in the next volume.

Discussions is an undergraduate run, peer-reviewed research journal that publishes undergraduate research in all fields of study. Discussions publishes several times every year.

Lex Modestum is a student run undergraduate philosophy journal dedicated to providing opportunities to aspiring philosophers. We accept original philosophical works from undergraduate students in both Analytic and Continental strains of thought. Along with the traditional essay format, we are also interested in presenting unique philosophical ideas via original modes of presentation (e.g. dialogues, poems, artwork, and short stories).
