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.

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).
