We are Simpliciter, a new undergraduate journal of philosophy at Brandeis University located in Waltham, Massachusetts. We aim to recognize excellent works of philosophy produced by undergraduates, and we are accepting submissions for our inaugural edition, to be published in the spring of 2024.

Why Simpliciter?

  1. Dedicated editing team. Our editing team is composed of Brandeis University undergraduates, who have studied under a highly-ranked philosophy department. We strive to give constructive feedback and to work closely and productively with authors whose submissions are accepted.

  2. Putting student works on the map. Too often quality undergraduate work in philosophy flies under the radar. At Simpliciter, we try to ensure that each author’s work is appreciated by a wider audience.

  3. Spring conference. In addition to authors whose works are accepted into the journal, a larger number of authors may be invited to present about their work at our spring/summer conference. Details to be finalized at a later date.
