Publishing Opportunities

The library at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln has a great guide to undergraduate philosophy journals here: https://unl.libguides.com/c.php?g=51642&p=333917

Check this resource out for ongoing research on publishing your undergraduate work.

 

Dialogue accepts articles by undergraduate or graduate students of philosophy, but not from those with terminal degrees (a terminal M.A. or a doctorate). Topics may be in any area of contemporary interest in philosophy or its history. Membership in Phi Sigma Tau is not a condition for publication. Authors are encouraged to use gender-inclusive language. For matters of style, please consult the latest version of The Chicago Manual of Style.

Prospective authors should email a copy of their paper to the editor. Any word processing format is acceptable though RTF (rich text format) or WORD files are preferred. The texts for papers should be double-spaced throughout (including quotations and notes), and with notes gathered at the end. Special symbols and characters in non-Roman alphabets should be avoided. Greek terms should be transliterated. Authors should also send a SUBMISSION SHEET containing:

Author’s name, mailing address, and phone number
(with email address if available).
TITLE of the paper submitted.
A brief ABSTRACT of fifteen lines or less.
A brief AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL STATEMENT.

Hard copies are acceptable, but they must be accompanied by a disk copy of the paper. If a disk copy of the paper is sent, the disk label should contain: (1) Author Name; (2) Disk format (e.g., DOS, MAC, UNIX); and (3) Formatting software and version. The author’s name should not appear on the manuscript copies, which cannot be returned. Authors should enclose a self-addressed postcard if they want immediate acknowledgment of receipt of their manuscripts.

Offprints are not available, but authors of articles will receive ten copies of the complete issue containing their article (reviewers, five copies). Abstracts of articles will be supplied for indexing to The Philosopher’s Index.

The Hemlock from the University of Idaho is in search of original philosophical papers authored by current undergraduates. Selected papers will appear in the journal’s nineteenth volume.

Website: http://www.uidaho.edu/class/philosophy/hemlockpapers  

Submission Guidelines: The Hemlock is open to papers from all branches of philosophy. We aim to publish essays that can be read and understood by a general audience, so please keep technicality to a minimum. Papers will be peer-reviewed. Papers should be between 1000 and 5000 words in length. The Hemlock would appreciate that only one paper be submitted per applicant.  

Submission Requirements:

 Manuscripts should be double-spaced and typed in 12-point font. 

  The right margin should not be justified. 

  We strongly prefer footnotes to endnotes. Any uniform citation style is acceptable. 

  Papers will be peer-reviewed anonymously, so we request that you submit manuscripts with a cover page including name, affiliation, email, and title. Please remove any identifiers from the main text of the paper that would suggest its author.  

  Please submit your paper with a short abstract. 

DEADLINE: January 15, 2024

Papers should be sent as an attachment to jame2510@vandals.uidaho.edu in a Microsoft Word (.doc/.docx) or Adobe PDF format.

The merits of a paper are assessed on the basis of argumentation, clarity, organization of writing, and novelty.
