Call for Papers

Another one for you guys.


Episteme, an International Journal of Undergraduate Philosophy, announces the scheduled publication of volume XXI, May 2010.

Episteme will consider papers written by undergraduate students in any area of philosophy. Papers are evaluated according to quality of research, depth of inquiry, creativity, original insight and clarity. Submissions should:

1. Remain under the 5,000 words maximum.

2. Include a cover sheet with the author's name, mailing address (current and permanent), email address, telephone number, college or university name, submission title, and word count.

3. End with a Works Cited page in Chicago style. Please use endnotes rather than footnotes.

4. Arrive electronically by midnight on 11/15/09 to the e-mail address as a Microsoft Word attachment.

Episteme is an annual student-run publication, founded in 1990, that aims to recognize and encourage excellence in undergraduate philosophy by providing students and faculty with examples of strong work.
