Author Guidelines

We will consider papers from any and all areas of philosophy. Papers should not exceed 4000 words and must be accompanied by an abstract. Only submissions by current undergraduates will be considered. Please send in digital format (.doc, .pdf, .odt). Submissions that are purely exegetical (i.e. do not contain original argumentative work) will not be considered for publication.

Please contact the department for further details.

Submissions can be sent to uvicsophia@gmail.com.

 

Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  1. The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  2. The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, RTF, PDF, or WordPerfect document file format.
  3. Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  4. The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  5. If submitting to a peer-reviewed section of the journal, the instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review have been followed.
