Call for Papers

On Politics is opening its 2nd call for papers for Vol. 15. Now is your chance to have your work featured! Submission deadline has been extended by one (1) day to January 28th, 23:59 pm.


If you’re a current UVic student or a recent graduate (Class of 2021), you have the opportunity to get your words in print and work with peers, faculty, and mentors to publish in UVic’s best (and only) undergrad Political Science journal.


We are excited to continue our partnership with Canadian International Council (CIC) Victoria. If selected, you may have an opportunity to have your work reviewed by a CIC member, many of whom have government, diplomatic, military, business, and academic backgrounds. They have agreed to provide their experienced perspective to our journal alongside our traditional UVic partners. 

Submission Requirements:

Submissions must have received at least an A- in a 200-level or higher class at UVic and be 1500-4500 words. We encourage folks to submit papers written from courses in other disciplines outside of PoliSci, ranging from Indigenous Studies, Sociology, Gender Studies, History, Environmental Studies, and more. As long as it’s political in nature!**

The paper must not be under consideration or published elsewhere. Please send only one (1) submission to our editorial assistant, Do NOT send submissions to More detailed requirements here:


Submissions must include:

Your paper in Word Doc. format (.docx)

A brief summary (100 words or less) about your paper

**If not a POLI paper: a brief description (100 words or less) as to why your paper is political in nature


In consideration of our continuing commitments to anti-racist action: feel free to indicate if you are a member of an equity-seeking group. We take this into consideration during our selection process, alongside our commitment to showcasing exemplary undergraduate scholarship. On Pol receives a high number of quality submissions every year, and we hope especially to publish and highlight BIPOC undergraduate work whenever possible.


Our editors are looking forward to reading your submissions!
