Request from Australia

We’re currently seeking submissions for our next issue, both original articles and critical reply pieces to articles published in previous issues. 

With the generous support of the Australasian Association of Philosophy (AAP), we will award two cash prizes for Volume 2, Issue 2: Best Paper (Overall) and Best Paper (Written by a Member of an Underrepresented Group in Philosophy). We accept submissions from current undergraduates, including Honours students, or those who have recently graduated from any university worldwide, on any philosophical topic. Submissions from women and other members of underrepresented groups in philosophy, including those for whom English is not their first language, are particularly encouraged.

We are also seeking referee applications from interested students, both undergraduate and graduate, as well as those who have recently graduated. Following the strong international response to our previous issue, we have now extended our referee eligibility criteria to include students from institutions worldwide! 

You will be expected to review 3-4 papers over a period of roughly a month in September/October 2020 in your nominated field(s). You will be asked to make comments on the paper, suggest revisions to the author, and return a verdict to the editors. No prior experience is needed and guidelines will be provided. Your contribution will be recognised in the front pages of the journal.

Further details can be found on our website. The deadline for submissions and applications is September 13th, 23:59 AEST (UTC +10).
