The Hemlock Papers is soliciting submissions from undergraduates for its fall 2014 issue. If you teach undergraduates, please let them know. This might be an especially nice opportunity for students who plan to apply for graduate school this fall, as this issue is scheduled for release by December 1 of this year.

Many thanks, Graham Hubbs


The Hemlock Papers is a student-run philosophy journal based at the University of Idaho. We are in search of original philosophical papers authored by current undergraduates. Selected papers will appear in the journal’s fifteenth volume, the first to be published since 2010.

DEADLINE: October 3, 2014

See below the fold for submission information.

Submission Guidelines:

The Hemlock Papers is open to 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. Acceptance for publication will be based on the following criteria: creativity, originality, pertinence, quality, and depth. Papers should not exceed 5000 words, including footnotes. We ask that only one paper be submitted per applicant.

Submission Procedures:

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

A brief abstract should be included on the manuscript’s first page.

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 title page including name, affiliation, email, and title. Please remove any identifiers from the main text of the paper that would suggest its author.

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