The national awarding-winning, international undergraduate philosophy journal Stance (stance.iweb.bsu.edu) is now taking applications from exceptional undergraduates to serve as external reviewers. Please forward the Call for Reviewers, below, to your talented advanced undergraduates.

CALL FOR REVIEWERS

Stance seeks undergraduate philosophy students to serve as external reviewers. This is an exciting pre-professional learning opportunity. Reviewers hone their writing, researching, and reviewing skills by serving on a groundbreaking journal. Reviewers must have advanced undergraduate experience in philosophy, strengths in writing and editing, and the self-motivation necessary to complete work by given deadlines. As such, in addition to this application form, one letter of recommendation is required.

Chosen reviewers will be given one of two opportunities. Most will be External Reviewers and will be responsible for reviewing one or two papers in early January. A few will be selected to serve as Assistant Editorial Board Members on our review teams. Assistant Editorial Board Members will consider approximately 20 papers in December. All reviewers receive training material that explains what is expected in the formal review. Reviewers will also be credited in both the print and electronic versions of the journal.

If you are interested, please provide us with the following information:

Name:
Name of School:
Year in School:
Major(s)/Minor(s):
Philosophy Courses Taken:
What is your specialty or concentration?
What experience do you have that would qualify you for this project?
What goals do you have that working on Stance will support?

(1) return this application to ballstatestance@gmail.com (include “External Reviewer Application” as the subject heading) and
