Stance seeks original philosophical papers authored by current undergraduates.

Submission Guidelines:

Stance welcomes papers concerning any philosophical topic. Current undergraduates may submit a paper between 1500 and 3500 words in length (footnotes may extend the word limit 500 words at most). Stance asks that each undergraduate only submit one paper for the journal per year. Papers should avoid unnecessary technicality and strive to be accessible to the widest possible audience without sacrificing clarity or rigor. They are evaluated on the following criteria: depth of inquiry, quality of research/academic rigor, creativity, lucidity, struggle, significance, and, most importantly, originality.

Submission Procedures:

This year, Stance is utilizing a new system to better manage paper submissions and correspondence with authors. As such, we have updated our submission procedures. Instructions for submitting your paper can be found at under “Call for Papers.”
