Submission deadline: September 10, 2012

Topic areas


The prize is established in memory of a young man executed for his ideas and political ideals. The winning entry receives a cash prize of €1500, publication in the journal, and promotion on the journal’s Taylor & Francis website.  

The topic for the 2012 prize is Integrity.  

Scholarly essays from all philosophical approaches – analytic, continental, historical -- are welcome. Submit your paper by email to [email protected]  

Submissions should not be under consideration for publication elsewhere and should not be submitted to any other journal until the outcome of the competition is known. 

All submitted papers will be evaluated, in the first instance, by the journal’s editorial board. The top 5 papers will be nominated for the Prize and will be judged by a jury consisting of three members of the journal’s advisory board. The jury will evaluate the papers on the originality of the paper, its engagement with the announced topic and the contribution it makes to scholarship in the field, the quality of the argumentation and conceptual clarity.  

The decision of the jury will be final. There is only one prize per year and the jury reserves the right to award no prize at all if submitted material is not of an appropriate standard.  

Runner-up papers will be considered for publication in IJPS.  

Word limit: 6000-9000 words, including notes and references.  

Closing date for submissions: September 10, 2012. Papers must be submitted by e-mail to [email protected] 

Please indicate clearly in the subject line that you wish to have the paper considered for the Essay Prize. Make sure that the essay is modified for double blind review, and that it has an abstract.  

For more information about the prize, please contact the editor of the journal, Professor Maria Baghramian at [email protected] 

The winner of the prize will be announced on January 21, 2012 via the IJPS website at /riph as well as at other appropriate venues. The winning entry will be published as the lead article in Volume 22, Issue 2 of the International Journal of Philosophical Studies.
