Topic areas


This year, California State University, Northridge (CSUN) is pleased to announce their upcoming undergraduate philosophy journal. The journal welcomes papers from undergraduate students from any colleges and universities in California! 

The purpose of the journal is to offer philosophy students an opportunity to participate in the publication of their papers. It is a great opportunity to add this experience to your resume/CV or enhance your writing sample for graduate school. The title of the journal will be based on the common themes of the accepted papers. The journal will be tentatively published online in the fall of 2017.  

 Please send your best papers (including abstracts) to by Sunday, October 15th to be considered. Papers (and abstracts) will be evaluated for publication based on a blind peer review. If your paper is selected, you will be contacted by at least one editor after Sunday, October 22nd.
