As such, we especially encourage submissions from members of groups underrepresented in the philosophy profession, including but not limited to: people of color, women, queer and gender non-conforming people, people from economically-disadvantaged groups, and people with disabilities.

We also encourage submissions on topics that are undertheorized in the profession.
