Arete: The Undergraduate Journal of Rutgers University

Arete, The Undergraduate Philosophy Journal of Rutgers University, is now accepting paper submissions for publication in its Spring 2012 issue. On the order of 5 papers will be published, on the internet and in print (limited run).

Traditionally only work from college upperclassmen is encouraged. Analytic rigor is prerequisite for publication. Papers from any field of philosophy are welcome.

Submissions should not exceed 8,000 words, with a cover page, abstract, and citations in Chicago format. Please do not include information in the text of your paper that identifies the author or the institution you attend. Submit papers by attachment, (from an email address we can use to correspond with you) in Word document or PDF format, to rundergrad.philo.journal@gmail.com by September 16th, 2011.

We will email you on or shortly after that date to confirm our receipt of your paper. Based on the number of submissions we have received in the past, it will take us some time to read all the papers submitted for this issue. Consequently the authors of papers accepted for publication will be notified in December.
