Prolegomena 2012 open for submissions

Prolegomena is the undergraduate philosophy journal published by the University of British Columbia Philosophy Students’ Association. Although Prolegomena has always been an open access journal, it has been re-launched this year as a blog interface to allow readers to engage in critical discussion online about the articles posted.

We are currently accepting submissions for our 2012 journal. Papers on a wide range of philosophical issues, including book reviews of philosophical works published in the last five years, are welcome from undergraduate students at any post-secondary institution. Submissions should be sent via electronic mail to by April 6, 2012 and should adhere to the guidelines detailed below.

Submission guidelines:

  • Online submissions only;
  • Citations in standard, consistent style (APA style preferred);
  • In separate document, please include brief biographical information (name, university, year and program of study, philosophical interests);
  • Word limit: 1,500 – 5,000 words for articles and 800 – 2,000 words for book reviews.

Submissions are reviewed by the UBC Philosophy Students’ Association editorial board and if accepted, may be returned to the author for corrections if needed.
