Stance: An International Undergraduate Philosophy Journal is produced and edited entirely by undergraduate students. We aim to enrich student learning by providing an opportunity for undergraduate students to have their original work reviewed by or published in a peer-reviewed academic journal.

The Stance Experience
The undergraduate editors of Stance are trained in specific editorial skills, including line-editing, content evaluation, professional communication, and independent research. Several reviewers examine each contributed paper. Contributors are given constructive feedback, even if the paper is rejected. For accepted and ‘revise and resubmit’ papers, the feedback is typically substantial. The editor-in-chief of Stance ensures that all questions are answered professionally and in a timely manner.

Submission Guidelines
Stance seeks papers concerning any philosophical topic. However, not every paper that earns an “A” in an undergraduate course is right for us. A Stance paper will go above and beyond an “A” with regard to originality, depth, and audience appeal. Current undergraduates may submit papers between 1500 and 3500 words in length. The deadline for submissions is mid-December, initial review is completed in early February, and publication is in April. Send manuscripts to
