Undergraduate Journal CFP – The Hemlock

Welcome Cartographers!

We recently received this call for papers for undergraduate submissions! Note that the deadline is Tuesday, January 7th, 2020. In other words, this is a great opportunity to submit final papers from Fall 2019!


The Hemlock is a student-run philosophy journal based at the University of Idaho. We are in search of original philosophical papers authored by current undergraduates

The Hemlock’s call for papers this year is open to any topic in philosophy. We aim to publish essays that can be read and understood by a general educated audience. Papers must be philosophical in nature and self standing. All submissions will be peer-reviewed in anonymity. Acceptance for publication will be based on the following criteria: creativity, originality, pertinence, quality, and depth. The Hemlock would appreciate that only one paper be submitted per applicant.

DEADLINE: January 7, 2020

    • Word count: 750-3000
    • Any Citations are in a standard format, Ex. Chicago, MLA, etc. (only if applicable)
