Pensées Canadiennes, the Canadian national undergraduate journal of philosophy.

Pensées Canadiennes, the Canadian national undergraduate journal of philosophy, is now accepting submissions for its upcoming volume, which will be published April 2016 and distributed across Canada.

The journal is not restricted to any philosophical discipline, historical period, or methodology. We look for papers on any philosophical topic that demonstrate precision, excellent scholarship and originality. Pensées accepts submissions in either French or English. A national editing team will select the papers by anonymous peer review process.

We accept submissions from any undergraduate philosophy student enrolled in a Canadian university as of December 31st, 2015.

Papers submitted for consideration must:

  1. Have received an A-range grade (though it is strongly recommended that even such papers be substantially revised prior to submission)
  2. Be between 4,000 and 7,500 words in length including footnotes and citation information (exceptions and small allowances may be made for truly outstanding scholarly work)
  3. Be prepared for anonymous review (i.e., no author-identifying information or notes in the body of the paper), and Formatted in accordance with the Chicago manual of style.

The failure to comply with any of these requirements will work strongly against the applicant, and papers most likely to be selected for publishing are those that present and defend rigorously original arguments, though especially insightful exegetical work will be accepted.

In addition to this, on a separate cover page, please include:

  1. The author's full name
  2. The submitted paper's title
  3. The word count of the paper
  4. A brief abstract (~100 words describing topic discussed in paper)
  5. Academic status (year of study), major, university affiliation
  6. An email address where we can reach you

Successful applicants will be provided with a copy of reviewer comments and suggested revisions, at which point publication of the accepted paper will be contingent upon timely acceptance of a revised draft.

Submissions should be sent to journal@penseescanadiennes.com prior to January 15, 2016. We look forward to reading your papers!
