Stance: An International Undergraduate Philosophy Journal

The Stance Experience

Stance’s anonymous, multiple peer-review process provides contributors with a professional learning experience. The undergraduate students who compose the editorial board of Stance are trained in specific editorial skills including line-editing, content evaluation, professional communication, and independent research. Several reviewers examine each contributed paper, and every paper that is published will have met exacting “Revise and Resubmit” requirements. The author of each paper is given constructive feedback, even the authors of papers that are rejected. We accept essays on a wide variety of topics to not only give students a chance to display their work, but also to give them an opportunity to see work that may be surprisingly different from their own.
