ubmission Guidelines

In addition to conference papers, we are now accepting feature submissions for the Spring Issue on the topic of PHILOSOPHY AND RELIGION! Interested? Click Here to see guidelines.

Do you often suffer from existential crises? Agonize over moral dilemmas? Worry that if you stop thinking, you will stop existing?

Then submit your papers to Aporia, Dartmouth's Undergraduate Journal of Philosophy!

  • We do not maintain any rights of copyright or ownership over your work that would prohibit you from submitting elsewhere, or using your work as you choose.

  • All papers submitted will be considered continuously as the publication publishes; any essay not immediately used, may be considered for future issues.

  • Aporia maintains the right to edit or modify your papers to fit into the format and style of our issue. We will have our editors work closely with you, respect your ownership of the work, and offer up the paper for a final approval--- but the last discretion on whether your edits are sufficient for publication, lies with our individual editors.

  • We do not specify, limit, or constrict submission lengths, but we may contact you about publishing only excerpts of your work, especially if you are submitting a senior thesis or other major effort. Please consider selecting a portion for publication (specify clearly within), prior to submission.

  • Please cite all your sources! We use Chicago style notes, please format your work into appropriate endnotes following the style:
