UCPR Call for Papers, jpg final.jpg
The University of Chicago Undergraduate Philosophy Review (UCPR) is now accepting submissions for our Spring 2018 Issue.

We welcome submissions from all undergraduate students. Essays discussing political philosophy, political theory, and ethics will be considered. The UCPR is an interdisciplinary journal; as such, submissions from non-philosophy departments are encouraged.

Submission Requirements: Papers should not exceed 8,000 words; shorter work encouraged. Please include an abstract of no more than 300 words and a cover page with the following information: title, author name, university affiliation, email address, word count. The author’s name and any other identifying information should appear only on the cover page. In order to facilitate blind review, please send two versions: one with an identifying cover page and one without. Essays should use footnotes and Chicago-style citations.

Please email submissions to in .doc(x) format by January 12th, 2018.
