Are you interested in seeing your ideas in print?  Want to submit a philosophy paper to a journal but not sure what to do next?  If you are reading this, you are probably already familiar with the Macalester Journal of Philosophy.  This list of other undergraduate journals will help you get started in thinking about what might be the best fit for your work.  If you are a senior and interested in submitting your capstone paper to one of these journals, please note that some of them have deadlines in the Fall. 

We appreciate your help in keeping this list up-to-date! If you have information about an undergraduate journal whose name does not appear below, just send Toni Schranz an e-mail
