Bilkent University Undergraduate Journal of Philosophy

Submissions | Call for Papers

We now accept submissions for our second issue! The deadline is November 19, 2020.

Check our first issue here.

Among the kinds of philosophical work we accept are original papers, book and article reviews. You can submit your work either in English or Turkish. We also accept translations of philosophical work from any language to Turkish or Turkish to English. You may submit as many works as you like.

If you would like to submit anything other than original paper(s), please contact us with the details of your work(s). Doing so will highly increase the chances that your work is accepted. Also, make sure to see our previous issues and the kind(s) of work we publish. If you would like to submit an original paper, please take a careful look at our submission guidelines below.

The submission deadline for the second issue is November 19, 2020.

You can send all your submissions to prokoptonjournal [at] gmail [dot] com.

Eligibility for Submission

You need to be an undergraduate student in the year of the issue you send your work for. For example, you must be an undergraduate student in at least some part of 2021 in order for us to consider your work for our current issue, which is going to be published in 2021. Undergraduate authors from all fields (not just philosophy) are welcome to submit their work. However, we also accept essays from high school students in some exceptional cases.

Submission Guidelines

These guidelines are for authors planning to submit an original paper. Please contact us if you would like to submit anything other than an original paper.

We accept philosophical papers of any length and any topic that have a clear thesis and argument(s). However, we normally publish papers that are between 2000 and 4000 words.

Before submitting your paper, please make sure that all stylistic features of the paper conform to the features of the Prokopton Sample Original Paper.

In the last phase, we evaluate submissions mainly in terms of the clarity of writing and the quality of argumentation.
