We accept submissions from current undergraduates, including Honours students, or those who have recently graduated from any university worldwide, so long as the paper was originally written while the author was an undergraduate. Papers that have previously been published, or are currently under consideration elsewhere, are not eligible for review or publication with UPJA. All contributors to co-authored papers must satisfy these eligibility criteria.
With the generous support of the Australasian Association of Philosophy (AAP), we will award two cash prizes for each issue: Best Paper (Overall) and Best Paper (Written by a Member of an Underrepresented Group in Philosophy). Both prizes may be awarded to the same author. If no papers selected for publication are written by authors eligible for the latter prize, this prize will not be awarded for that issue.
We also accept critical reply pieces to papers published in previous issues of UPJA. The word limit is 1,500–6,000. Reply pieces are subject to the same refereeing process as any other submissions.
