Undergraduate Journal: CALL FOR REVIEWERS

Stance: An International Undergraduate Philosophy Journal,

Stance seeks undergraduate philosophy students to serve as external reviewers. This is an exciting pre-professional learning opportunity. Reviewers hone their writing, researching, and reviewing skills by serving on a groundbreaking journal. Reviewers must have advanced undergraduate experience in philosophy, strengths in writing and editing, and the self-motivation necessary to complete work by given deadlines. We invite applications and the accompanying letter of recommendation. 
Chosen reviewers will be given one of two opportunities. Most will be External Reviewers and will be responsible for reviewing one or two papers in January. A few will be selected to serve as Assistant Editorial Board Members on our review teams. Assistant Editorial Board Members will consider approximately 25 papers over in December. All reviewers receive training material that explains what is expected in the formal review process. Reviewers will also be credited in both the print and electronic versions of the journal.

To apply, the student should: 
(1) return an application (see below) to (include "External Reviewer Application" as the subject heading) and 
(2) arrange for a philosophy professor to send a letter of recommendation to (include "LOR" as the subject heading for recommendation letter).
