Parrhesia: A Journal of Critical Philosophy

General submission guidelines:

ESSAYS Parrhesia welcomes submissions and enquiries from academics and graduate students. As an independent journal without dedicated staff, we ask that contributors observe the following submission procedure closely:

1. We ask prospective contributors to send a short (250 word) abstract that includes a bionote to which
the editors will respond. Please call this file surname_abstract, and provide it in word format (eg. bartlett_abstract.doc), and email it to

2. If the editors feel that the proposed piece may be suitable for an up-coming edition of Parrhesia then you will be invited by a member of the editorial board to contribute the full article.
This submission:

- must abide in full with our style guide and referencing guidelines (see below) - failure to do so will
not only delay the publication of this piece but may also delay the issue of the journal in which it will appear;

- should not include your name or indicate your authorship, and should be once again emailed to with the filename 'surname_article' (eg. bartlett_article.doc);

- should be relatively clean in terms of formatting, in 12pt Arial or Times. Avoid using more complex
formatting such as paragraph styles;

- should have obtained permission for any included copyrighted material (images, for example).

3. The editors will then send this article off to be double-blind refereed. On the basis of the advice provided by the referees, the editors will decide whether the piece is appropriate for Parrhesia. If this is the case, we will then work with the contributor to see the article through to final publication.

FEATURES Parrhesia publishes articles, translations and interviews as a part of our 'Features' section. These pieces are not refereed and we ask that you liaise with the submissions editor if you would like to suggest an interview or translation. As we receive no institutional support we are unable to pay for permissions to publish pieces whose copyright is not held by the author. Consequently, we require translators to secure rights before submitting translations. In addition, Parrhesia has the policy of proofreading translations submitted to the journal with an eye to fidelity, so we ask that you also provide the original language version along with the English text.

REVIEWS Parrhesia is now accepting proposals for reviews of new book publications. In general, the authors of book reviews should pursue a review copy from the publishers themselves. We also publish, on an occasional basis, Review Essays, which are longer than standard book reviews and are fully refereed.
