Submission Guidelines and Information
The APA Newsletter on Philosophy and the Black Experience is published by the committee on the status of black philosophers. Philosophers are encouraged to submit original articles, book reviews, and letters to the editor on any topic in philosophy that makes a contribution to philosophy and the black experience broadly construed. In addition to traditional articles and book reviews in African American and Africana philosophy, and as long as the article or book review is in dialogue with the black experience broadly construed, this includes articles and book reviews that explore topics from within the analytic tradition, the continental tradition, and within the history of Western/no-Western philosophical traditions. This also includes articles on the profession of philosophy.
All articles undergo anonymous peer review; submissions should be prepared accordingly. Publication decisions are made by the co-editors, typically within three months. All submissions should be limited to 5,000 words and must follow the APA guidelines for gender-neutral language and The Chicago Manual of Style formatting. Submissions should be accompanied by a short biographical summary of the author. Please send submissions electronically to [email protected].
Fall issues: April 1

The APA newsletters adhere to The Chicago Manual of Style.
Use as little formatting as possible. Details like page numbers, headers, footers, and columns will be added later. Use tabs instead of multiple spaces for indenting. Use italics instead of underlining. Use an em dash (—) instead of a double hyphen (--).
Use endnotes instead of footnotes. Examples of proper endnote style:
John Rawls, A Theory of Justice (Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 1971), 90.
