The APA Committee on LGBTQ People in the Profession invites APA members to submit papers, book reviews, or professional notes for publication in the APA Newsletter on LGBTQ Issues in Philosophy. Submissions may examine issues in the areas of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, gender, and sexuality studies, or address issues of concern for LGBTQ people in the profession. The committee seeks quality paper submissions for anonymous review by committee members. Reviews and notes should address recent books, current events, or emerging trends. Members who give papers at APA divisional meetings are encouraged to submit their work by the deadlines below.
Spring issues: December 15. Fall issues: May 15. These deadlines are based on the deadlines set by the APA national office for submitting materials for publication. Decisions will be made within 30 days of the deadline, and authors will be notified shortly thereafter.
Papers should be no more than 7,500 words. Reviews and notes should be limited to 3,000 words. Submissions should use endnotes rather than footnotes or parenthetical citations. All papers must be prepared for anonymous review.
