compos mentis


Two issues of Compos Mentis: Undergraduate Journal of Cognition and Neuroethics (ISSN: 2330-0264) are published every year. Papers on any topic of philosophy are welcome.

Both the conference and open issues of the Compos Mentis journal are entirely managed by undergraduate students affiliated with the Philosophy Department at the University of Michigan-Flint.

To support the intellectual education of undergraduates, Compos Mentis does not charge authors publications fees. Accessing all Compos Mentis publications is free and open to the public.

The purpose of Compos Mentis is to is to support and encourage the intellectual work of undergraduates, so everything submitted should be the work of undergraduate students only.


Mandatory Submission Formatting Requirements

Submitted papers must be in strict conformity with the CCN Formatting Requirements and prepared for blind review. Citations must exactly replicate the formatting as exemplified on the CCN Formatting Requirements page. We require that papers be between 4,000 and 7,000 words in length. Include with the paper an abstract up to 300 words and up to 10 key words/terms. Articles submitted to Compos Mentis must use the Chicago Manual of Style author-date system. In this system, in-text citations are parenthetical (not footnoted as it would be in notes-bibliography) and include the author's last name and the year of publication, and the page or page-range: e.g., (Williams 1995), (Smith 1992, 45–47), (Williams 1995, 80; Smith 1992). Citations are assembled on a references page (the references page takes the author-date style, not Chicago notes-bibliography style, and not MLA works cited).


Conference Issue

The conference issue of Compos Mentis is intended to be a counterpart to the presentation experience, serving as an outlet for students’ fully developed work. Papers presented as talks at the annual Michigan Undergraduate Philosophy Conference (MUPC) are eligible to be submitted and reviewed for publication in the May/June issue of the Compos Mentis: Undergraduate Journal of Cognition and Neuroethics. Before submitting papers for publication in the conference issue, presenters are asked to thoroughly revise their papers in light of any comments, questions, objections, or criticism that conference participants offer regarding their presentation. The purpose of this format is to emphasize the importance of the critical process of writing a philosophical article, rather than merely displaying the paper as it is initially submitted.

Open Issue

We also publish an open issue of the Compos Mentis journal that includes papers by undergraduate students who did not present at the annual MUPC. Because the papers eligible for inclusion in the open issue will not have been presented at the MUPC, we expect the papers submitted to have been thoroughly revised and polished. We recommend working with a faculty mentor and with peers to further develop the work you submit to the open issue. This issue is released in April/May of each year and features articles written by undergraduate students affiliated with any institution in the world.

The deadline for paper submission is March 31, 2019.
