In addition to our weekly forums that make interventions into public life and culture, Ethos also publishes a peer-reviewed, open-access journal that is released in April and October of each year. Our journal serves as a venue for scholars, artists, and other intellectuals to practice the discipline of cultural studies for a wider audience and to sustain an ongoing conversation about the social institutions and inequities that characterize our contemporary moment. We are looking for essays that make interventions in public life through scholarly reflection on any discipline in the humanities, although we also seek interdisciplinary work concerned with culture and ethical thought.
Our journal is devoted to bridging the gap between public and scholarly discourse. To that end, Ethos hopes to inspire intellectual debate through essays written in lucid, jargon-free prose. Essays submitted for publication should be between 4,000 and 7,000 words. Extensive endnotes are discouraged. Manuscripts should not include authors’ names; instead, please include a cover letter with the name of the author(s) , a brief bio, abstract (no more than 350 words), and contact information.
Manuscripts, prepared according to the MLA Manual and Guide to Scholarly Publishing, should be submitted in either document (.doc, .docx) or .rtf format. Please send all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Readers may republish material according to standard U.S. fair use legislation. Applications for further use and permissions should be made to the author(s) of the article.
The inaugural issue of our journal is now available here. Our October 2014 issue will be forthcoming soon. We are also pleased to invite submissions for our April 2015 issue. The deadline for submission is December 14, 2014.
