Northern Plains Ethics Journal


mail iconDennis Cooley, Director

The Northern Plains Ethics Journal’s editorial board welcomes submissions in the humanities focusing on ethical issues affecting the Northern Plains - very broadly understood - for the 2016 edition of the journal. Submissions need not be focused solely upon the United States of America’s Northern Plains, but the ethical issues which the submissions address should be made relevant to the region.

The Northern Plains Ethics Journal is the first peer-reviewed ethics and philosophy journal in North Dakota.  The NPEJ’s mission is to create a high-quality dedicated publication platform to promote democratic participation in social and ethical issues affecting the Northern Plains and beyond.

To fulfill this charge, the NPEJ has become a marketplace for the accumulation, dissemination, discussion, and recognition of scholarship, ideas, and other work related to ethical issues affecting the USA’s Northern Plains. The NPEJ’s provides a broad foundation for accessing work related to understanding and investigating past and present social and ethical issues, which is instrumental and critical in finding solutions for challenges faced by communities in the region, country, and world.

Submissions and questions should be sent by email to Professor Dennis Cooley, Managing Editor, at by no later than 31 August 2016.  There is no limit to word length.

Accepted papers should conform to the journal’s style standards found at the website:
