Northern Plains Ethics Journal

About the Journal: Mission


The mission of the NPEJ is to create a high-quality dedicated publication platform to promote democratic participation in social and ethical issues affecting the Northern Plains and beyond, including, of course, the entire state of North Dakota.

To succeed at this mission, the NPEJ hopes to become a marketplace for the accumulation, dissemination, discussion, and recognition of scholarly work, ideas, and other work related to ethics affecting communities in North Dakota.

Main objectives of the journal:

By creating a journal with three sections, each stakeholder group can present their ideas to a larger audience than they otherwise will have.  As a result, scholars will have greater resources in publishing and research, in addition to the valuable resource base students and the general public with an interest in ethical issues can find online. More importantly, it allows people to engage in humanities discussions that they might not otherwise encounter. The journal will also provide an avenue for interested parties from out-of-state to gain an insight into ethical and social issues in North Dakota as the journal is published online.
