Submission Info

Ethics & the Environment publishes papers on all topics encompassed by the broad term environmental ethics. Double-spaced manuscripts may be submitted at any time, and preference will be given to those of 35 pages or less, including an abstract of fewer than 150 words. Ethics & the Environment uses the Chicago Manual of Style's author/date system of citing references (see a published issue for specific examples). Notes should be on a separate sheet at the end of the manuscript. Authors should submit two copies of a manuscript, one completely blinded and one including all author contact information as well as an author bio of approximately 75 words. The submission process is entirely electronic and all correspondence should be sent to the managing editor at

All submissions, except those clearly outside the scope of the journal, will be reviewed by outside readers. There are three categories of response: accept with no or minor revisions, revise and resubmit, and reject.
