Author Guidelines

Aims and scope: Justice Everywhere hosts posts on any aspect of ethical life and public policy arising in either the domestic or global domain, considered from any theoretical perspective. Posts are designed to be succinct and accessible to a broad audience. They consider topics presently under debate in current political and social affairs, either ‘hot topics’ or ongoing large-scale questions, and focus on exploring the central moral threads in these issues, seeking to delineate the crucial fault-lines of debate and to outline ideas on the direction policy or action should move.

Format: We operate throughout the academic year, roughly October-July.  A new thread is posted roughly every fortnight within this period, usually on a Sunday or Monday, and will be available for comments throughout the next two weeks.

Style: Each lead-post should offer a short, clear statement on the topic posed in the post and it should provide clear exposition of the ideas and conclusions. Academic literature, policy research, and all other relevant evidence can be referenced, but knowledge cannot be assumed, so points of reference must be explained and supported within posts.

Comments: Anyone is welcome to comment on the blog and we aim at rigorous and entertaining debate. We ask that all comments abide by the ‘charitable reading’ principle in exploring and challenging blog posts, interpreting posts in their most favourable light and being polite in addressing the author and other commenters.

Contributing: We welcome contact from anyone interested in contributing the blog and or in offering a one-off post.
