  • Aporia

    Aporia is an established undergraduate Philosophy journal that has been published by the University of St Andrews Philosophy Society since 2007. We publish top-quality work in analytic philosophy written by undergraduates from across the world. 

    "Aporia" stands for philosophical puzzlement, and Plato's dialogues are called "aporetic" since they often end with the interlocutor finding himself confused about the meaning of a concept that he had previously thought he knew, like virtue or courage.

  • Bible and the Contemporary World

    The journal is the official publication of the M.Litt. “Bible and the Contemporary World” programme at the University of St Andrews. As such, the journal addresses a number of themes that reflect important aspects of our contemporary world and about which various Christian traditions have something to say, as well as how social, political or cultural issues shape the way that Christians interpret their own tradition.

    This Journal publishes short articles by you and will be reviewed by our team of Undergraduate reviewers. This Journal gives you the opportunity to practice writing for the public domain, to flesh out ideas and opinions and have them challenged by a peer, something as Undergraduates we don’t usually get to do.

  • St Andrews Law Journal

    The St Andrews Law Journal is a student led publication, our work comprising a variety of investigations into historic and contemporary matters within law and legal culture. We operate an editorial double-blind peer-review, and our published by the Institute of Legal and Constitutional Research, University of St Andrews. The Law Journal asks contributors to write an investigation of something they are genuinely interested in exploring, whether it be of academic or more casual focus, and placing that topic within a legal context: what are the laws governing the issue?; how has the evolution - or degradation - of this interest impacted the wider world, or demographics, specifically? Our editors are here to help guide contributors on elaborating on the pressing and passive legal considerations, doing so - we hope - will make law a more interesting and accessible subject for both our writers and readers.
