A new journal, “Precollege Philosophy and Public Practice,” will have its inaugural issue in winter 2019. It will be an annual, interdisciplinary, online and open-access journal.
Nicknamed “P4,” the journal will publish “philosophical and/or empirical research on precollege philosophy and its impact and interaction with related areas such as public philosophy, dialogue-based education, ethics education, and human development.”
The journal’s editor is Michael Burroughs, assistant professor of philosophy at California State University, Bakersfield and director of its Kegley Institute of Ethics. Wendy Turgeon, professor of philosophy and interim executive dean at St. Joseph’s College, is the journal’s associate editor. [Note: this paragraph has been edited to correct an error regarding the journal’s editorship.]
The journal, to be published by Philosophy Documentation Center, is open-access owing to its sponsorship by the Philosophy Learning and Teaching Organization (PLATO), the Kegley Institute of Ethics, and the Squire Family Foundation.
