About Questions

questions 12 cover

Volume 12

Questions: Philosophy for Young People, the official journal of PLATO (the Philosophy Learning and Teaching Organization), is a peer-reviewed academic journal.  Questions is unique because it publishes the work of K-12 students interested in philosophical issues, including stories, essays, poems, photographs, and drawings. The journal also publishes articles by scholars and teachers, including lesson plans (which can contain descriptions/transcriptions of student responses), redefined or modified classic thought experiments, transcripts of philosophy discussions, book reviews, and more.

Due to the pandemic, our 2020 issue, usually out in September, has been delayed to early 2021 but we hope it will be available by mid-February.

If you are interested in submitting work to Questions, please review our Submission Guidelines.  The deadline for submissions to Issue #21 is April 30, 2021.
