Do undergraduate journal publications help?

Postby gandalf » Sat Sep 24, 2011 4:23 pm

Do adcomms look favorably on articles published in undergraduate journals? I'm thinking of undergraduate philosophy journals. E.g., BYU's Aporia, Denison's Episteme, Yale's Philosophy Review, Stanford's Dualist, etc.

And if I have an article in the works, should I just list that on my resume as an unpublished work? Or what?

It's a soft factor. Unlikely to be a game-changer, but might as well put it on the ol' resume.

Absolutely not. Undergrad journals are already a joke, they definitely don't warrant anticipatory listing.

They helped a lot with OCI, FYI.
