Inquiry: Critical Thinking Across the Disciplines


Inquiry is now edited by a team at Sam Houston State University. More information regarding submissions is available on the university's website here -

The journal invites submission of articles, responses, reviews of the literature, notices, letters, and book reviews for consideration for publication. The goal is to encourage an exchange of ideas about effective pedagogy in critical thinking instruction, about methods of assessing critical thinking skills and dispositions, about systematic errors in our thinking, about enhancing the quality of information on which we base decisions and inferences, about common fallacies in argumentation, and about all other topics that are relevant to critical thinking across the disciplines.

Given the diverse nature of the field and of our readership, we ask that authors present early in the manuscript the manner in which “critical thinking” is to be understood. Each submission should have on a separate page the author’s name and complete contact information, including disciplinary specialty and institutional affiliation. Each manuscript should be submitted in Microsoft Word or as a pdf file as an email attachment. Send submissions to:

Frank Fair, Managing Editor
Department of Psychology and Philosophy
Sam Houston State University
