Inquiry: Critical Thinking Across the Disciplines


Inquiry is 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 the author’s name and complete contact informati on a separate page, including disciplinary specialty and institutional affiliation. Each manuscript should be submitted by email in Word format (.doc, .docx) to:

Thomas Brommage, Managing Editor
Department of Psychology and Philosophy
Sam Houston State University
E-mail: [email protected]

Submitted manuscripts must be accompanied by an abstract of 100-150 words on a separate page. Include no more than three key words below the abstract. All manuscript pages, including reference lists and tables, must be double-spaced. All figures must be submitted with their original application file (Excel, Word, etc.). Use of footnotes and endnotes should be limited as much as possible.

Inquiry has previously followed the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association in matters of style. To facilitate faster publication, reference linking, and online prepublication of forthcoming articles, the journal is shifting to The Chicago Manual of Style. We ask for authors' understanding as we work througjh this transition.

By submitting a manuscript to Inquiry the author affirms that the manuscript has not been published and is not under consideration for publication elsewhere. Authors are responsible for obtaining and providing written permission from copyright owners for reprinting previously published illustrations, tables, or lengthy quotes of 500 words or more. Authors are responsible for the accuracy of the material in their manuscripts.
