Given events currently unfolding in Japan, we at Ethics, Policy & Environment have decided to devote a special section of our Fall issue to ethical questions associated with nuclear power. For this special section we are now soliciting 2,000-4,000 word “Commentary” articles on questions related in some important way to the question of nuclear power. Such questions could relate to risks, benefits, harms, costs, uncertainties, responsibilities, future generations, natural impacts, energy needs, alternative energies, wedge technologies, etc. The sky’s the limit, basically. We ask, however, that you try to steer your commentary toward complicated ethical or philosophical dimensions of the nuclear challenge and avoid straight polemics.
To ensure quality and balance, we will conduct a preliminary vetting phase. Short proposals of 500 words are invited by April 20, 2011. Shortly thereafter, we will review your proposals and get back to you with an editorial decision. Ideally we will have all complete 2,000-4,000 word submissions before June 15, 2011. Please submit your proposal to our managing editor, Chris Outlaw, at email@example.com and to our editorial assistant, Sarah Erskine, at firstname.lastname@example.org, designating in your e-mail that you wish to contribute a commentary piece to issue 14(3).
