I. Editorial Orientation
Full Context is an "international Objectivist publication." By "Objectivist," we mean "for Objectivists." We leave it entirely up our readers' intelligence and independent judgment to determine whether any of the ideas presented in Full Context represent statements of or applications of Objectivist principles, or more importantly, whether the ideas presented are true. (It should go without saying that submissions which, in the editor's opinion, contain obvious misunderstandings or misrepresentations of Objectivist ideas have not and will not appear in the pages of Full Context). Full Context is an open forum for the discussion of ideas influenced by Objectivism. As such, all that the editors demand is that submissions be well-reasoned, thought-provoking, original, literate, informed, and of interest to an Objectivist or libertarian reader.
Please contact the editors at firstname.lastname@example.org concerning any issues not addressed below.
II. Submission Requirements
1) Contact Information. All submissions (including letters to the editor) should include the author's name, full address and telephone number(s). (If available, an email address should also be included.)
2) Content. Submissions should manifest a sound basic knowledge of the philosophy of Objectivism. Contrary to some other well-known Objectivist publications, we do not demand full agreement with Objectivism as a condition for publication. We encourage freethinking and intellectual independence. (Authors who express either explicit or implicit disagreement with one or more well-established Objectivist positions or with leading Objectivist thinkers will not be blacklisted, nor will their subscriptions be cancelled, nor will nasty rumours be circulated about their character.) Writers can expect, however, that controversial submissions will generate equally pointed feedback, which Full Context will publish in its "Letters" section.
