Ethics in Film seeks articles that use video excerpts to teach ethics. Ideally, the video segment should be brief enough for classroom presentation, although the journal also happily considers articles on entire films. Clips may be drawn from feature films, television, or any other source. However, each clip must be widely available for purchase or rental so that professors can actually obtain it for classroom use.
All submissions receive a double-blind review by two reviewers. Reviewers are generally university professors actively engaged in the teaching of ethics. All articles appear in a standard format using the EIF Article Template below. This requirement aims to speed review, reduce editorial cost, and make the classroom use of articles from Ethics in Film as easy as possible.
References should conform to the style of the American Psychological Association. The journal uses no footnotes. Articles are published on this Ethics in Film web site in Adobe Acrobat PDF format (please click the Articles link above).
