Skeptopathy Magazine is looking for articles on pathological skepticism. If you have an article you would like published please send it to:
editor [at] skeptopathy.com
Currently Skeptopathy Magazine cannot provide monetary compensation to writers as speaking truth to power seldom pays very well.
Submissions should be fact-based commentary or analysis on the subject of pathological skepticism. Exposés of pathological skepticism in mainstream “skeptic” magazines (Skeptic Magazine, eSkeptic, Junior Skeptic, The Skeptic and Skeptical Inquirer) are particularly encouraged.
Submissions should be in Word format (.doc or .docx). All articles should be written in a scholarly format and uncommon facts should be referenced in a footnotes section. The automatic footnotes/endnotes feature in Word is very useful in this respect.
Here’s an example of proper citation:
I am inclined to look at everything as resulting from designed laws, with the details, whether good or bad, left to the working out of what we may call chance.
For example, in 1847 Ignaz Semmelweis was ridiculed to the point of asylum committal for daring to suggest that doctors should wash their hands after handling cadavers to prevent infection in their patients.
