A Wiki on Philosophy Journals

Inspired by the Philosophy
Job Market Wiki
, I decided to start a wiki that will allow authors, editors,
and referees to share information on philosophy journals: their editorial
practices, response times, backlogs on publishing, policies on providing
comments to authors, etc. There is, I think, a great need for such information,
as in many cases the information provided by the journals themselves on their
own web sites is often outdated or incomplete. A wiki, by the way, is a web
site that allows visitors to easily add, remove, and otherwise edit its
content. So I invite you to share whatever knowledge you have of the editorial
policies and practices of philosophy journals by adding what you know to the
Philosophy Journals Information wiki at http://wikihost.org/wikis/philjinfo/.
If you have information to add, please go this site, read the instructions,
click on the appropriate partial edit icons (they look like tiny pages at the
end of every heading), and then add what you know. And please spread the word
about the wiki. Thanks, Doug.

  5. Thanks Doug, I thought so, but I thought it better to ask rather than jump first…
