I don’t usually post announcements that aren’t explicitly about epistemology, but will make an exception for this new open access journal. This is one of the most important developments in our field, and I make it an explicit rule never to turn down refereeing requests from open access journals. And when I have uncommitted papers, I’m going to submit first to such journals. I hope others, many many others, will do the same! (I note that I just signed an agreement with Wiley-Blackwell for my latest paper, and was offered to opportunity to make it open access online. For $3000. Nuff said…)
Ergo, An Open Access Journal of Philosophy
Ergo is a general, open access philosophy journal accepting submissions on all philosophical topics and from all philosophical traditions. This includes, among other things: history of philosophy, work in both the analytic and continental traditions, as well as formal and empirically informed philosophy.
Ergo uses a triple-anonymous peer review process and aims to return decisions within two months on average.
Ergo is published by MPublishing at the University of Michigan and sponsord by the Department of Philosophy at the University of Toronto.
Papers are published as they are accepted; there is no regular publication schedule.
To submit a paper, please register and login to Ergo’s editorial management system at:
Submitted manuscripts should be prepared for anonymous review, containing no identifying information. Submissions need not conform to the journal style unless and until accepted for publication.
Submission and publication is free, but the journal essentially depends on the support of reliable reviewers returning informative reports in a timely manner. We hope that you will consider acting as referee for Ergo if asked by one of its editors. We also hope that you will consider submitting your work to Ergo.
Please share this call for papers with your colleagues!
