New Philosophy Journal Survey Project


The Blog of the APA is launching a new project to collect and share data on the experiences philosophers have had with academic journals, including information about each journal’s “average review time, time to publication, acceptance rates, comments per submission” and related qualities.

The project is an elaboration of the earlier journal survey work of Andrew Cullison (DePauw), and includes the data he collected through his site.

182 journals are listed in the survey, though there is not yet data for all of them.

You can read more about the project here, see the current data here, and enter information about your own experiences with specific journals here.

This is great! Those who submit their data should be careful to submit all of their negative results along with their positive results. Otherwise we’ll end up with some very skewed data, especially on acceptance rates! Report

Is this saliently different from the Cullison project? It’s good that it includes the CUllision data, but I’m not sure I see an obvious reason to start also collecting this data in another place as well.Report

Cullison isn’t able to maintain this project any longer. So he’s transferring his info to the APA blog and letting them gather new info going forward. Report

Something is wrong for the entry for Theoria; the average review time cannot be “20,075.82” months.Report

Whoa. Airtable is awesome! Why have I not seen this before? Clean user interface, excellent import/export options, KISS approach to UI, NOT Google, and very accessible pricing tiers. I can’t believe my eyes.Report
