Ernest Sosa (Rutgers), the longtime editor-in-chief of Philosophy and Phenomenological Research and Noûs (and editor of its supplement, Philosophical Issues), journals published by Wiley, offers a comment in light of what is happening at The Journal of Political Philosophy:
I have long been Editor of Philosophical Issues, and Editor-in-Chief of Nous and PPR. For many years now, Wiley has been the publisher of all three of those journals. And I am pleased to attest that our experience with Wiley’s editorial representatives has been uniformly excellent in every way. In particular, we have never experienced any pressure to adjust our editorial policies and procedures to any business objectives. At all three journals we have always enjoyed complete editorial autonomy. I can speak from firsthand experience only about these three journals, but that is what I can say based on my long experience.
