A quick alert to those who haven’t already seen it over at Fake Barn Country (or elsewhere): there’s a new ethics journal, the Journal of Ethics and Social Philosophy. The first issue contains articles by Joseph Raz, Gideon Jaffe, and John Brunero.
Here’s the first paragraph of their editorial policy:
The Journal of Ethics & Social Philosophy is a peer-reviewed online journal in moral, political and legal philosophy. The journal welcomes submissions of articles in any of these and related fields of research. Articles submitted to the Journal of Ethics & Social Philosophy will be reviewed by the editors and external referees according to the highest academic standards. The journal is committed to speedy and efficient review, normally not exceeding 6 to 8 weeks from submission.
It’s nice to see growth in online journals in philosophy. Another noteworthy item about JESP is that they accept simultaneous submissions. (Of course, to take advantage of that, the other journal(s) to which one is submitting must accept simultaneous submissions, too.) It will be interesting to see if this catches on.
