I'd like to ask you all for your advice on something. I recent submitted a paper for the "Rawls Fest" conference at Yale. Although the CFP didn't say anything about a proceedings, I've been offered a place in their volume. Here's my question: is it a good or bad (or terrible) idea to accept the offer? I've heard very mixed things about publishing in conference proceedings, particularly from Thom Brooks' well-known paper on publishing advice. Brooks does, however, offer one caveat -- and that's if the proceedings are "somewhat reputable." Anyway, I'm a bit uncertain what to do. On the one hand, it's "just" a conference proceedings. On the other hand, it's through Yale, and Thomas Pogge's Global Justice Program. On the one hand, it's a paper that's very, very important to me -- one that I think makes an important contribution to political philosophy, and which I would very much like to publish somewhere good. On the other hand, I've been strugging to publish the piece for years. Etc. So, yeah, I could really use some advice. Thanks, in advance, to anyone and everyone who has any to offer!
