I am going to guess that the Journal of Modern Philosophy will be quite well respected once it gets going given the people involved. I also expect they'll have a pretty good review process. The History of Philosophy Quarterly was well run when Aaron Garrett was in charge. (Not at all implying it's not now! It is. But just pointing out he did a great job there.)



There's a new open access metaphysics journal called 'Metaphysics'. Right now they are only taking invited submissions and submissions that got accepted to their conferences, but that might change. (And you can submit to their conferences.):


For epistemology, Logos & Episteme is worth thinking about, especially if you want to publish a reply to a paper published in another journal. I don't know how "prestigious" it is (or how you measure prestige!), but plenty of people I've heard of publish in it, which is always a good sign:



On the continental side, I believe PhaenEx is both open-access and well-regarded (though I may be wrong!).

Should we also count the SEP?

F. Contesi

Essays in Philosophy.

Laval Hunsucker

OK, with some delay, but unavoidably so:

Here's another one, just launched a week or so ago, I believe ("1er numéro paru en septembre 2018"):

_Pragmata: Revue d'études pragmatistes_.

Here's its homepage:

and here's the table of contents of the initial issue:

I'm not sure, but it may be the case that it only accepts submissions in the French language; at any rate, it is the organ of, and is meant to advance the mission of, the Association francophone d’études pragmatistes, "... qui s’est donné pour but de promouvoir la recherche sur le pragmatisme, l’étude de sa diffusion, la connaissance de son histoire, l’exploration de ses usages. Pragmata encourage le développement de connexions entre le pragmatisme et la philosophie de la connaissance, la théorie morale et politique, mais aussi les sciences formelles, sciences de la nature, sciences du langage, sciences cognitives, sciences humaines et sciences sociales."

And that makes it, prima facie, look -- at least to me -- like an open-access undertaking particularly worth keeping an eye on.
And "respectable"? --- Well, anyway here are the persons scientifically responsible for it:

Phenomenological Reviews is a new journal exclusively dedicated to the publication of book reviews related to phenomenology and the phenomenological movement (both understood very broadly as extending to disciplines across the humanities and beyond).
