Thank you Marcus for publishing this. Although I am not able (or willing) to understand the mathematic tools you used, I agree with some of your analyses and conclusions. The current journal-solicited approach to peer-review in philosophy is quite problematic. As you have said,"paper quality is judged by a small number of evaluators".

In fact, a paper is judged by only 1 to 3 persons, who might be your theoretical opponents. I've often received reports which are less than 200 words and do not argue for their obviously wrong claims. The editors and reviewers just disagree with my papers, dare not to argue against them, but proudly misuse their little power to disparage them. I work in moral/political philosophy.

Congrats again on the paper, Marcus. I would be happy to collaborate if you ever wanted to implement your crowd-sourced peer-review model through https://freelosophy.github.io/ !
