The Expanding Circle (Of Referees)

Thanks for this post!

We’ve heard from both Helen and Josh Shepherd that referees are hard to come by. Ben Bradley’s comment about Ergo (https://dailynous.com/2022/02/18/is-peer-review-in-philosophy-broken-beyond-reasonable-repair/#comment-430821) suggests something else entirely. I wonder if it would be possible to solicit info from other journals. Would be great to have a better sense of just how big this problem really is…


I routinely use PhilPeople to find people to invite for book reviews for Metascience, the journal I edit. I do not know who is working on all the topics covered of the books for which we commission reviews. But I can find in a few minutes names of people who have published recently on most philosophical topics.
