Publishing Philosophy

Chat about anything your heart desires here, just be civil. Factual or scientific questions about philosophy go here (e.g. "When was Socrates born?"), and so most homework help questions belong here. Note, posts in the off-topic section will not increase new members post counts. This includes the introductions and feedback sections.

I am looking for information on how/where to send philosophical essays? Journals and such?

Anyone any clue?

This is a very good write-up on the process, and it DOES mention quite a few respected journals by name.

From the American Philosophical Association:

One nice feature is that it includes a list of questionable, possibly predatory, publishers.

I recommend that you find copies of any journal you are considering to see what type of issues they are addressing and quality of papers.

I agree with you, Fooloso4, it is true in every kind of publishing effort to know your ground, because only fertile ground will let you plant your ideas there, and not every publication is fertile for every piece of article. This is true in any genre: news, analysis, fiction, science, philosophy.

Although I recognize the usefulness of reading, inasmuch as it makes you acquire knowledge, I detest reading (and hence, am unsuccessful in publishing) because reading stifles thinking, it represses your brain wave frequency, and it is very, very, very, very boring to do.
