J-APA Editorship Opportunities
Monday, July 22, 2013
Last month I had the privilege of announcing the APA’s plans to establish a new journal, the Journal of the American Philosophical Association (J-APA). This journal will be published in cooperation with Cambridge University Press. I noted that the APA has established a distinguished committee to guide us in our plans for this journal and to search for inaugural editors and associate editors. This committee consists of Julia Annas, University of Arizona; Robert Audi (chair), University of Notre Dame; David Rasmussen, Boston College; T. M. Scanlon, Harvard University; Sally Scholz, Villanova University; Ernest Sosa, Rutgers University; and Alison Wylie, University of Washington. I am very pleased to say that this committee is now in full search mode.
This is an extraordinary opportunity for outstanding philosophers to make a major, highly beneficial impact on our discipline. So let me encourage you to nominate strong candidates for editor (or joint editor) and/or associate editor—where this might well include self-nomination. Information about the fairly simple nomination/application process is available via Interfolio.
Let me also say that if you have a possible interest in such a position but are not yet prepared to develop a detailed conception of operating policies and procedures, you should feel free to approach this committee for a preliminary discussion. One way to do that would be to contact the committee chair, Robert Audi, at [email protected]. You should also feel free to submit a very brief application via Interfolio, one that can be filled in with further details later if appropriate.
This is an exciting moment for the APA and for philosophy generally. I very much look forward to the launching of our new journal under the leadership of editors of distinction, insight, and vision.
All the best,
Chair, APA Board of Officers
