In late 2014, the American Philosophical Association (APA)
and the British Philosophical Association (BPA) jointly conducted a survey of
43 philosophy journals to gather data on their submission and acceptance rates,
review process, and the percentages of papers submitted and accepted that were
written by women and members of minority ethnic groups from 2011 to 2013.
The results of the
survey are now available on both the APA website and the BPA website. The
responses were provided by journal editors, with publishers supplying
additional data in some cases.
We plan to conduct the survey periodically and hope to
include more journals in the future. To request that a journal be added to
future surveys, please contact the APA’s publication coordinator, Erin Shepherd.
The APA and BPA wish to thank everyone who participated in
gathering and sharing this information and hope that it is useful to the
