Here I have several resources that I provide for the philosophical community. I hope you’ll find some of them useful. Enjoy!
I started a website called Sympoze It started out as a social-bookmarking site for philosophers. It was a simple, effective way for philosophers to collectively find/share/rate online philosophy content. A lot of philosophers pointed out that this might be even better if it were turned into something to improve the peer-review process, and so that’s what I’m doing with it now. I hope to re-launch it soon, but for now you can learn more about it and volunteer to be a referee at sympoze.com (Yes, the spelling of “Sympoze” is intentional – so we can be cool like Digg and Reddit).
I started a video/podcast lecture series designed to promote/showcase recent Ph.Ds. in philosophy. You can check out the website here.
I recently put together a journal surveyservice to help address some issues that philosophers had with the original philosophy journal wiki. All information concerning this project is located on my journal survey page. The primary purpose of this service is to help philosophers gather useful information about the journals in our field by submitting a very brief survey each time they receive a verdict on a paper submission. Overtime we should have useful information about review times, acceptance rates, quality of referee feedback and much more. I’ve averaged about 5-10 surveys each day since I started the survey, so the data is already (I think) starting to be a bit useful.
Why Major in Philosophy? (Handouts)
Over the past few years, I created and polished some handouts to give to my students in who ask about majoring in philosophy. I also use these at majors information day fairs. It didn’t make sense to have this filed away on my computer, so I thought I’d post PDFs of everything on a page. Here’s the page.
Epistemology Journal Mashup
I created a mashup that screens some of the top philosophy journals for epistemology keywords. The most recent outputs are listed below.
Metaphysics Journal Mashup
I created a mashup that screens some of the top philosophy journals for common metaphysics keywords. The most recent outputs are listed below. Unfortunately, keywords in metaphysics tend to bring up more non-metaphysics papers than I would like.
