"The Steering Committee of the European Society for Philosophy of Science (EPSA) are pleased to announce that a new journal with the title "European Journal for Philosophy of Science" (EJPS) has been established. EJPS is the official journal of EPSA and is published by Springer. The Editor-in-Chief is Carl Hoefer (Autonomous University of Barcelona, Spain) and the deputy editor is Mauro Dorato (University of Rome III, Italy). Franz Huber (Konstanz, Germany) Edouard Machery (Pittsburgh, USA), Michela Massimi (London, UK), Samir Okasha (Bristol, UK) and Jesús Zamora (UNED, Spain) are Associate Editors. The first issue of EJPS is due to appear in January 2011. Members of EPSA will get the journal as part of the membership to
EPSA (current rate 40 Euros per year)."
This is splendid news, and I congratulate EPSA. (I have some knowledge of HOPOS' efforts to start a journal [news about that shortly], so I applaud the efforts by Stathis and EPSA.) It's great that they manage to keep the price down (a real concern with Springer journals). Let's wish they can create high standards and obtain a high ESF ranking.
But Stathis, shouldn't you have announced this first here?
Now for the sociological observation: Hoefer and Dorato both have a US PhD and have some HPS sensibilities. Not what I would have predicted (but no surprise about that).
