The acceptance rate for each peer-reviewed issue of the Journal will be posted at http://www.adrianpiper.com/berlinjphil/index.shtml . Each issue of The Berlin Journal of Philosophy will be publicly advertised.Call for Referees: At this time, there appears to be no extant philosophy journal that adheres to simultaneous policies of blind submissions, double-blind review, and anti-plagiarism. The Berlin Journal of Philosophy therefore innovates in adhering strictly to all three. The Journal seeks qualified, experienced, professionally trained philosophers to follow and apply these policies, as anonymous blind referees, in each of the above-listed areas of specialization. A more complete list of desired subspecialties is available at  http://www.adrianpiper.com/berlinjphil/editorial.shtml . Each submission is screened by a first referee, and, if accepted, screened by a second. Referees’ identities are held in strictest confidence. The Journal offers referees an honorarium of €25,00/refereed paper, contingent on a contractual commitment to the anti-plagiarism policy at http://www.adrianpiper.com/berlinjphil/anti_plagiarism.shtml. The Journal’sAnonymous Referee Contract is available at http://www.adrianpiper.com/berlinjphil/docs/AnonRefContr.pdf. Interested applicants should e-mail berlinjphil@adrianpiper.com, attaching a scan of a published article and CV listing education, professional experience, list of publications, area(s) of specialization, and institutional affiliation if any.Submission Guidelines: NO SUBMISSIONS CAN BE CONSIDERED AT THIS TIME. A Call for Papers will be circulated once an adequate number and distribution of referees are in place.
