APA/BPA journal surveys
The APA and the British Philosophical Association (BPA) have collaborated in surveying philosophy journals; 79 journals were selected to participate, and 43 submitted responses. The survey, which was conducted at the end of 2014, requested data about the journals’ submission rates, acceptance rates, and review process over the previous three years (2011, 2012, and 2013). The survey also asked questions about the percentages of papers submitted and accepted that were written by women and members of minority ethnic groups. The responses were provided by journal editors, and in those cases where journals do not record this kind of information, editors received data from their publishers to enable them to give responses.
