This journal editor is really using his Mind!

August 24, 2011 § Leave a comment

Feminist Philosophers recently did a post about a list of “Top Wittgenstein Papers” that was linked from the Mind website (the papers were all by men). Mind‘s Editor, Prof. Tom Baldwin, only learned about the list – which was apparently an OUP marketing scheme – from the blog post. He promptly contacted OUP and asked that the list be removed from the Mind website. He then joined the comments thread on the FP post to both explain the situation and share some information about Mind‘s acceptances rates (slightly higher for women than for men) and the efforts of the Mind Association to promote gender-balanced conferences.

Thanks, Prof. Baldwin!
