Electronic archive makes debut

A new electronic archive is in place at Pitt that allows philosophy of science scholars to post their new works on-line for immediate review by colleagues.

The free PhilSci Archive is the first of its kind in the field of philosophy of science. A collaboration by the University Library System (ULS), Pitt's Center for Philosophy of Science and the International Philosophy of Science Association, the new archive means researchers can have new works available for viewing within 24 hours.

The PhilSci Archive accepts preprints — early versions of new works, often in preliminary form. The archive does not referee postings or edit them. Whether or not a posting will affect subsequent attempts to publish material in a journal is a matter for individual journals to decide.

Authors must first establish a PhilSci Archive user account. Users seeking to locate submitted papers can browse by subject, or search for papers by author, title or keyword. Registered users can receive e-mail alerts automatically when submissions in their interest are posted.

The PhilSci Archive is available at:
