The British Journal for the Philosophy of Science receives over 500 submissions a year. In making their decisions, the Co-Editors-in-Chief seek advice from a team of Associate Editors and a large number of expert referees.
The journal has a policy of seeking to reach a decision on all submissions within six weeks of receipt. This is partly to encourage early career authors in particular to submit articles, but also to avoid unnecessary and disruptive delays. The journal also practices a triple-masking system, whereby neither referees nor editors know the identity of the author (and vice versa).
