I read with interest your post and the comments on which philosophy journals are and are not responsible about dealing with submissions.
I am still rather early in my Ph.D. program, and the question of submission for publication is a new and daunting thought for me. I wonder if you or some of your readers might be interested in giving some rather basic advice on publication to me and others in situations similar to mine. I really don't even know where to begin thinking about submitting a paper for publication. How does one know when a paper is good enough to be worth a shot? What journal should it be submitted to? What rules govern submission? I gather from the comments to your thread that it is only permissible to send a paper to a single journal at a time.
Really, I think that I -- and likely other people similar to me -- could just benefit from some general advice about the publication process. I'm not even sure which questions I need to be asking.
Good questions, that deserve an answer. I've opened comments, and invite the many, many readers qualified to offer guidance on these topics to do so. I'm a bit under the gun at the moment, but I may weigh in too in due course.
