I write as the editor of the European Journal of Philosophy, with a favour to ask. For the last several years, we have been suffering from a substantial backlog, as many of our authors and readers know. Fortunately, we have just been given a 50% increase in our page budget by Wiley-Blackwell. So now, rather than having to wait until 2020 for one's accepted article to appear in print, we'll be back in a healthy state by early 2016, with no more than a couple volumes of material waiting to go to print in "early view".
We would really like the community of philosophers to know about the page budget increase, esp. as we know that a number of philosophers have recently been put off submitting their work to us due to the backlog. Would it be possible to use your forum to make something like the following announcement? If so, I'd be supremely grateful for your help.
And the official announcement, which is, indeed, welcome news:
The European Journal of Philosophy is growing! In response to an increasing number of high-quality submissions, the journal has added 50% more pages per volume.
