The American Philosophical Association (APA) recently awarded an article published in Michigan Publishing‘s highly regarded, open access journal of philosophy, Philosopher’s Imprint, the Routledge, Taylor & Francis Prize.
The prize of $1000 goes to Benjamin Lennertz from Colgate University for his article, “Quantificational Credences,” published in March 2015 (Vol. 15, No. 9) in Philosophers’ Imprint. The Routledge, Taylor & Francis Prize, which was created in 2013 and is funded by Routledge (part of the Taylor & Francis publishing group), is given annually to the best two articles in philosophy written by an adjunct professor.
Philosophers’ Imprint, a journal partner with Michigan Publishing since 2007, promotes open access scholarship, stating on its website that it is: “Edited by philosophers. Published by librarians. Free to readers of the Web.”
APA’s recognition of Philosophers’ Imprint high-quality scholarship is a great example of open access, digital-only scholarship competing alongside more traditional peer/competitor journals. Moreover, the online social tracking tool Altmetric, which Michigan Publishing implements on various publication partner websites, makes it easy for scholars, editors, publishers, and readers to monitor digital engagement and global sharing.
