John Wilkins shares his experience:
Generally my papers cause a mild reaction – like a dose of poison ivy. But i just had a paper published in Zootaxa, a mild mannered systematics journal, and as well as a two week turnaround, unheard of in philosophy (my last big paper took a year and a half), within hours I had over a dozen requests for a copy, and an author who I greatly admire offer to write a reply!
Why can’t the humanities work like this?
(And congratulations to the good Dr. Wilkins! Way to represent!)
