The International Journal of Art, Culture, Design and Technology (https://www.igi-global.com/journal/international-journal-art-culture-design/41032) invites applications for Philosophy of Science journal-article peer reviewers.
We are a growing journal, currently expanding our scope - and thus our Editorial Review pool - to include Philosophy experts (including the Philosophy of Science), as double-blind anonymous peer reviewers. We also offer reviewing experience and guidance (to those that want it) to emerging scholars, for whom this would be an appropriate level of experience.
If of interest, please submit an online application via: https://www.igi-global.com/journals/become-a-reviewer/ . (The publisher will be adding more Research Field checkboxes to the site, so please check any that are relevant to you, and the editor will get to know your work better through the Statement and CV you submit.)
(Of course - as always - Philosophy of Science scholars are also very welcome to submit articles to the journal at any time:

This research group will have 12 funded participants each to receive $5000 USD and will consist of a total of nine monthly meetings tentatively scheduled to begin May 2022. Focus will be on discussion of a couple of target articles per meeting. On two or three occasions a guest speaker will be attending. The mission of this virtual research group is to catalyze new philosophical interest in foundational problems of cultural evolutionary science by provisioning a small group of excellent philosophers of science, together representing a variety of targeted areas of expertise, with the incentive and the cooperative context to enter this exciting area with ample background information, knowledge of major issues, and a network to aid ongoing collaboration.
The deadline for submitting an abstract (700 words max) is 1 Nov 2022, while full papers (5-7k words) must be submitted by 1 March 2022
Call for Papers:
Special Issue: Submissions are invited for a guest-edited special issue on scientific explanation. Of particular interest are submissions on (i) the nature of explanation, with special attention to foundational debates between the ontic (‘OC’) and epistemic (‘EC’) conceptions, and on (ii) the norms of scientific explanation, with special attention to so-called ‘ontic’ and ‘epistemic’ norms (intelligibility, accuracy, idealization, completeness, fecundity, etc.). Relevant topics include, but are not limited to: The Nature and Norms of Scientific Explanation Philosophical Problems in Science
· Developments or critiques of OC or EC
· Explanatory metatheory
· Explanatory vehicles
· Fact causation and explanation
· Idealization, abstraction, or model-based fictions in explanations
· Non-causal or mathematical explanation
· Metaphysics of systems explanation
· Evaluating explanatory goodness in science
· Norms and aims of scientific explanations
The special issue will offer philosophers of science an opportunity to evaluate these two conceptions and to survey whether any consensus has been achieved on foundational debates, aiming to help settle what it can
