CfP special issue of Synthese on "Reliability"

Deadline: Sunday 11 November 2018

Current political, social and even scientific debates all hinge upon whether data, inferences and/or belief forming processes are reliable (the replication crisis and fake news are just tips of the iceberg). We are calling for philosophical/methodological contributions which help us through these difficult circumstances.

Given the variety of intertwined problems we are calling for contributions addressing the notion of reliability [broadly construed]. In particular, we are calling for contributions to

  • reliability, its uses and models in the sciences and methodologies (e.g., empirical, theoretical, social);
  • reliability in the philosophy of the sciences, including, among other approaches, formal epistemology;
  • traditional main-stream approaches to reliability;
  • reliability and the replication crisis and
  • reliable inference.

For further information, please contact the guest editors at , or . The deadline for submissions is 11.11.2018. Please, submit your contributions via Synthese's editorial manager. Make sure to select this SI when selecting an article type. Submissions should be prepared like any other submission to Synthese prepared to under-go double-blind peer-review.
