Colin Phillips: How to create a top journal by accepting (almost) everything

Colin Phillips has written a really interesting, and well thought out blog post about his experience as an editor of a special topic at Frontiers in Psychology (my most recent article was published in a different special topic (Models of Reference) in Frontiers – Talker-Specific Generalization of Pragmatic Inferences based on Under- and Over-Informative Prenominal Adjective Use). He found that while the model isn’t perfect, that it can be an improvement on the current model for publishing, discussing topics such as impact factor, time-to-publish, selectivity, etc. It’s a great read!
