New Resource: PhilPapers

The Georgia State University Library now provides access to the PhilPapers database. PhilPapers is an interactive online bibliographic index of current scholarly research for students and professional philosophers. The resource has both links to external copies of papers and local copies (normally pre-prints) of papers uploaded by the authors. It is both an index and an archive. The site was created in 2008 by David Bourget, currently at the University of Western Ontario, and David Chalmers of the Australian National University. Bourget and Chalmers serve as general editors of the project with the assistance of an advisory board and a number of subject area editors who help categorize and maintain the indexed citations.

Sponsors of the site include the the Rotman Institute of Philosophy at the University of Western Ontario, the American Philosophical Association, the Institute of Philosophy of the School of Advanced Studies at the University of London, the Centre for Consciousness of the Research School of Social Sciences at the Australian National University, and the Joint Information Systems Committee, which supports higher education and research in the United Kingdom by providing leadership in the use of information and communications technology.
