Reliability: Call for Expressions of Interest

Posted on

We are in the process of preparing a special issue (SI) on the notion of reliability.
In order to get things off the ground, we need a list of authors who are interested in the topic and express a non(!)-binding interest in submitting a manuscript. And if possible: title and abstracts too; which may be changed at a later date.
We intend to submit the proposal to — and subsequently guest-edit for — Synthese.

We want to call for contributions which address the following topics [broadly construed]
– reliability, its uses and models in the sciences and methodologies (e.g., empirical, theoretical, social)
– reliability, its uses and models in the philosophy of these sciences to include, among other approaches, formal epistemology
– traditional main-stream approaches to reliability
– reliability and the replication crisis
– reliable inference.

Submissions will be due some time in autumn/winter this year.

To express an interest, please send an email to a project member — which ideally includes a title and (fragments of) an abstract.
