Journal of Space Philosophy – Board of Editors
Kepler Space Institute (KSI) is honored to have 42 of the world’s Space community professionals as members of the Board of Editors for the Journal of Space Philosophy.
Dr. Elliott Maynard, our Journal of Space Philosophy Board of Editors colleague, has beautifully stated both the purpose and the style for our peer reviews:
This is such a hi-caliber group of leading-edge thinkers and supercharged individuals, it should be natural for each of us to wish to provide a supportive and synergistic environment for the others. I have also learned always to have someone else proof read any material I write, as I have discovered that the brain tends not to “see” my own simple mistakes. Ergo, within the new Kepler context I feel editors should be there to support our writers in the most creative and positive ways possible. (e-mail to Bob Krone, March 23, 2013)
The purposes of peer reviews of article submissions to the Journal of Space Philosophy are: (1) to determine the relevance to the Vision and Goals of KSI; (2) to help the author(s) improve the article in substance and style or recommend references; and (3) to provide publication recommendations to the Editor-in-Chief.
