Special Issue on the notion of “Reliability” with Synthese
Call for Papers
Guest Editors: Stefano Bonzio (UnivPM Ancona), Jürgen Landes (LMU Munich) and Barbara Osimani (UnivPM Ancona)
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.

The deadline for submissions is 11.11.2018. Please, submit your contributions via the editorial manager. Make sure to select this SI when selecting an article type.
