The Public Philosophy Journal (PPJ) is an open forum for the curation and creation of accessible scholarship that deepens our understanding of, deliberation about, and action concerning issues of public relevance. In contrast to other scholarly journals, the PPJ has adopted an innovative Formative Peer Review process designed to enable colleagues engaged with questions of public concern to create scholarship that is accessible to, relevant for, and shaped by the public. Our model of scholarly publishing attempts to establish partnerships with publicly engaged individuals and organizations to facilitate and coordinate publications that enrich public life. Rather than simply bringing the traditional scholarly journal online and providing public access to its contents, we are attempting to cultivate habits of enriching scholarly development — for people, communities, and ideas — in order to make our shared efforts more effective and to create publics that are more capable of responding in imaginative ways to the great challenges of our time.
