The JESP: Peer-reviewed, and entirely online 

The University of Southern California has launched the Journal of Ethics & Social Philosophy, "an online peer-reviewed journal of moral, political and legal philosophy." SoCal Law and Philosophy Professor Andrei Marmor is editor-in-chief.

The TigerHawk inside skinny is that JESP is the first peer-reviewed philosophy journal existing entirely online. The first issue contains such heavy but blog-worthy articles as "'The Government Beguiled Me': The Entrapment Defense and the Problem of Private Entrapment,"(pdf) by Gideon Yaffe.

The editorial policy is here. Note bene: "Footnotes should be kept to the necessary minimum." In the TigerHawk experience, this will demoralize certain law professors.
