I’m thinking of dropping the ‘Subscription Publications’ section of the papers blog for the following four reasons. First, many readers can’t access subscription publications, and it might be simpler to stick to open access publications. Second, other services, like Philosophers Index already index these. Third, it is much messier to track journals than personal homepages, because many webpages announcing journal publications (especially at Kluwer) are designed to be hard to ‘deep-link’ to. So the accuracy and comphrensiveness of that section is very poor. Fourth, it is by far the slowest and most tedious part of the daily entry to compile. If, however, people find that section particularly valuable I’ll leave it in.
