Philica features transparent peer-review
Philica is an online, open-access journal accepting manuscripts in any discipline.

Submitted papers span the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences, with greater numbers of articles in astronomy, physics, biology and chemistry. Music, philosophy, political studies, anthropology, and history are just some of the other disciplines represented, so it is truly multidisciplinary.
