New JFP

The new JFP publishes on Friday, just in time for the end of the Central meetings.

25 jobs at most.

That's my prediction.

I suspect no more than 15 jobs.

I wonder how few jobs there must be in order to get the APA to (again) decline to publish a JFP issue? I've been proceeding on the assumption that an issue will indeed be published. My guess is that if they had fewer than 20-25 jobs, they'd (again) just go with the web ads.

Okay, so leaving aside the possible world at which provosts and deans all around this world suddenly receive an astronomical amount of money from an anonymous donor, call her/him "Socrates 2.0," that has designated the funds to be used to hire TT faculty in philosophy, because "the examined life seriously rocks, and you know it does," as the donor so aptly puts it, and thus 570 jobs are funded in an instant, half of which are paired with substantial additional funding for research into teaching philosophy, such that the discipline itself will benefit from supported investigation into best practices, putting this aside, I predict there may be 10 TT and enough post-docs and VAPs to have a print edition. I hope I'm wrong and there are much more.

There will be 20-25 jobs and post-docs, but most of them will be repeats from the web-only section currently up. That's my prediction.

I suspect you are correct...

It's up. There are 70 by the numbers (including web-only), but with numerous repeats both from the old web-only into the new JFP and from the new JFP into the new web-only, as well as numerous asterisks. If memory serves, perhaps slightly better than last year? Someone should do an exact count. I'm going to do some shots and worry about it in the morning.
