Call for Volunteer Editor of Royce on PhilPapers

In an effort to improve the visibility of Royce-related scholarship, the JRS is calling for a volunteer editor for the Josiah Royce page of PhilPapers. While this is an uncompensated position, it would contribute greatly to the Society and the profession as a whole through providing a free and unified Royce bibliography.

The summary of editorial responsibility and the application process is available here: http://philpapers.org/browse/josiah-royce/application.html
