Guest Editors: Stefano Bonzio (UnivPM Ancona), Jürgen Landes (LMU Munich) and Barbara Osimani (UnivPM Ancona)


Current political, social and even scientific debates all hinge upon whether data, inferences and/or belief forming processes are reliable (the replication crisis and fake news are just tips of the iceberg). We are calling for philosophical/methodological contributions which help us through these difficult circumstances.

Given the variety of intertwined problems we are calling for contributions addressing the notion of reliability [broadly construed]. In particular, we are calling for contributions to


- reliability, its uses and models in the sciences and methodologies (e.g., empirical, theoretical, social);

- reliability in the philosophy of the sciences, including, among other approaches, formal epistemology;

- traditional main-stream approaches to reliability;

- reliability and the replication crisis and

- reliable inference.
