I've just submitted my paper on David Miller's theory of rights to The Philosophical Quarterly. I choose Phil Quarterly on the advice of my supervisors who both agreed that it would be a good place to send it to, given the stature of the journal and their average response times. Given that this is the first time I've submitted a paper I'm finding the whole process rather intimidating. Still, I think it's the strongest paper I've ever written, and given that it is on a timely topic and is tightly focused so I'm tentatively hopeful. This hope is kept firmly in check however with the knowledge that Phil Quarterly is a very good journal and that I would be extremely lucky to be successful. I'm hoping for a fairly quick response and for some helpful reviewer comments even if (when?) it does get rejected. That way I can modify the paper and try again elsewhere.
