Individuals are eligible for free access to the significant new journal Bamboo and Silk until 31 December 2019, using access token BSMS4U.
Bamboo and Silk is a peer-reviewed academic journal sponsored by the Center of Bamboo and Silk Manuscripts of Wuhan University. Based on unearthed Chinese bamboo and silk manuscripts from the Warring States period (476–221 BC) and Qin (221–206BC), Han (206BC–220 AD), Wei (220–265 AD) and Jin (265–420 AD) Dynasties, this journal focuses on studies of character identification and textual reconstitution, and studies of the social, political, economic and legal systems as well as ideology, culture, language, customs and other aspects reflected by these manuscripts. The journal includes research articles on bamboo and silk manuscripts and book reviews. All articles are peer reviewed by anonymous outside experts as well as by the editorial board, and reflect the current state of international academic research issues on Chinese bamboo and silk manuscripts.

Michael Beaney, editor of the British Journal for the History of Philosophy, recently wrote me to call my attention to his most recent editorial at the journal. Its penultimate paragraph reads, in part:
At the BJHP we will continue to publish the very best articles on the ‘canonical’ figures, but we will also be redoubling our efforts to broaden that canon as much as we can. As we move forward, what we would like to promote, above all, is more work on non-Western philosophy, especially where it seeks to deepen dialogue between the various traditions through critical engagement and fruitful comparison. So here, in particular, we would like to underline that we welcome submissions that discuss non-Western philosophy even if our record to date might suggest otherwise.
This is of course very welcome. For more an earlier discussion of publishing in the history of Chinese philosophy, see here.
I recently became aware of the European Journal of Japanese Philosophy, an annual journal that has published in 2016 and 2017, and is now working on the 2018 issue. Check it out!

Thanks to Keith Knapp’s terrific mailing list (which I too frequently fail to credit for things I post here):
Brill has started publishing a new periodical called Bamboo and Silk that contains articles on unearthed bamboo and silk manuscripts from the pre-Qin and early imperial period. See here.
The journal International Communication of Chinese Culture is worth looking at; its latest issues contain many articles related to Chinese philosophy. Of particular interest to me (in light of my essay on Tian) is Ben Huff’s essay, “Servants of Heaven: the place of virtue in the Confucian cosmos.” I’ll paste the abstract of Ben’s essay after the break.

Dao has established The Annual Best Essay Award since 2007. In addition to a certificate of achievement, the award comes along with a prize of US$1,000. The award winners are noted in the website of this journal as well as the website of Springer, the publisher of this journal. The award ceremony is held each year at the American Philosophical Association Annual Meeting (Eastern Division), where a special panel on the theme of the award winning essay is held.
The selection process consists of two stages. At the beginning of each year, a nominating committee of at least three editorial members, who have not published in Dao in the given year, is established. This committee is charged with the task of nominating three best essays published in the previous year. These three essays are then sent to the whole editorial board for deliberation. The final winner is decided by a vote by all editorial board members who are not authors of the nominated essays.
The editorial board has just finished its deliberation on the best essay published in 2016, and the award is given to:

The newest issue of the on-line journal Comparative Philosophy (7:2) has been published. Articles are available at the journal’s website.
I am not sure what exactly to make of this data, which is based on a ranking system that may make ore sense for the sciences than for the humanities, but here is the latest ranking of philosophy journals, based on rates of citation over the last three years. This certainly is not the only measure of journal quality, but perhaps something worth taking into account.
