As part of our ongoing effort to increase the presence of libertarian scholarship in the academic community, we are pleased to announce that Libertarian Papers has been added to two new research databases. The journal is now listed in The International Directory of Philosophy, and also has a new entry in the comprehensive journal database JournalSeek.

The Capital Free Press has compiled a list of the top ranked “libertarian websites based on the number of unique visitors in the most recent month according to the data compiled by Compete.” The post is pasted below. Not surprisingly, LewRockwell.com is the most visited libertarian site. Four of my own sites made the list: StephanKinsella.com (#84), Libertarian Papers (#100), The Libertarian Standard (#75), and Center for the Study of Innovative Freedom (C4SIF, #78).
Automating everything means that adding a new website is as simple as plugging a new url into my list, so you have any suggestions for a website to add, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to the restrictions on the free use of the Compete API, there is a chance that I could run out of API calls in a 24 hour period (resets at midnight EST). The way that I compile this list and the terms and conditions on the use of their API prevent me from displaying the number of unique visitors for each website in the chart, though that information and more can be accessed via the link I have provided.

The O.P. Alford III Prize in Libertarian Scholarship is awarded annually by the Ludwig von Mises Institute. This year’s recipients are Thorsten Polleit and Jonathan Mariano, for their 2011 Libertarian Papers article, “Credit Default Swaps from the Viewpoint of Libertarian Property Rights and Contract Theory.” Congratulations to the authors!

There have been some recent alterations to the Libertarian Papers website which may be of interest to readers and authors. Below are listed some of the most significant changes:
1) Although articles will continue to be published as soon as they complete the peer-review process, issue numbers and continuous page references are being added for each new volume, starting with volume 4. Consequently, the citation style for volumes 4 onward conforms to standard journal format. Information on old and new citations is available on the web pages of the different volumes, as well as those of individual articles.
2) The guidelines for manuscript submission have been updated and clarified.
3) The “About” page has been revised to include an “Aims and Scope” section.
