Give PhilPeople a try

It's easy

PhilPeople makes it easy to create and maintain a rich profile by automatically pulling together lists of your publications (from PhilPapers), talks (from PhilEvents), and career events (from PhilJobs). Of course, PhilPeople is also highly customizable.

It works with your website

You can use the PhilPeople widget to embed your PhilPeople publications on your website. This way, you maintain your publications in three important places at once: PhilPeople, PhilPapers, and your website. As a bonus, your papers will have our Recommend button next to them.

It's there for you

The PhilPapers Foundation and the Centre for Digital Philosophy are non-profit organizations with a long history of serving the profession. You can count on us to respect your privacy and make PhilPeople work for the profession.
