I’ve heard privately from several philosophers that they submitted articles and heard nothing for months. It’s been years since a new issue of the journal came out. If you go to the journal’s new website, there is now a statement that “Philo is no longer accepting submissions.”
I have no inside information about what may or may not have happened behind the scenes, but I think it is very unprofessional to leave authors and subscribers in the dark like this for so long. If they are going to cease publication, they should make an announcement and be done with it. If they are going to resume publication in the year X, they should announce that.
