We could substitute any discipline for 'philosophy' in the paper. Here, Richard Chappell argues, first, that "The 'filter then publish' model was designed for a non-digital world of high publication costs. Online publishing removes that constraint, enabling the shift to a superior 'publish then filter' model," and then, second, "AI will make it easier to "map" our collective knowledge, identifying the most important contributions and highlighting gaps where more work is needed." Both arguments are sound, in my opinion.I would add that a 'publish then filter' model doesn't require reviews per se; any response to the original article in a subsequent publication serves the function equally well. So we don't need to be concerned about incentivizing reviews.
