Lieters comments on the rankings
 "The ratings strike me as fairly plausible, though there are some odd results. "

Philosopher Gualtiero Piccinini (Missouri/St. Louis) suggests:

I recently spoke with a member of the committee that ranked philosophy journals.  He explained the ESF criteria as follows:
Journals that "make the discipline" got an A.Journals with international audiences, authors, and editorial boards got a B.Other European journals got a C.
It appears that many European journals were considered of too marginal interest to be ranked at all.

Thom Brooks comments:
The list is much better than previous incarnations, including certain journals of reputation and high standing excluded before. However, there are a number of oddities that remain.
