We (David Chalmers and David Bourget) are pleased to announce the
launch of MindPapers, a new website with a bibliography covering
around 18000 published papers and online papers in the philosophy of
mind and the science of consciousness.  This site grew out of a
combination of David Chalmers' old bibliography in philosophy of mind
and his page of online papers on consciousness, but it is much larger
and has many new capacities, programmed by David Bourget.  The site
address is:

  http://consc.net/mindpapers/

The top-level structure is as follows.  There is an all-new section on
the philosophy of perception (with 50 subtopics and subsubtopics), and
many new subtopics and subsubtopics throughout.

    * Part 1: Philosophy of Consciousness [2773 entries]
    * Part 2: Intentionality [2365 entries]
    * Part 3: Perception [1816 entries]
    * Part 4: Metaphysics of Mind [2153 entries]
    * Part 5: Miscellaneous Philosophy of Mind [2338 entries]
    * Part 6: Philosophy of Artificial Intelligence [1187 entries]
    * Part 7: Philosophy of Cognitive Science [1526 entries]
    * Part 8: Science of Consciousness [3920 entries]

Capacities include (i) links and citation information throughout, (ii)
flexible navigation, display, and search options, (iii) the ability to
submit and edit entries, (iv) the capacity for automated off-campus
proxy access to commercial sites, and (v) a wealth of statistical
information.

There is also a separate front end for "Online Papers on
Consciousness".  Where MindPapers now combines both offline published
papers and online papers from free and commercial sites, Online Papers
on Consciousness is devoted to free online papers (currently around
4700).  It is based on the same database as MindPapers, but is
organized in a way to emphasize issues concerning consciousness and
cognitive science rather than the philosophy of mind.  The address is

  http://consc.net/online/

We encourage everyone to try these sites and to submit relevant
material that we are missing (try searching on your own name).  There
are tools on the site for submitting entries and corrections, as well
as for notifying us about bugs and suggestions.
