Motivation: Two referee comments within a reasonable time frame. Yet the referees were obviously both economists who (I) didn't competently engage at all with the philosophical substance of my paper and (ii) were hyper-critical of the experimental component of my paper (it was an X-phi paper). I've since been able to place this paper in a great journal, but be warned, if you're trying to publish a piece that involves formalism or an experiment the editors seem to hold you to the same standard practicing economists publishing in top econ journals are held too. This is ridiculous, as I've read lots of very bad philosophical pieces written by economists in this journal. Instead, I'd suggest you publish in PPE, Philosophy of Science or BJPS. They find reasonable reviewers for formal work.
