The TD1306 COST Action PEERE <http://www.peere.org/> organises an
interdisciplinary conference on peer review. The conference aims to provide
a forum for scholars, practitioners and science stakeholders to share
evidence on peer review in different fields, e.g., medicine, computer
science, social sciences and humanities. It aims to stimulate the use of
evidence-based research in the design and implementation of peer review in
a variety of fields and encourage more systematic research.

The conference welcomes any contribution (e.g., original research, position
papers, literature reviews) that uses any method (e.g., quantitative,
experimental or qualitative) to investigate peer review in a variety of
scientific domains (e.g., scholarly journals, funding agencies, research
assessment). Interdisciplinary research is especially welcome.

Main topics of interest


The topics of interest to the conference include, but are not limited to:

·        Quantitative and qualitative analysis of peer review in scholarly
journals and funding agencies

·        Estimating editorial and reviewer bias

·        The impact of different peer review models (single vs. double
blind, confidential vs. open etc.) on reviewer attitudes and editorial

·        Incentives, motivation and recognition in peer review

·        Social network analysis of peer review and editorial policy

·        Models and theories of peer review: principles, functions and

·        Applications of bibliometrics, altmetrics and scientometrics to
peer review

·        Perspectives from policy makers, grant funding agencies,
libraries, and publishers

·        Computer simulation studies of peer review dynamics and outcomes

Submission and publication


All papers must be original, unpublished, and not submitted for publication
elsewhere. We encourage two types of submissions: full papers, 10 to 12
pages, single column, max 8000 words or extended abstracts, 3 to 4 pages
max, single column. Submissions should include title, author(s), including
affiliations and corresponding author address, abstracts (in case of full
papers), keywords, text (including tables and figures) and references.

Submissions will be judged on their originality, significance, clarity,
relevance, and technical correctness. Each submission will be peer
-reviewed by at least two programme committee members. External reviewers
will be used in case of lack of expertise of the programme committee
members. The peer review process will follow a single-blind procedure.

To manage submissions, we use Easychair. To submit, please click on this
