Call For Papers

Following the success of the 1st PEERE International Conference on Peer Review, the PEERE COST Action follow-up community organises the second edition of the PEERE International Conference on Peer Review in Valencia on 11-13 March 2020.

The conference aims to provide a forum for scholars, practitioners and science stakeholders to share research, models, tools and experience 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, funding agencies and research assessment
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 decisions
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 management
Computer simulation studies of peer review dynamics and outcomes
Applications of bibliometrics, altmetrics and scientometrics to peer review
Perspectives from policy makers, grant funding agencies, libraries and publishers


We encourage two types of submissions: full papers, 10 to 12 pages, single column, max 8000 words or extended abstracts, 3 to 4 pages, 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.
