PEERE International conference on peer-review
The TD1306 COST Action PEERE organises an interdisciplinary conference on peer review taking place on March 7-9, 2018 in Rome. 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. The submission process will close on 1 December 2017.
Isabelle Boutron, MiRoR project coordinator, has been invited as a speaker and will talk about “Improving peer review via controlled experiments”. A few MiRoR research fellows are also planning to attend the event.
