PEERE 2018 Conference on Peer Review, 7-9 March 2018, Rome, Italy

The TD1306 COST Action PEERE 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.

The submission process will be open on 1 June to close on 1 December 2017. The call for papers will be announced shortly.
