Papers meeting all the peer review requirements will be designated as “peer reviewed” in the conference proceedings. Papers not meeting the peer review requirements will be published in the proceedings without the peer reviewed designation.
Peer Review Option: Authors have the option to have their paper peer reviewed. Peer reviews will be accomplished by independent reviewers and supervised by a committee. To be designated as peer reviewed:
PEER REVIEW CRITERIA
Other considerations and guidelines for ION conference paper peer reviewers:
PEER REVIEW PROCESS
Each paper shall be peer reviewed by two independent reviewers (typically the subject matter experts chairing the session). The paper must be passed by two independent reviewers in order for the paper to be designated as peer reviewed in the conference proceedings.
If the paper receives one endorsement for peer review by one peer reviewer, and the other reviewer fails to endorse, the paper shall be escalated to the conference’s technical program chair for management of a third review and adjudication.
Additionally, if for any reason a paper fails to receive two peer reviews (either a chair fails to perform a peer review in a timely manner or a conflict of interest is determined to exist), the paper shall be escalated to the conference’s technical program chair for management of a third review and adjudication.
NON-PEER REVIEWED PAPERS IN PROCEEDINGS
Papers that were not peer reviewed may still appear in the conference proceedings without a peer review designation. This may occur because either: 1) the paper did not pass peer review; or 2) the author did not submit the paper in time to enter the peer review process.
Other papers may be included in the conference proceedings for convenience and completeness for which peer review was not applicable/appropriate (i.e., panel presentations, keynote addresses, policy presentations, etc.).
