Instructions for Application Form to Volunteer to Review Papers for GHTC

GHTC would like to invite experienced reviewers with practitioner, researcher and policy backgrounds to submit an expression of interest to review papers.

These are the primary responsibilities for any reviewer:

  • Promote the Call for Papers to your colleagues, networks and mailing lists between now and end of May
  • Provide constructive, actionable feedback to all authors who submit Full Papers (up to 8 pages), Short Papers (3 – 4 pages) and Oral Presentation (1 page); Please complete and enter reviews in EDAS iteratively so we can notify authors once reviews are completed. This will allow them more time to submit a high quality final paper or presentation
  • Promote the Preliminary and Final Programs to colleagues and Networks between August and October

The Review Process this year can be summarized as follows

  • Call for Papers Deadline is late May
  • A single stage review process to be completed by 23-June

Expected Review Effort

We estimate the total effort required will be 6 – 8 hours over three weeks.

The Technical Program Chair will have the Track Chairs assign papers based on your stated subject matter expertise. These may be a mix of Full Papers, Short Papers or Oral Presentations. The average number of papers to be assigned to each reviewer will depend on whether the papers assigned are Full Papers (up to 8 pages), Short Papers (3 – 4 pages) or Oral Presentation (1 page), as the level of effort required differs for each type.

If you are only assigned Full Papers, you will be assigned 4 – 6 papers. If you are only assigned Short Papers, you will be assigned up to 8 – 12 papers.
