Reviewing for the Conference
If you are interested in serving as a Reviewer for the 2018 ANZAM Conference please contact Associate Professor Bevan Catley B.E.Catley@massey.ac.nz
Please note the timing of the review period (July-September) and ensure that you will be available to review typically up to 3 papers during this time. You are expected to provide constructive advice for authors on how to improve their papers for presentation at the Conference and subsequent publication, along the lines of the review criteria listed below.
Paper Review Process
Papers submitted for presentation at the Conference will be reviewed and authors will be advised of their acceptance and presentation type by 3 September 2018, and 28 September 2018 for acceptance of revised submission of papers.
All Conference papers will be refereed using a double-blind peer review process. The review criteria include: significance/importance of the topic; conceptual foundation/relevant literature; research questions; aims and objectives; methodology; quality of analysis/coherence of argument; relevance of findings for theory/policy/practice; clarity/readability, and overall evaluation (including contribution).
Each submission must state, on its front/cover page, and first page of the paper proper at the top right, the requested Stream (number and title) and requested session format (Refereed Delivered or Refereed Interactive). The front/cover page should also indicate if the author(s) wish to opt out of full paper publication in the Conference proceedings in favour of publication of an abstract only. Papers without these indicators will be treated as a submission to Refereed Delivered sessions with full publication in the Conference proceedings.
