Reviewing for the Conference


If you are interested in serving as a Reviewer for the 2022 ANZAM Conference, please contact Dr Ryan Gould (


Please note the timing of the review period (July-August) 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 by Sunday 28 August 2022. Any revised papers must be resubmitted by Sunday 18 September 2022.


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). 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 with full publication in the Conference proceedings.


After the review period is completed, all reviewers, who have provided complete reviews of papers, will receive email confirmation of their reviewer activity, which they can add to their Publons ( record and retain for their personal records.
