Paper and Panel proposals will all undergo peer review. For this reason, we will have a critical need for peer reviewers. Peer reviews assignments will be made as soon as papers come in, with deadlines ranging from 1 April to 31 May, depending upon when submissions are received.
Signing Up to Be Reviewer
PSRC 2021 uses the Informing Science Institute’s peer review system. To serve as a review, you should sign up for a colleague account. In filling out the data, be sure that you select the PSRC as a review option. You may, of course, choose to review for other journals (such as the Muma Business Review or Muma Case Review) but this will likely mean that you will receive review assignments outside the conference.
Depending upon the number of submissions and number of reviewers, you may expect up to three papers and/or panel proposals to review for the conference.
