Abstract

Peer review is a mainstay of academic publication – indeed, it is the peer-review process that provides much of the publications’ credibility. This working group is examining the ways peer review is used in various computing education venues and will use this examination to articulate community standards for peer review in this discipline. We examine peer review from three viewpoints, those of community, process, and expectations: The community of reviewers How are reviewers recruited and selected? How are they trained? What feedback do they get? What roles are there in the review process? What titles correspond to these roles? Process: from review to decision How are reviewers matched to papers? How are the reviews used in making accept/reject decisions? What are the possible decisions? Are there multi- ple rounds of reviewing? What information is shared among reviewers, program chairs, and authors? Expectations What is a reviewer expected to do when review- ing a paper? What are the reviews intended to accomplish, and who is the intended audience? What are the ethical rules associated with reviewing? How is a reviewer supposed to deal with issues of broken anonymity (if applicable)? This examination is based on multiple data sources: published standards and descriptions from computing education conferences and journals; interviews with people who have served in various edito- rial and reviewing roles; papers and stated review principles from other disciplines. The working group report will present the compiled standards and guidance for mentoring reviewers.
