ISIC 2018 paper acceptance rates

Acceptance rate for full papers: 45% (30 out of 66)

Acceptance rate for Short papers: 52% (13 out of 25)

In total, the acceptance rate for Full and Short Papers: 48%

Full and short papers presented at the conference will be considered for publication in Information Research – a peer-reviewed international electronic journal.

The review process was conducted according to a double-blind standard, via the EasyChair system. Two reviewers were assigned to each paper based on their expertise for a given topic. In several cases, papers have been assigned to a third reviewer.

A standardised form was used for evaluating the topic relevance, contribution to the information behaviour field, literature review, theoretical basis, empirical basis, and writing and expression. Based on the overall evaluation scores and the detailed narrative reviews, the papers were accepted based on scale:

2: Acceptable with no suggestions (no further actions needed)
1: Acceptable but requires some minor rewriting by the author
0: May be accepted but after more substantial changes
-1: Not acceptable in its current format, but the author may be encouraged to revise and resubmit the paper according to reviewer feedback / or for a different format (e.g. short paper, poster)
-2: Definitely not accepted (not to be improved in any way).

Papers that needed major changes entered the second round of the detailed double-blind review, and the papers that needed only minor changes were checked by the Chairs of the Programme Committee.
