Abstract Review Methodology
Abstracts will be reviewed following the same methodology as CRE London. The organisational committee will be helped in this task by the review committee.
All abstracts will be reviewed ‘blind’ i.e. no names, institutional affiliation, email or identifying markers attached to abstracts. The list of all submissions will be given to the reviewers with only their title, abstract, and a number used to identify that submission.
Each abstract will be considered singly focusing on content and not English writing ability. Several guidelines are suggested as review grading criteria, such as:
– Quality of overall abstract, content, and scope.
– Applicability towards the conference theme of ‘Travel in Ancient Egypt’.
– Versatility of topic and ability to garner overall interest.
Each of the reviewers is asked to mark each abstract as ‘Yes,’ ‘No’, or ‘Maybe.’ Each answer is given a numerical value: Yes 1 – No 0 – Maybe 0.5. All votes will then be summed and will be given a Total Review Score (TRS).
