Guidelines for Review
- Disposition Categories
: The summary should be accepted as is as a basis for
the full paper.
- ACCEPT WITH
SUGGESTED REVISION : The summary should be accepted
as a basis for the full paper,
and the suggested changes may or may not be made in
the full paper (changes
are entirely at the option of the author).
- REJECT UNLESS
REVISED : The summary should be rejected unless the
author responds suitably to the reviewer's comments
in the full paper (the revised full paper will be sent to reviewers in order
to review for comments).
: The summary should be flatly rejected (the author can
appeal the rejection directly to the Technical Program
- Each reviewer will
be assigned his/her own username and password which
are necessary to gain access to the review system. If you
have trouble accessing the system, please contact the TPC.
The usernames are purposely generically assigned to protect
the identities of reviewers.
- Your username
and password should not be disclosed to others. However,
while you may choose to delegate a coworker or colleague of yours
to help you review summaries, you are fully responsible
for the review comments and dispositions made using your
username/password. Therefore, it would be more appropriate
(and just as easy) to simply direct your helper(s) to the
TPC so that they may obtain their own reviewer username/password(s).
- The papers
(summaries and full papers) are
available solely for the purpose of conducting the review.
Any other use of the papers or web site could be considered
a violation of professional or ethical standards. For example,
reviewers should not widely distribute papers, nor should
they widely discuss or disseminate paper content. The author
may be in the process of preparing other papers or journal
articles, and there is an implied agreement that reviewers
will not dilute those efforts. Additionally, the final form
of an accepted paper may contain differences or corrections
from the revision being reviewed.
- Simply put: Please
use common sense and your best judgement in all these matters.
- In a nutshell, the
most important "rule of thumb" you should apply
is: Would you or other members of Reactor Physics society
benefit from reading this paper or attending its presentation?
If so, then the paper should be accepted (with revision
