Internet and Society (Track D)

Talks on openness will cover the topics open science, open access, open data, open education, open hardware, open government, open innovation as well as co-creation, crowdsourcing, crowdfunding and participation. This track will be organised in cooperation with the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society.

Submission Format

The official conference language is English. Abstracts should be submitted online via http://conftool.gor.de/conftool14/
The abstract length can be up to 350 words. Abstracts will be peer-reviewed with respect to the quality of each of the four paragraphs in the abstract. Please submit your abstract until 15 November 2013. Extended Submission Deadline 19 November 2013.

Review Process

All abstracts are scored in a double-blind peer review by members of the GOR International Board according to the criteria mentioned in the submission format (clarity and quality of the four aspects: relevance & research question, methods & data, results, added value). Most submissions receive feedback and comments from 3 reviewers, together with the final decision of acceptance or rejection. Naturally, the chances of acceptance are increased if all four criteria are addressed in the abstract.
The program committee is in charge of the final decisions based on the reviews.
