Sign up to Peer Review

Access 2022 is seeking peer reviewers to help select presentations for this year's conference. Do you work with some aspect of library technology? Have you attended 0-28 Access Conferences? Then you're exactly who we're looking for! You do not need to attend the conference to volunteer as a peer reviewer. The reviewing period will be May 20 to June 10, 2022.

The peer review process is anonymous for both authors and reviewers. Those who have submitted Access Conference session proposals are welcome and encouraged to become peer reviewers as well. You won’t receive your own proposal to review.

Peer reviewers are responsible for reading and reviewing conference proposals and making recommendations to the Program Committee. Proposals are a maximum of 250 words and we expect each review to take no more than 30 minutes. Each reviewer could be assigned two or three proposals to review depending on the number of submissions we receive.

The peer review process is managed through this site. There are two ways you can volunteer:

  1. Register for a new account and at the bottom of the registration form, select Yes, I would like to be contacted with requests to review submissions to this journal. Please indicate your Reviewing Interests and click on Register
  2. If you have an existing account (i.e. you presented or were a reviewer sometime since 2019), log in to your account (and yes, there is a Forgot Your Password link!). Select your profile in the top right corner of the window, click on the Roles tab and select the Reviewer role. Please indicate your Reviewing Interests and click on Save.

Please indicate your interest to be a reviewer by Wednesday, May 18, 2022. We will assign reviews on May 20th and all reviews must be completed by June 10th.

If you have any questions, please contact us at
