Expert review

To complete the expert review, you must first log in with your username and password at this link.

Screenshots will serve as a template for you to follow. Some of the information is for the conference organizers and will be highlighted in black. Please do not pay any attention to it.

Once logged in, you will be redirected to the home page of the website. You will have access to a number of tabs. To proceed with the review, please click on the Sessions tab.

Figure 1. Home page

Figure 2. Criteria filtering options

This tab lists all the sessions proposed in the framework of the 9th International Degrowth Conference. 4 criteria uniquely determine each session: 

  • Title,
  • Theme, which is necessarily 1 of the 12 themes of the conference. If you click on Theme, the list of sessions will be automatically sorted by theme. If you place your cursor slightly to the right of Theme, you will see a filter appear (rightmost icon in Figure 2, in the purple box). After clicking on this icon, a list of all 12 topics will be displayed, so that you can select the topics that interest you the most. 
  • Session type, which describes the type of presentation offered (Special session, Paper presentation, Non academic session). The same filtering options are available. Click on Session type or on the rightmost icon to start filtering.
  • Number of reviews, which simply states the number of peer reviews that have already been done. These sessions are still missing Expert Reviews
Figure 3. Filtering of sessions to be evaluated according to 3 criteria

To choose the session you are going to evaluate (among the over 300 still available to be done that are below the filtering section), you can use 3 filtering criteria: 

  • Filtering by keyword: To do this, enter a keyword (it is important to enter only one, otherwise you may not get any results). 
  • Filtering by average score attributed to sessions: You must then choose a type of filtering (lower, lower or equal, equal, higher or equal, higher), then the associated score.
  • Filtering by category: Tick the boxes corresponding to the categories you are interested in and feel able to evaluate. 

Once you have filled in the various selection criteria that you feel are relevant, click Select to start filtering. If you ever want to change your filters, you can either go back or click Clear for the first 2 criteria and check or uncheck the boxes on the third criterion. 

You now have access to all the sessions that match your criteria. To access its content, click on the title of the session you wish to access.

Figure 4. Summary of the selected session

If you now wish to evaluate the session, please go to the Ratings sub-tab (see Figure 6).

Figure 5. Session review

It is then possible to review the chosen project. To review the session, you will need to : 

  • Answer 4 questions (Thematic relevance, Clarity of presentation, Originality, Degrowth relevance). Please note that the minimum score is 1 and the maximum score is 5 for each question.
  • Please leave a comment as well, in order to refine your thinking and clarify what you think is relevant in the presentation.

Then click on Create Review when you are sure you have completed your assessment. Do this process as many times as required. 

If you encounter problems please write to support@odrast.hr naming the session that you found problematic. Please complete all your reviews before February 19 2023.

Peer review

Please go to the submission platform to log into your personal profile. There you will find a link for Peer Review. Once you have clicked on the link Peer Review, you will be redirected to this page. 

Depending on the number of submissions you have made, you will be allocated a number of sessions to review. The number of sessions you will need to review and those you have already reviewed are indicated below the title 9th International Degrowth Conference.

Below this, each case corresponds to a session that we suggest you review. Each proposal is based on links between the topics you are addressing in your session and those addressed by the person who wrote the proposal. To the right of the 9th International Degrowth Conference, you will find a counter that indicates your completion rate of the review process. The tick on the right hand side of a box indicates that you have already assessed it.

For each session, click on Open for a more detailed description of the proposed session (refer to the sessions in the second row of the example for this part, this is what you will see first). Once you have read the content of the session, return to the previous page.

You now have 2 choices: 

  • If you click on the Accept box, it means that you agree to review this session. Please note this selection is irreversible and once you accept to review it, you must also complete reviewing that proposal. 
  • If you click on the Skip box, the related session will disappear and you will be offered a new session related to your preferred topics.

When you check the Accept box, you will now have 2 options (refer to the first and third sessions in the first row of the example for this part): 

  • Open: this option allows you, as before, to access the detailed content of the session. However, as it is also accessible from the Review button, this button is no longer useful.
  • Review: This option allows you to access the detailed content of the session in question, but also to answer the questions asked for the review process. Once you have answered all the questions, you can press the Submit button, located below the questions. 

Please note: Once you have validated your answers to the questions, you will not be able to modify them. Please check that you have answered correctly all the questions before submitting your review.

Peer reviews are averaged between peer and expert reviewers (Scientific Advisory Committee). 

If you really must make an important modification, please send an email to support@odrast.hr. The change will then be made manually. We will not be able to respond to all requests, so please be careful when filling in the questionnaire, so as not to overload our support services. 

Please complete all your reviews before February 19 2023.
