Our aim is to encourage research into the quality and credibility of peer review and scientific publication, to establish the evidence base on which scientists can improve the conduct, reporting, and dissemination of scientific research.

What? The Congress provides a forum for the presentation and discussion of research into the quality and credibility of editorial and funding peer review, scientific and scholarly publication, research and reporting practices, identification and management of biases, transparency, reproducibility, access, publication and dissemination metrics, identification and management of threats to the integrity of science, and advances in information exchange.
We invite abstracts summarizing original, high-quality research on any aspect of peer review and publication and the conduct, reporting, assessment, and dissemination of scientific research. A broad range of study designs will be considered, with preference given to well-developed studies with more generalizable results (eg, prospective, multiyear trials and controlled studies from collaborative researchers, journals, publishers, funders, and information disseminators). Retrospective studies, systematic reviews, meta-analyses, bibliometric and other data analyses, surveys, modeling studies, and other types of studies will also be considered. Abstracts that report new research and findings will be given priority and we also encourage studies that build on previous related research.
See the 9th Program for previously presented research.
Who? Participants include editors and publishers of scientific peer-reviewed journals, researchers, funders, bibliometric and informatics experts, information innovators, librarians, journalists, policymakers, ethicists, scientific information disseminators, and anyone interested in the progress of the scientific information enterprise and the quality of scientific evidence.
The Congress embraces a wide range of disciplines, including biomedicine, health and life sciences, applied sciences, basic sciences, physical and chemical sciences, mathematics, computer sciences, engineering, economics, and social sciences as well as new and emerging disciplines.
