Papers is an online system that lets authors submit abstracts and papers for academic journals and conferences - with comprehensive peer review, editing and administration facilities available to the organisers.
The Papers system has been used a client for their conferences in 2014 and 2015. We are now making it available to other organisations.
Customisation to your specific submission process is possible, eg to only accept abstracts or use your particular scoring/review system. Please get in touch if you would like to access a demo system. Currently there is no means to make the final proceedings available on the website - but this can be added.
A Papers site can currently only handle one conference or journal at a time.
The system costs GBP1000 with an extra GBP250 over the course of the year for doing Drupal updates and other maintenance. This includes basic training done online/remotely. Any significant changes to the system would be chargeable. No VAT is charged. The site may be by PHDCC or by yourselves. You would handle the admin of the paper submission process.
