RSD11 Committees & Reviewers

The process of submitting papers and peer-reviewing is human knowledge mobilised through generosity, passion for learning, encouraging colleagues, and a flourishing mindset.

The Systemic Design Association and RSD Symposium would not be possible without RSD host organisations and contributors—and the organisers’ and reviewers’ dedication to collaboration and knowledge sharing—and organising, disseminating, and communicating this work.

Call for Contributions Process

RSD begins with calls for papers and other formats. The submissions are peer-reviewed, a critical feedback loop for knowledge sharing and mobilisation. Submissions and reviews are intended to be a process in which we all learn–the author/presenter, the reviewers, and the editors.

Two RSD review procedure for papers and presentations has two main elements. The first confirms the quality of the work: Is it original, are the references adequate, does it fit with the RSD symposium themes, and so on? The second is sometimes less spoken about. It is intended to provide constructive help rather than judgement. Reviewers suggest ways authors might improve their paper or presentation. We ask reviewers to take into account that all of us write differently. On the other hand, we are all readers, too, so part of the idea is to report on reader difficulties.

Engagement in systemic design through the RSD symposium series takes many forms and represents the contributions of hundreds of people and 1000s of hours. The programme committee develops a schedule that allows for a good number of sessions and offers extended opportunities for online colleagues across time zones.

  • All RSD papers and presentations go through a single-blind peer-review process, which means that reviewers see the authors’ names but not vice versa.
  • Reviewers consider the quality of the proposed contribution, its relevance to the annual theme, and its role in raising relevant issues in systemic design.
  • Once reviewed, the organisers notify all authors of (conditional) acceptance or rejection.
  • The review process provides feedback and possible suggestions for modifications.
  • The sessions for papers and presentations are formed based on the accepted contributions.

RSD11 Acknowledgements

RSD11 was made possible by hundreds of contributors, reviewers, and organisers.

Authors spend countless hours researching and writing their articles, and in 2022, RSD11 received submissions for 167 papers—more than ever before. The review process was managed by volunteer committee members, and a group of 90 peers made it possible to provide 2–3 reviews for every paper. The effort represents over 4,000 volunteer hours.

Although papers are single-blind reviewed, the following reviewers have agreed to be acknowledged.
