Call for Reviewers

Physiotherapy UK 2018 hosted by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) will take place on 19 - 20 October 2018. 

The conference is now recruiting for two important roles:
1. Reviewers of platform and poster abstracts
2. Abstract review group members to oversee the peer review process.

So if you have experience in reviewing abstracts and a track record of publications and/or presentations and would like to act as a reviewer or abstract review group member, please respond to this survey.
Please note the following dates:
Reviewers must be available to review abstracts between 25 April and 17 May 2018.
Abstract review group members must be available to moderate reviews between 21 May 2018 and 6 June 2018 and must be available for a moderation meeting on 11 June 2018.


The number of abstracts sent to reviewers will depend on their area of expertise and the number of submissions received; however, it is anticipated that no reviewer will receive more than 20 abstracts.

The review process will begin from 25 April 2018 and all reviews must be completed and returned by 17 May 2018.

Before volunteering as a reviewer, please ensure that you can commit the time to meet this deadline.

Abstract review group members
Three to five members will be recruited to oversee all aspects of the abstract review process, including carrying out moderation of peer reviewed abstracts. The group will also judge physiotherapy UK poster competitions. 

Applications to join the group will be subject to a selection process. Successful applicants are likely to be highly experienced reviewers. 
Abstract review group members must be available to moderate reviews between 21 May 2018 and 6 June 2018. Full guidance is provided by the CSP and one moderation meeting is held by conference call. Group members must be available for the moderation meeting on 11 June 2018.
Draft terms of reference for this group will be available on the conference website shortly. Please note activities will be light touch in 2018 due to conference deadlines.

Please complete this questionnaire by 23 March 2018.
