About the Physics Education Research Conference Proceedings
Contributed papers are those associated with contributed presentations in a poster session or a roundtable discussion given at the annual PERC.
All contributed papers are peer reviewed with the understanding that submissions may describe preliminary results and works-in-progress.
Invited papers are those associated with invited presentations given in a plenary session, a symposium session, or a workshop at the annual PERC.
Each PERC Plenary speaker is expected to submit a paper documenting his/her presentation.
Other invited presenters are encouraged to submit a paper related to their presentation.
Invited papers submitted to the PERC Proceedings are copy-edited by the Invited Section Editor. If significant changes are required, the paper will be returned to the authors to make the necessary modifications prior to publication.
While invited papers are normally not peer reviewed; if submitted by the deadline for contributed papers, invited papers can be part of the peer review. Invited papers that are submitted to the peer review and are accepted will appear in the Contributed section of the PERC Proceedings. Invited papers that are submitted to the peer review and are subsequently rejected are copy-edited and published in the Invited section of the PERC Proceedings.
