Bid behavior of conference referees

Rodriguez MA, Bollen J, Van de Sompel H. 2007. Mapping the bid behavior of conference referees. Journal of Informetrics 1(1):68-82.
DOI: 10.1016/j.joi.2006.09.006

The article analyses the possible factors influencing the bid behavior of conference referees. For instance, referee fatigue can be responsible for the quality of the peer review process: a valid study may be rejected or a fraudolent one may be accepted. Further studies and data on this issue are needed.
