Abstract

We model a family of peer-reviewing processes as game-theoretic problems. This helps to understand elements of existing peer-reviewing procedures, and to predict the impact of new mechanisms. Real world conference peer-reviewing processes are overly complex and here we define and analyze simple versions. Our versions provides a contribution towards formalizing and understanding these complex real world problems. The players of this game are the researchers that participate as authors and reviewers. A funding agency tries to maximize the social value by providing rewards to researchers based on their publications. Equilibria of truthful reviewing in described mechanisms is analyzed experimentally.
