The review process was double – blind, via EasyChair system. Two reviewers were assigned to each paper based on their expertise for a given topic. Standardised form was used for evaluating topic relevance, contribution to the information behaviour field, literature review, theoretical basis, empirical basis, and writing and expression. Based on the overal evaluation scores and the detailed narrative reviews, the papers were either: 1) accepted with minor changes, 2) conditionally accepted with major changes, or 3) rejected. Papers that needed major changes entered the second round of the detailed double – blind review, and the papers that needed only minor changes were cheched by the Chairs of the Programme Committe. After the final acceptance, the Local Organizing Committe has done additional copy-editing, final proof-reading and html conversion in accordance with the Information Research instructions.
