Open review process

The Open Science program follows an open review process, as defined in the UNESCO Open Science Recommendation. This approach involves the publication of :

- The names of the experts in the Reviewers' Pool
- Reports from the Reviewer's Pool (one report per deadline)
- Decisions of the Open Science Delegation regarding these reports (one report per deadline)

Please note that all reviewers are screened and as a result will be excluded from the reviewing process in case of conflict of interest.
