IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems (TPDS) has a technical review board and a reproducibility review board, which complement its editorial board. The TPDS technical review board and reproducibility review board consist of experts in the parallel and distributed systems research community who have a track record of providing high-quality reviews of scholarly works. These review boards consist of fixed pools of reviewers that enable TPDS to provide timely and high-quality assessment of submitted manuscripts. Review board members serve a 24-month term, with a possibility to renew for a second term.
The goals of the review boards are three-fold: (1) to provide a pool of high-quality reviewers for TPDS, (2) to support the development of the next generation of leaders for TPDS, and (3) to recognize the contribution of high-quality reviewing to TPDS.
For TPDStechnical review board members, the member commits to reviewing up to 10 manuscripts and to provide manuscript reviews within 8 weeks of assignment. Each member will be assigned no more than 3 papers at any one time.
For TPDSreproducibility review board members, the member commits to reviewing up to 5 computational artifacts and to provide reproducibility reviews within 8 weeks of assignment. Each member will be assigned no more than 1 computational artifact at any one time.
Why Join a TPDS Review Board?
The stature of TPDS will confer recognition on its review board members that is similar to a top conference program committee. The journal will list the review boards next to the editorial board.
When TPDS review board members finish their term, those who performed well will become candidates for the TPDS editorial board.
Editorial board members will serve as “review mentors” and will be available to discuss challenging issues encountered in reviewing and to provide constructive feedback on reviews. This mentorship will bring opportunities to senior researchers to develop the next generation of leadership in the parallel and distributed systems community.
The TPDS editorial board will organize a meeting either online or, if possible, at a relevant scientific conference (e.g., SC, IPDPS, etc.), where TPDS associate editors (mentors) and review board members can discuss topics related to reviewing.
