When reviewing for the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society, you are asked to rate the submission on the following qualities:
- Originality of concepts
- Theoretical contribution
- Technological contribution
- Technical soundness
- Thoroughness of results
- Importance of results
- Relevance of applications
- Clarity of presentation
- Relevance to field
I can't find any guide defining these terms. Some of them are obvious, others less so.
What is the difference between "Relevance to field" and "Relevance of applications"?
What is the difference between "Technical soundness" and "Thoroughness of results"? It's hard to imagine one without the other.
I feel that the IEEE should define what they mean by these terms.
