ReviewData

This is a relational dataset of academic peer-review. It consists of four main tables and relations between them. The data covers two thousand submissions to ten conferences and workshops in computer science. The years 2017—2019 are represented. Importantly, it contains both accepted and rejected submissions.

ReviewData was created by compiling data from OpenReview, Scopus and the Shanghai University Rankings.
