(Double) blinded review is the current state of the art for scientific publications, but it is known to have disadvantages especially in terms of transparency. The EU H2020 project OpenUp (http://openup-h2020.eu/) has developed a cohesive framework for an open review-disseminate-assess process that is fit to support and promote Open Science.

The eHealth2018 will support these activities by organizing the Best Master Paper Award within the OpenUp Open Review Process. All other submissions will be reviewed according to a regular double-blinded review process.
