The PeerPress Scholarly Conference Platform provides a solution for hosting scholarly conferences and for producing and publishing undergraduate research. It uses digital approaches to transform conference and publishing activities by facilitating peer review, collecting rich presentation materials, and capturing participant contributions and conference ephemera.
PeerPress has been used multiple times to support the national Computers and Writing Conference. The participant driven ethos of the platform not only facilitates conference organization but also makes the scholarly approaches associated with conferences more iterative and peer driven.
Peerpress also provides a platform for promoting undergraduate research. Linked with research festivals or publishing, the platform facilitates the implementation of conferences and online research journals, serving as a catalyst for collaboration and research activities.
