Signals are an important part of the CSPP peer review process. They are intended to widen the scope of publishable articles by placing the reputational cost of publication on authors rather than on the journal.
Please note:
Positive signal = 1, negative signal = 0, positive/negative signal = 0.5

Only signals marked with a “*” are used to calculate the JoPP Signal (on the peer reviewed paper pages).

Reviewer A

The paper has been much improved since the review. It presents an interesting argument for co-production of artefacts and the impact of co-production on perceived and actual value of objects. There is a clear position in existing literature, the study presents reasonable evidence for the insights it claims, and shows a realistic view on its limitations.

Reviewer B

The article explores how maker practices can be incorporated in heritage institutions. The authors present an interesting study of how 3D printed souvenirs may complement visitors’ heritage experience. Their insights are especially relevant for heritage practitioners and museums’ audience development. The paper has been thoroughly revised and improved as a result of the review process.
