It also usually depends on the credibility of a peer review process so
that the academic can count it as an official publication.

If we need to cater for this market specifically - one approach is to
create an online journal, where the best papers submitted on GNSO issues
are published - with an appropriate peer review process.

In any case, all papers will be published online and archived.   A
selection of substantive papers will be presented via oral presentation.
Both an audio file and a full transcript of any oral presentations will
be made for the public record.
