Engage the Best Reviewers
The excellence of peer review is directly correlated to our ability to recruit and retain the most accomplished, broad-thinking and creative scientists to serve on study sections.
Improve the Quality & Transparency of Review
Peer review must consistently identify an application’s relative merit, potential for scientific and/or public health impact, and feasibility.
Ensure Balanced & Fair Reviews
Peer review should fairly evaluate proposals from all scientists, regardless of their career stage or discipline, and avoid bias toward more conservative and proven approaches at the expense of innovation and originality.
Continuous Review of Peer Review
A critical component in assuring core values of peer review is the continuous review of peer review activities.
