Project Grant: Spring 2020 Peer review participants
The peer review process relies on the time and dedication of experts across the health research spectrum. For the Spring 2020 Project Grant competition, a total of 1219 individuals* (including Chairs , Scientific Officers , reviewers ) participated in 58 peer review committees. The ECR Observer Program was suspended for this competition, so 0 ECR observers were present.
*Note: Some individuals played multiple roles, such as chairing one review panel and then acting as a peer reviewer in another, which is why the role counts may not add up to 1219.
Approximately 82% (1009) of the committee members are members of the College of Reviewers, which has specific membership selection criteria. As a first step, CIHR staff provided lists of suggested reviewers based on specific selection criteria, and then all reviewers (100%) were vetted by committee Chairs and Scientific Officers.
