Project Grant: Fall 2020 Peer review participants
The peer review process relies on the time and dedication of experts across the health research spectrum. For the Fall 2020 Project Grant competition, a total of 1285 individuals (including Chairs , Scientific Officers , reviewers ) participated in 59 peer review committees. There were also 176 early career researcher (ECR) observers present during the peer review process.
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 1285.
Approximately 82% (1069) 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.
