Internal Peer Review
Not all excellent research ideas are able to attract external funding. Exciting and innovative projects based on sound methods can sometimes fall because the case has not been well made, or not well explained to the non-specialists who are often part of the review process.
The University Research Committee has therefore endorsed the introduction of a system of internal peer review, to complement our existing systems of mentoring, informal discussion and support.
The aim of the internal peer review system is to support each other in translating ideas into proposals that will convince research funders.
There are three main documents:
- IPRW1: Internal Peer Review Guidance
- IPRW2: Internal Peer Review Flowchart
- IPRW3: Internal Peer Review Template for comments
Internal Peer Review College:
An Internal Peer Review College has also been established to provide informal advice alongside the formal process, to be a source of general information, and to provide a forum for discussion of funder policies and strategies.
