The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) launched an independent review of the EPSRC peer review process earlier this year. As part of this process, there is a community survey open to all to put forward their views until 30th September.
- The peer review process is designed to investigate:
- Influence of peer review on decision-making
- How peer review advice is sought and used to inform funding
- Transparency, cost effectiveness and extent of community ownership
The survey can be accessed at http://www.survey.bris.ac.uk/epsrc/irpr_survey.
Further information on the review and the panel leading the review is available at http://www.epsrc.ac.uk/newsevents/news/2013/Pages/independentreviewofpeerreview.aspx
