Internal Peer Review Process
The Institute of Primary Care and Public Health's internal peer review process is dependent on the support and co-operation of the research staff in our collective endeavour to produce high quality research funding proposals.
The Institute has developed an internal peer review process which has recently been rolled out across the School of Medicine.
Principal Investigators must complete the Outline Template at least 6 weeks ahead of the application submission deadline, and send to Mrs Angela Watkins for logging the application and forwarding to the applicable programme lead for review.
Strategic input will be offered at this initial concept stage by the respective Programme Lead:
Peer review documents and guidance
The following documents are available to download to assist researchers in the Institute research application process:
Fully worked up proposals are put through a systematic, efficient internal peer review process which aims to offer help with constructive criticism and practical suggestions for improvement before submission to the funder.
By ‘adding value’ to proposals in this way, it is hoped that the Institute’s research applications will be of a consistently high standard, ultimately resulting in an increased number of grants being awarded.
The Institute of Primary Care and Public Health aims to make the application process as user friendly as possible – feedback is welcomed from members and should be sent to Institute Support and Communication Officer, Angela Watkins.
