How does Internet Assisted Review fit into the existing Peer Review process?
Where does Streamlining fit into the process?
Reviewers for IAR: SRA finalizes meeting assignments, selects meeting for IAR and specifies critique submission and other deadlines.
Process 2. Reviewer Registers for IAR:
Reviewer account creation and registration via email.
6. Summary Statement drafts are built from critiques.
4. Read-Only Phase: After submission deadline, Reviewers “may” read other Reviewer’s critiques. Reviewers must contact SRA to get a late critique submitted (manually by SRA). If a reviewer has not submitted, the SRA “may” block the Reviewer from reading.
5. Optional Edit Phase: After the meeting, Reviewers “may” modify their critiques.
3. Reviewers log in and submit critiques and preliminary priority scores for their applications.
