What's New in Peer Review
Thursday, February 6, 2014
The continuous submission policy has been changed. Beginning with R01, R21, and R34 grant applications submitted under the continuous submission option for the 2014/10 Council round:
- Applications will be assigned initially to the most appropriate Advisory Council meeting. Following initial peer review, if timing permits, applications may be considered in an earlier Advisory Council meeting.
- Summary Statements for applications submitted under the continuous submission option will be available no later than 30 days prior to the relevant Advisory Council meeting.
See NOT-OD-14-029 for additional details. Also see the Continuous Submission page.
