NASA Planetary Webinar: Dual-Anonymous Peer Review Town Hall for Planetary and Exoplanets Research Programs

On Wednesday, April 28, 2021, at 3:00 p.m. EDT, NASA’s Planetary Science Division (PSD) will host a webinar to discuss the implementation of Dual-Anonymous Peer Review (DAPR) for the following programs under ROSES-2021: Cassini Data Analysis Program, Discovery Data Analysis Program, Exoplanet Research Program, New Frontiers Data Analysis Program, Lunar Data Analysis Program, and the Mars Data Analysis Program.

In Dual-Anonymous Peer Review, not only are proposers unaware of the identity of reviewers, but the reviewers do not have explicit knowledge of the proposing teams and institutions during the scientific evaluation of the proposal. The webinar will: (1) discuss the motivation for switching to dual-anonymous peer review, (2) describe important changes to proposal writing to be compliant with dual-anonymous peer review, and (3) explain how dual-anonymous peer reviews will work.

In advance of the webinar, questions may be submitted and upvoted on at:
