Town Hall for Planetary Science Research Programs Using Dual-Anonymous Peer Review

On June 29, 2023, at 3:00 p.m. ET, NASAโ€™s Planetary Science Division (PSD) will host a webinar to discuss the Dual-Anonymous Peer Review (DAPR) process for research programs in the Planetary Science Division under ROSES-2023, including all of the Data Analysis Programs (DAPs; Cassini, Discovery, Lunar, Mars, and New Frontiers DAPs), Exoplanet Research Program (XRP), Habitable Worlds, all Participating Scientist Programs, and the Planetary Protection Research Program, which will be DAPR for the first time. 

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.ย The webinar will: (1) discuss the motivation for dual-anonymous peer review and how the Science Mission Directorate (SMD) has used it to date, (2) describe how to be compliant with dual-anonymous peer review, and (3) explain how dual-anonymous peer reviews will work.ย We will also focus on specific examples relative to the programs in PSD using DAPR.ย 

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