1) Development of the CIHR Standards of Practice for Peer Review

Following a comprehensive consultation process, we have developed the CIHR Standards of Practice for Peer Review (SPPR) agreement in collaboration with the College Chairs.

The new SPPR promotes transparency and provide peer reviewers with added support by clearly outlining responsibilities and expectations. The SPPR will be added to the Conflict of Interest and Confidentiality task in ResearchNet, and peer review committee executives and members will be expected to consent to the SPPR in order to participate in peer review.

We have also published the Reviewer Quality Feedback form to further promote transparency in the review quality assurance process. This form will be used by CIHR to collect information on the performance of reviewers throughout the peer review process, and to highlight reviewers that are outstanding, or those that may need additional support. The specific criteria that CIHR will use to measure performance can be found on our new Review Quality Assurance Process page.

CIHR will be implementing recognition strategies for those reviewers that exemplify outstanding peer reviewer qualities, as well as supportive measures for those reviewers that would benefit from reminders of peer review best practices or from mentorship by their peers.

If you have questions, comments or concerns regarding the review quality assurance process, please contact the College of Reviewers:
