NSF Releases Reviewer Training Video

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is committed to ensuring a fair, competitive, and transparent merit review process. The reviews submitted by external peer reviewers are an important part of the decision-making process and a crucial source of feedback to Principal Investigators. NSF has developed a short reviewer orientation video that provides helpful tips for writing high quality reviews.  

 NSF encourages all reviewers to watch the orientation video, “The Art and Science of Reviewing Proposals.”  You can view the video directly at https://tipsforreviewers.nsf.gov

The video will also be useful to those reviewing proposals for other agencies and for those reviewing journal manuscripts.  We hope that you will take advantage of this free resource.
