What is the Peer Review College?
The Peer Review College (PRC) is made up of scholars with a track record in winning funding. Membership is by invitation only from the Pro Vice Chancellor for Research and Knowledge Exchange and via individual expressions of interest. Members normally serve for three years and this membership is renewable once.
Bids that qualify for university-level support through PRC review will be valued at £50k+. The funding councils and charities (Arts and Humanities Research Council – AHRC, Economic and Social Research Council – ESRC, British Academy/Leverhulme, Newton etc) also offer research leave and/or fellowship schemes, which require quite detailed and complex applications. The PRC will support these bids, even if they are less than £50k in value, if applicants want this.
PRC members will operate electronically, apart from one meeting in person each year, where issues and suggestions will be shared.
As far as is possible, PRC members will be sent an equal number of bids to peer review. The member chosen will, other than in exceptional circumstances, provide feedback via the Research Office within three weeks.
