Reviewers have to submit critiques and scores electronically for assigned applications during the Submit and Edit phases. Reviewers may also submit critiques and scores for applications that they are not assigned.

Basic Tasks:

  • Critique Templates -- NIH provides review critique templates for reviewers to use in preparing their written comments. Your scientific review officer (SRO) will provide review critique templates. Templates can be found in IAR meeting materials or by clicking on the application’s  ‘Critique Template’ link on the List of Applications screen. Reviewers can also download all critique templates for all applications specifically assigned to them by using the zip file link on the List of Applications screen (See Reviewers: Locating Critique Template link in IAR). If you have any questions please contact your SRO.
