NIH: Don't Say No to Peer Review Service
By Carol Lunn (on 2/26/2015 @ 15:05:37, in Professional Development, read 396 times)
In a recent blog post and notice, NIH officials have made clear that recipients of the agency's largess should give back as peer reviewers. NIH first announced five years ago that it "calls upon investigators who have received research grant funding from the NIH to serve...when invited to do so." At the time, NIH also said, "this expectation for service is entirely voluntary and an inability to serve has no impact on an investigator's ability to compete for grant support." On Feb. 20, Richard Nakamura, director of NIH's Center for Scientific Review, the office that handles most of the peer review of applications for funding, addressed the issue anew on the blog Rock Talk, so-named because posts are usually authored by Sally Rockey, NIH's deputy director for extramural research. NIH crunched the numbers on the 25,500 investigators who have received "a total of $1 million in total costs from NIH in the last five years" and, based on the calculation that "one day of peer review service per year would be considered a reasonable expectation for service," concluded that "currently fewer than half of these funded scientists (45%) achieve that level of service" on peer review groups, Nakamura said. The complementary NIH notice, "Reinforcing Service to the Biomedical Research Community," said, in part, "NIH expects principal investigators of NIH supported grants and contracts to serve on NIH peer review groups, when asked" and "expects grantee institutions and R&D [research and development] contract recipients to encourage" such service among their NIH-supported investigators.
