CIRA Peer Review Program

Peer ReviewAre you planning to submit a grant application? Do you have a manuscript in progress? Are you working on a presentation for a conference? Increase your chances for success by having your work peer-reviewed!

Why CIRA peer review? What are the benefits?

  • The spirit of our program is one of collegiality and respect; it is constructive rather than evaluative in nature
  • The investigator or author receives constructive feedback from a multidisciplinary group of colleagues with relevant expertise
  • It facilitates a discussion on how to communicate the content more clearly and effectively
  • The process allows the investigator or author to practice how to respond to reviewer feedback
  • The review sessions connect the investigator or author to a useful network for expanding knowledge and exploring potential collaborations across disciplines
  • It provides input on the relevancy of the proposal/manuscript/presentation to the funding agencies/mechanisms, journals, and audience

Email Katie Doucet (katie.doucet@yale.edu) for questions or to schedule a Peer Review session. Requests for peer review must be submitted 4 weeks prior to the requested review date.

Research Snapshot Series

Research Snapshot iconCIRA's Research Snapshot series features one page summaries of completed, peer reviewed and published studies conducted by our affiliated scientists. The summaries describe the reason for the study, the key findings, and implications for practice and policy, presented in plain language. Each of the briefs also include a link to a published article in a peer reviewed journal that derives from the featured study.

If you are a CIRA Affiliate and interested in submitting a brief for publication or just want to discuss the process, contact Pete Donohue, pete.donohue@yale.edu.
