Inform your own research community!
Researchers need to know the full truth about how the reviewing system works, especially now that the rules of the game are changing, the political class is spinning, and the bureaucrats are running for cover.
One way to inform your own community is to ask your NSERC or SSCHRC or CIHR liaison committees (some disciplines already have one, and if not start one NOW!) to get to the bottom of the story, and to write a comprehensive report of this year’s competition, but also a comparison with past competitions.
Then publish them HERE! where they can be debated and where your questions will not be ignored.
We shall start doing so beginning Monday. Stay tuned
