Application Review Process - University Research Services

Full Application Review

The deadline to receive a FULL APPLICATION REVIEW  is August 1, 2017.

Note that the administrative review is NOT a scientific review (i.e. a review undertaken by health sciences researchers). Instead, an advisor will provide you with detailed editing feedback to help ensure that your application matches CIHR guidelines, help improve clarity of the written content, etc.

>> For applicants in the Faculty of Health Sciences, please email Gladys Smith (gladys.smith@queensu.ca) a draft copy of your proposal in Word format by August 1, 2017. Internal application reviews are MANDATORY for researchers in the Faculty of Health Sciences. Please note that applicants who have already requested and/or received an administrative review of their application DO NOT need to resubmit a draft of their proposal for review.

>> For applicants in all other faculties, please email a draft of your proposal to Kristina Arseneau (k.arseneau@queensu.ca) by August 1, 2017. Application reviews are OPTIONAL for researchers in other faculties, but are recommended.  

'Mini' Application Review

The deadline to receive a 'MINI' APPLICATION REVIEW from University Research Services is September 7, 2017. The 'mini review' will verify that your application matches CIHR guidelines and that all required components of your application are complete. Please note that detailed editing suggestions will NOT be provided. If you submit your application after September 7, 2017 we cannot guarantee that your application will receive a completeness check prior to submission to CIHR.

If you would like to have a 'mini' review by University Research Services, please: 1) enter all of your application information in ResearchNet, 2) generate a PDF of the full application and, 3) send the PDF document to Kristina Arseneau (k.arseneau@queensu.ca) no later than September 7, 2017. Applications will be reviewed on a first-come, first-serve basis.
