Learning for participants in peer review

CIHR offers a number of learning modules to help you gain in-depth knowledge about our programs, processes and tools. These modules are intended to ensure that all participants in the peer review process have the same base knowledge of the processes and policies in order to conduct effective and fair peer review. New lessons will be added on a regular basis, so please visit this page frequently.

Please note that all reviewers must take the modules listed under Excellence in Peer Review prior to participating in the peer review process. Additional learning material is also available to support participants in their role.
