Internal mock reviews are an important part of the research process.
The ORS assembles a team of experienced local investigators to conduct mock reviews:
Shortly after the start of the research project, the mock-review team meets with the researcher to consult and to establish timelines.
Near the end of the project, a formal review simulates the funding-agency review, allowing the researcher to address oral/written critique and to strengthen the submission.
The ORS internal mock review process is carried out with confidentiality, collegiality, and respect. Reviewers both highlight strengths and make constructive suggestions in their written critiques.
