Truly independent and unbiased reviews can be difficult to obtain. Use KnE Publishing’s Grant Proposal Review Services to ensure the integrity of your funding allocation processes, or evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of an academic’s application before submission.
Our Grant Proposal Review Service provides project management and co-ordination for the review process, sourcing expert reviewers from the world’s top 200 universities to evaluate each proposal and handling all administrative requirements at every stage from submission to decision.
Following a consultation with the funding committee to define evaluation criteria, we create a custom-built pool of international experts, ensuring the integrity of the grant system. Reviewers are sourced and recruited within 15 working days of an application being submitted. Each report will be produced within 30 working days of an application being assigned, inclusive of reviewer recruitment.
Every application is subjected to rigorous analysis from leaders in each subject field, in accordance with international academic standards, ensuring that only those which withstand the most robust evaluations are successful.
Our bespoke service has already proven indispensable to a number of leading universities in the United Arab Emirates. It both facilitates the shift to smaller, faster funding rounds and ensures the smooth delivery of large scale awards evaluations.
Simplify and speed up your review process
Independent evaluations from international experts
A unique, flexible service tailored to your needs
When a new grant scheme is announced, we consult with the funding institution regarding their specific evaluation criteria (subject matter, quantity and structure of the proposal, and preferred geographical location and seniority of the reviewers).
This information is used to source expert independent reviewers for each proposal. Each is interviewed and selected based on their availability and expertise. The reviewers are then screened to ensure there is no conflict of interest. We ensure each reviewer signs a non-disclosure agreement (NDA).
Once each review is submitted, we evaluate it to ensure fulfilment of the pre-established criteria. Anonymous double-blind peer review processes are maintained throughout.
Reviewer reports are delivered within 30 days from the date of application receipt, substantially reducing the time requirements for multi-tier review processes.
Once the reviews have been submitted, we produce a consolidated full-text report. Our team also provides an onsite feedback presentation to the research committee, analysing the strengths and weaknesses of the submissions and identifying potential capacity and capability-building requirements within your institution.
Individual researchers can also use our Grant Review Service to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of their applications before submission. We will help you identify areas for improvement and help you produce successful applications for external grants, both national and international. Experts with highly specialised subject-area expertise will perform an extensive review and create a report within 15 working days of submission and payment.
Sometimes the true value of a grant application can be overlooked, especially when it must be submitted in a foreign language for an overseas award opportunity. However, we can help you avoid this risk.
