Eastern Arc Peer Review System

Eastern Arc provides the opportunity for applicants to get informal feedback from those outside of their own institution. This has two significant benefits:

  • It can provide more objective feedback, as the reviewer will not have a relationship with or knowledge about the applicant;  
  • It can provide more discipline-specific insights, if an applicant is working in a discipline that is small or isolated within a single university, or where specific disciplinary expertise for review is internally lacking.

As with the Eastern Arc Mentoring Scheme, the Peer Review System is intended to be simple, unbureaucratic, and to complement rather than replace those structures of support that already exist at each university.
