Proposal Review Committee

BACK

The Proposal Review Committee is responsible for analyzing and comparing the proposals submitted by academic users based on the review of the advisors, members of the committee, to determine which of the proposals will be recommended.

The Proposal Review Committee will analyze: the technical and scientific quality of the proposal and the team, the production of experimental reports and the history of previous proposals (publications, theses, etc …). Grades from 1 (lowest) to 5 (highest) will be assigned to the items below; the overall grade will be the average between them.

Technical and Scientific quality of the proposal:

  • Are the scientific motivation and objectives of the experiment clearly described?
  • If it is a continuation of a previous proposal, is the justification adequate?
  • Are the samples to be studied clearly described and characterized?
  • Are there preliminary studies that justify measurements with synchrotron light?
  • The expected results using synchrotron light seem to have scientific or technical relevance? Is the technique adequate?

Quality of the team:

  • Is the team dynamic in terms of publications?
  • Is the team well-formed to carry out the proposal? Are there enough participants for beam time to be used effectively? Does the team have participants with experience in the technique? Typically, for two- or three-day experiments, the team should consist of at least two or three members. A synchrotron light experiment is rarely a solitary experiment.

Production of reports and publications*:

  • Have reports been produced on previous experiments? The reports, when submitted to SAU Online, are automatically added to the end of the proposal PDF.
  • Have previous publications related to experiments with synchrotron light been of good quality? When available, this list will also be added to the proposal.

* When there is no previous proposal, disregard this item.

The members of the latest Proposal Review Committees are listed below.
