- 2013 Comparative Review of Scientific Research
The DOE Office of Nuclear Physics (NP) Physics Research Division is planning a comparative panel review of university and laboratory research it supports in the subfields of Heavy Ions, Medium Energy, Nuclear Structure and Nuclear Astrophysics, Nuclear Theory, and Fundamental Symmetries . The panel review sessions will take place in May and June of 2013.
The purpose of comparative panel reviews of scientific research subfields in the NP Physics Research Division is to obtain independent, expert, peer review comparative evaluations of the competitiveness of supported research activities as part of NP’s continuing effort to ensure the science it supports is of the highest merit, quality, and impact. The outcomes of the review will provide input essential to NP’s overarching goal of sustaining the most vibrant, high quality portfolio of nuclear science possible within available resources, consistent with program balance and with the strategic vision for US nuclear science developed in partnership with the research community and other stakeholders.
Instructions for the review and updated Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) are now available. Further information will be posted here as it becomes available.
