School of Global Studies

Internal peer review

Internal peer review is an essential part of the grant application process. 

Submissions are signed off by the School Director of Research and Knowledge Exchange (DRKE) on the basis that peer review has taken place and that recommendations have been incorporated into the final bid. 

Liaise with your Departmental Research Leads: Peter Newell - International Relations, James Fairhead - Anthropology, Alan Lester - Geography (will direct to the appropriate Geography Researcher Cluster Lead to identify reviewers).

There are usually two reviewers but this can vary depending on the nature and scale of the bid. If you are developing a proposal of over £500,000 contact James Fairhead who will help convene an appropriate Proposal Review Group.

Please contact Fergal Raftery – Assistant Research Manager for Global Studies (, for further details, as these vary by department.
