The new User Administration System (UAS) has been developed to make the process for reviewers as simple and straightforward as possible. The aim of the notes below is to help you become familiar with this process. Please remember that we only ask you to read, comment and grade those proposals assigned to you. (We may seek your advise on a few proposals outside of your panel), but of course you have access to all proposals in your panel.
1. Login to UAS
2. Click on your name in the top right hand side of the screen and press “Switch to Peer Reviewer role”. This will change your view to enable you to undertake your scientific assessments.
3. Click on the “Reviews” tab at the top of the page.
4. The table shown gives a list of all proposals to be considered by your panel (note you are not required to review all of these) plus any specific cross panel proposals (if appropriate) for you.
- Access route: Standard (previously Direct) is an application for beamtime in the next AP. Block Allocation Group (BAG) and Long Term Proposals (LTP) are a request for access over a 2 year period. For new BAG or LTP applications the panel member needs to consider whether the proposals are eligible for this longer term access. Please state in your comments whether the proposal should be considered as a BAG/LTP or downgraded to a standard proposal.
- Alternate Beamline: these are identified and will have been passed to another panel if applicable.
- Continuation: Users now have an opportunity to link a new proposal to a previously submitted proposal. This column highlights whether it is a resubmission or a continuation.
- Technical Assessments: includes feasibility rating and comments from PBSs on all beamlines requested.
- Required to Review: informs you whether you need to review the proposal as PRP 1, PRP 2 or PRP 3. If this is flagged as “Yes” then we will be expecting a grade and comment.
- Conflicts: identifies anyone within the panel who has a conflict with the proposal
