Peer Review

Peer Review

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) directive, Final Information Quality Bulletin for Peer Review (December 16, 2004) requires a "systematic process of peer review planning" and access to a list of information products for official dissemination that will be peer reviewed as either influential scientific information or highly influential scientific assessments.

BSEE provides the following agenda for those information products for official dissemination that will be peer reviewed as influential scientific information or highly influential scientific assessments (as defined in the OMB directive). The peer review agenda will be updated as needed to remain current.

Please refer to the list below to view the peer review plans and corresponding research for the peer reviews underway. To submit feedback on the peer review plans or research posted, please send an email to the corresponding email addresses listed to the right in the yellow box and include the following in the subject line:

In the subject line list the Program & Project Number, Research Title, the words "peer review plan" or "research", and the words public comment (ex. TAP 728 Well Stimulation Effects on Annular Seal of Production Casing on OCS Oil and Gas Operations Peer Review Plan Public Comment)

List out any comments, questions, feedback by number (ex. 1, 2, 3, etc.)

If referencing any sources of published information, please list the complete source information in a recognized reference format (such as APA)

Include your name, contact (phone/email), and affiliation.

Please note this public commenting page also doubles as a peer review agenda record. "Days Remaining" will have a 30 day minimum provided.

For peer review plan feedback, send emails to:
