SSHRC Research Funding
A recent petition on peer review and the funding system operated by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), suggests researchers in Canada have serious concerns with our current system. Some have suggested similar concerns apply to the Social Science and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC). The CIHR petition reads in part:
[i] Jayasinghe, U.W., H.W.Marsh and N.Bond. J.R.Statist.Soc.A (2003)166 (3) 279-300.
It is our hope to better understand to what extent these views are more broadly held. We invite you and all others who have a stake in research and research funding to offer your comments and ideas on the funding system operated by SSHRC.
We will do our very best to report your views fairly, whether you agree there are serious concerns over SSHRC funding, or not. Please use this petition to contribute to this discussion and include an email address if you would like to receive a compendium/report of the provided comments. This is part of a larger effort that includes feedback on NSERC. For that petition click here. We look forward to hearing from you.
