SSB Award Reviewing
Become a Reviewer!
Are you interested in supporting students and other systematics researchers by reviewing proposals sent to the Society of Systematic Biologists? Each year, the SSB Awards Committee handles ~200 award applications. We rely on our expert colleagues to evaluate proposals and abstracts. As the volume of proposals grows each year, we understand that it is critical to have a diverse and active reviewer pool. If you would like to be added to our reviewer database, please click the button below to submit your contact information.
Below we have provided information about the review process for our three main awards. This information is intended to prepare reviewers for the task of evaluating award submissions. Moreover, we hope that by providing the reviewer guidelines online, applicants will be able to better understand how to their submissions are judged by our review panels. This transparency can help students (in particular) improve their applications and consider the challenges of the review process.
The links below will take you to pages providing reviewer guidelines for each of our major awards.
