Guidelines & Review Criteria

Important notes: Critique templates are no longer located on this website. The templates have been moved to the Critique Templates for ReviewLock Icon page on the NIH Extramural IntranetLock Icon, where they are accessible only by NIH staff.

The review criteria pages have also been removed from this site. We encourage those looking for review criteria to check the relevant FOA. This Review Criteria at a Glance document links to Section V of the parent FOAs that are currently available.

Note to Reviewers: These documents are provided as general reviewer orientation to NIH peer review. For meeting specific information, please rely on the documents and links provided by your SRO.
