Information on our reviewer scoring scales and Je-S expertise.

Reviewer scoring scales

Classification of your expertise on Je-S

The harmonised cross-council research classification structure operates within a series of levels. For disciplinary and subject expertise this works as follows:

  • Level 1 - Research Discipline (Research Area), eg Law and Legal Studies
  • Level 2 – Sub-discipline (Research Topic), eg Socio-legal Studies
  • Level 3 – Keywords (Keys), terms which define more precisely the subject area of the research proposal or expertise of a peer reviewer, eg Human Rights.

Reviewers are encouraged to update their Je-S records, classifying their areas of expertise and stating specific methodologies utilised to aid selection of peer reviewers.
