Reviews performed for funders

You cannot currently add grant reviews for funders to your Web of Science researcher profile. You can however let us know that you have reviewed for those funders and that you would like to receive recognition for that work on the Web of Science. Depending on the user engagement, we can convey that information to funders to encourage them to submit your review information to the platform. 

You can use the ‘Request Recognition from a Funder’ button on your Grant Reviews page or from the Sidebar Navigation by clicking Grant Reviews +Add.  


Please then enter the funder’s name and the year you performed the grant review. Next please select which type of grant review you performed for the funder and then please click on the “Request recognition” button. We will then contact funders to request that they add these reviews to your profile if an integration becomes available. 

What is the difference between a panel grant review and an individual review? 

Grant panel review (i.e. the reviewing of multiple grant applications) 

 A funder brings together a range of experts across a discipline to review multiple grant applications. These experts will evaluate each grant application in turn and decide on funding across multiple applications. These experts may be appointed to a specific funding round or for a period.  

 In addition to reviewing multiple proposals, a grant panel review involves discussion between other panel members to leverage the expertise of the whole panel. These discussions can take place in person, or via teleconference. 


Individual grant review (i.e. the review of a specific grant application)  

A funder commissions experts (usually 2 to 3) in the relevant field to provide a detailed review for a specific grant application or proposal.
