ACS PRF expects reviewers to provide objective and unbiased reviews of the research proposal, based on the scientific merit, originality, potential impact, and feasibility of the proposed research. In addition, ACS PRF expects reviewers to receive proposals in confidence and protect the confidentiality of its content. Reviewers must also reveal any personal or potentially personal Conflicts of Interests (COIs) that could arise from the review of any submitted research proposals.
By checking this box, I declare that I receive the proposal in confidence and protect the confidentially of its content.
By checking this box, I declare that I do not have a Conflict of Interest with the proposal.
Examples of personal COIs or potential personal COIs include:
1. You and the PI have had mentor-mentee relationships.
2. You and the PI have directly collaborated on a research program and have joint publication(s) during the last four years.
3. You and the PI have been colleagues at your current or former institutions.
Please note, professional relationships and collaborations such as organizing conferences, workshops etc. or interactions in scientific events do not constitute a COI. Consult with the PRF Program Manager, if you are not certain if you have a COI with a proposal.
