The Internet Assisted Review (IAR) system is a web-based system to manage the process of electronic submission of critiques by reviewers. IAR expedites the scientific review of grant applications by standardizing the current process of critique and initial priority score submissions by reviewers via the Internet. IAR enables the reviewers to submit their critiques and view each other's reviews before the actual meeting. As a result, review meetings can contain more informed discussions because reviewers are able to read the evaluations entered by others prior to the review meeting (except where there is a conflict of interest).
IAR is accessed through the NIH eRA Commons, a web-based system that allows principal investigators (PIs) and central research administration offices to communicate and send information electronically. To be able to use the NIH eRA Commons you must be registered as a user. Contact your Office of Sponsored Programs or Office of Clinical Research representative for information about registering.
