UMass ADVANCE provides resources for faculty to engage in more equitable collaboration. One kind of collaboration that we engage in as faculty is shared decision-making during peer review panels. A helpful guide to effective and equitable peer review practices does not have to be long. Here we provide a template for one-page framing statements that peer review committees can easily use and adopt. The first link is to a framing statement developed by UMass ADVANCE for the most prestigious internal research fellowship on our campus (the Conti fellowship). The second link is a generic version of a one-page framing statement template that any committee can download and use for their award selection process.
