ALMA Proposal Review

Cycle 8 2021 Supplemental Call

Proposals in the Supplemental Call will be peer reviewed using a distributed system in which each proposal team selects a designated reviewer to participate in the review process. Additionally, as in the main call, proposals submitted to the Supplemental Call will follow a dual-anonymous procedure, in which the proposers do not know the identity of the reviewers and the reviewers do not know the identity of the proposers.
