Call for Nominations: New SPC Subcommittee on Research Enterprise Evaluation

To: FASEB Board and SPC Members

CC: Society Executive Officers and Public Affairs Staff

In January, the SPC voted to establish a new ad hoc subcommittee that will focus on topics related to the evaluation of research and the research enterprise. The Research Enterprise Evaluation Subcommittee will incorporate some of the activities previously covered by the Peer Review Subcommittee, but will also explore topics related to measuring the outcomes from U.S. federal investment in biological and biomedical research and the emerging topic of reproducibility of research results. The subcommittee charge is attached to this email.

We are currently recruiting representatives to serve on this new subcommittee. If you are interested in serving or would like to nominate a colleague, please email me at yseger@faseb.org by April 15. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions.
