Review and Feedback Services

An editorial review can increase the chances of a successful Tri-Agency grant application. Our feedback focuses on the strength of the proposal in meeting the specific SSHRC program objectives and on overall rhetorical effectiveness including organizational structure, grammar, word choice and the use of non-specialist language. Recommendations are provided on how to present most effectively the research project in alignment with SSHRC standards for fundable proposals.

Editorial reviews of Tri-Agency grant applications are available from Suzanne Jaeger, PhD, Faculty of Arts & Science Funded Research Officer.

Researchers affiliated with the Department of Sociology can receive a similar service form from Sherri Klassen, PhD, Sociology Research Coordinator. The Research Coordinator provides coaching, critical feedback and editorial advice to help develop highly competitive funding applications, and assists in navigating any particular internal and program submission procedures and requirements. 

It is sometimes advisable to hire a freelance editor for a final copy-edit review.
