What is the Distributed Peer Review (DPR)
From P110 (Oct 2022-Mar 2023) ESO has introduced the Distributed Peer Review (DPR) for the time allocation of submitted proposals requesting a telescope time shorter than 16 hours including overheads.
Exceptions to this general rule are:
- Proposals including at least one ToO run;
- Calibration proposals;
- Joint VLT-XMM proposals.
All other proposals submitted during a regular cycle will be reviewed in the classical way by the OPC and the panels
All PIs of proposals qualifying for DPR accept to review a number of proposals submitted by their peers during the same cycle. Similarly, they accept that their proposal/s is/are reviewed by an equal number of peers who submitted proposals in the same cycle.
