Over the years AMRC has worked with our members to develop principles of peer review which allow funders of all sizes to carry out high quality peer review of all their research funding. Membership of AMRC is recognised as a quality mark demonstrating that vigorous peer review processes are in place ensuring that only the highest quality of research is supported.
This document looks at how funders manage their grant management processes, and defines areas where AMRC's policies or the principles of peer review apply, or where there are examples of good practice or other case studies that charities might wish to consider.
Research funding mechanisms evolve, taking in new technology and ways of working. Research managers need to be kept aware of these changes, and we hope that this guide will be useful to those new to research management in charities and to those who are more experienced.
