    Default Latest news from the Twilight Zone

    Rep. Smith (R, Texas) - has a brilliant idea for scientific advancement in the United States... let's get rid of peer review!

    1) "… in the interests of the United States to advance the national health, prosperity, or welfare, and to secure the national defense by promoting the progress of science;

    2) "… the finest quality, is groundbreaking, and answers questions or solves problems that are of utmost importance to society at large; and

    3) "… not duplicative of other research projects being funded by the Foundation or other Federal science agencies."

    NSF's current guidelines ask reviewers to consider the "intellectual merit" of a proposed research project as well as its "broader impacts" on the scientific community and society.
