Town Hall for Planetary Science Research Programs May 21 




On May 21, 2024, at 1 PM Eastern, NASA’s Planetary Science Division (PSD) will host a webinar to discuss the Planetary Research Program, including upcoming changes, some data on programs to date, and plans to reduce the barrier to proposing for the planetary research community. 


A large focus of this Town Hall will be to discuss requirements for proposals submitted under the Dual Anonymous Peer Review (DAPR) process, which will be the default for all proposals submitted to the Science Mission Directorate (SMD) under ROSES-2025 (with rare exceptions). In DAPR, not only are proposers unaware of the identity of reviewers, but the reviewers do not have explicit knowledge of the proposing teams and institutions during the scientific evaluation of the proposal. This portion of the Town Hall will discuss the motivation for DAPR and how SMD has used it to date, the process of DAPR reviews, and tips on how to be compliant with DAPR submissions.   


Additionally, we will discuss some analytics for our Planetary Research programs and potential future ways of soliciting proposals for Planetary Research, with the goal of increasing accessibility and decreasing unnecessary barriers for proposing to Planetary Research programs.  


In advance of the webinar, questions may be submitted and upvoted on at:!/dashboard
