Notes:
"First-Time Reviewers" are those reviewers whose first instance of review service occurred during the given time period. Service records go back ten years, so if an investigator served for NIH more than ten years ago, he would be counted as a First-Time Reviewer in this analysis.

"Mail" reviewers are those reviewers who served only as Mail reviewers during the given time period. Therefore, a reviewer who came to two different review meetings and participated in a third meeting as a Mail reviewer would be counted as a "Regular" reviewer. A reviewer who participated as a Mail reviewer for three different review meetings, but not as a Regular reviewer, would be listed as a Mail reviewer. [A Mail reviewer provides written critique(s), criterion scores, and an initial overall impact score(s) on a particular grant application(s), by some form of mail, electronic, or internet-assisted communication to the Designated Federal Official, but does not attend the meeting or participate in the discussion of the application(s) and does not provide a final overall impact score(s).]

The analysis does not include critiques for reviews of R&D contract proposals or Loan Repayment Program applications.
