Proposals are the mechanism by which scientists articulate their research area and the resources needed to accelerate their research.
We recommend all researchers who do not currently have an ORCID record sign-up for one today.
ORCID, which stands for Open Researcher and Contributor ID, is a free, unique, persistent identifier for individuals to use as they engage in research, scholarship, and innovation activities. ORCID is the fastest way to log in to the ISR’s submission platform. In an active crisis, every second counts, and we recommend this critical time-saving preparatory step.
Types of Proposals
Proposals are the mechanism by which scientists articulate their research area, the specific ways in which they will address a crisis, and the resources needed to accelerate their research. The ISR accepts proposals for crises in the declared state and preparatory state.
- Preparatory Crisis State: we accept short concept proposals (500-1,500 words) as part of our readiness exercises. These exercises are simulations of what members of the ISR science community would do in a real crisis. They help scientists prepare in advance of an actual crisis.
- Declared Crisis State: we accept proposals that address an active crisis. A review and assessment process determines how resources are allocated to address the declared crisis.
