EGI-InSPIRE:Roles in the review process
Reviewer: Responsible for providing a review of the document on the EGI review form so that responses from the document authors to the reviewer can be tracked. A change tracked version of the document can be provided with corrections for spelling, formatting and other minor issues. The reviewer is generally from the activity and organisation that is not responsible for producing the document.
Moderator: Responsible for providing a review and deciding in cases of conflicting reviews, which elements of a review must be implemented by the author. The decision to follow or reject a reviewer’s comment must be tracked in the review document. The moderator is normally an EGI-InSPIRE taskleader not from the activity producing the document.
Editor: The person from the activity and the partner who is responsible for the document. They may rely on others within the activity to provide the information. The editor cannot be a moderator or reviewer.
Project Office (PO): The project office provides administrative support for the process.
Shepherd: The shepherd is a member of the AMB who is responsible for overseeing the production of the document. They will work with the Editor to ensure that the work is done in a timely manner, and report to the AMB on its progress. Normally the activity manager or their deputy.
AMB Chair: This is the project director, or their deputy.
[NOTE: an individual could hold one or more of these roles if they are not in conflict with each other.]
