Specialist Review Panels
The Specialist Review Panels provide HMinfo with the expertise for a comprehensive review process for their published documents. The review aims to fulfil the function of a traditional academic peer review of HMinfo documents by researchers in the same field. However, the review also contributes the valuable knowledge of experts in other fields, including design, building and healthcare, as well as the experiences of people with a wide range of disabilities.
The Specialist Review Panels are comprised of three regular panels of four to seven members: the Consumer Panel, Industry Panel, and Research Panel. These panels provide specialist advice and represent the viewpoint of a wide range of stakeholders. Accordingly, panel membership aims to include members with various backgrounds and experiences. At times, publications may require the co-opting of people with a specific specialty or expertise, as guest expert reviewers.
The process for Specialist Review is outlined in the HMinfo Specialist Review Panel: Terms of Reference. Specialist Review Panel members complete their review with submission of the Feedback Form: Specialist Review.
Members of our Review Panels as at June 2015 include:
