Following recent feedback from the sector the ARC has made a change to RMS functionality which should provide greater flexibility for detailed assessments from peer reviewers. The assessment forms in RMS have now been updated to reduce the minimum character count per assessment criterion to a minimum of 500 characters (approx. 75 words) and a minimum of 3,500 characters (approx. 525 words) for the overall assessment.

Please refer to the Peer Review page on the ARC Website for information regarding the peer review process.
