A Community Review Board is a structured forum for researchers and community organizations that are interested in feedback from community members. It is composed of community members who serve as expert reviewers and provide feedback on various aspects of a proposed or ongoing research projects. Community members review sections of the project such as the design, implementation and recruitment strategies. 

Community reviewers are key to Community Review Board success. The experience, knowledge and passion that community reviewers bring to the research process are tremendous assets.

Basic criteria to be a community reviewer include:

  • Member or knowledge of the population or community of interest
  • Desire to learn about research
  • Good listening skills
  • Good verbal communication skills
