Editorial Support for Royal Society of Canada Nominations

The Office of the Vice Dean, Research and Health Science Education (RHSE) is pleased to announce that we will be providing editorial support for the Detailed Appraisal section of Royal Society of Canada (RSC) nominations for the 2023 nomination cycle. This includes nomination packages for induction to the RSC College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists and for RSC Fellow membership.

The nomination deadline for both programs is December 15, 2023. Editorial review will be first come, first served and we will accept the Detailed Appraisal for editorial review up until Thursday, December 7, 2023.

We recommend that both candidates and nominators thoroughly read the nomination guidelines prior to preparing nomination materials (RSC College Nomination Guidelines; RSC Fellow Nomination Guidelines). After reviewing relevant materials, please reach out to Alex De Serrano (a.deserrano@utoronto.ca) if you have any questions about the RSC programs or if you would like to request editorial review.
