Blogger DrdrA at Blue Lab Coats writes about being on the "other side of the grant," as a reviewer, and drafts a list of "Reviewer Blues." On the list? Eleven-point Arial font, 25 sub-aims listed beneath three overall aims ("sometimes less is more," she writes), and pages packed with text and no breathing room. The reviewer does, however, appreciate applications complete with flow charts outlining the experimental design and those that provide only one figure per page. "An organized SRO is a god-send," DrdrA adds.
