Preparation of research portion of file
- Before sending the whole T&P package to a referee, it has been our practice to send an email message asking whether the potential referee is willing to act in that capacity.
- If someone accepts to act as a referee they are sent a formal letter together with the following.
- the candidate's CV,
- their research statement,
- copies of papers (typically 4) to be considered,
- excerpt of general university expectations for promotion and tenure,
- excerpt from departmental expectations including material specific to section and rank
- I suggest that everything should be sent by email as quickly as possible and by paper mail soon thereafter.
- Co-authors (I suggest only the 'senior=most' author relative to the candidate of each paper reviewed) should be asked to supply a statement on the role of the candidate in the preparation of the paper.
