Prevention Research Expertise Survey (PRES)

We developed the Prevention Research Expertise Survey (PRES) to build a directory of experts in research methods and study designs.

Why should you participate?

Sharing your specific methodological and content area expertise can help improve the quality of prevention research supported by the NIH. Your responses will be added to a directory of experts, which NIH staff can use to identify potential reviewers with the appropriate expertise for NIH study sections.

How long will it take to complete the survey?

Roughly 15–25 minutes.

What happens after you take the survey?

Based on your responses, skill set, and interest, you may be asked to serve as a peer reviewer for prevention-related research applications, or you may be asked to speak at an NIH seminar or workshop. Your participation is strictly voluntary. Completing the survey does not commit you to serving on an NIH study section.

How will your privacy be protected?

The information you enter in PRES will only be used to populate the electronic directory. Your responses and information will not be shared with anyone outside the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The ODP only grants access to the electronic directory to staff with verified HHS-issued credentials.
