Report Development Process
Contributing Authors included scientists with relevant subject matter expertise nominated by Lead Authors, CCIWG or other interagency members, and the general public (through the February 12, 2016, public FRN calling for Contributing Author nominations). Where needed to fill gaps in expertise, additional subject matter experts were later invited by individual chapter teams to be Contributing Authors, based on their expertise as shown in peer-reviewed publications and other pertinent criteria.
In some instances, author teams invited special ad hoc reviews from peers (referred to as Expert Reviewers in SOCCR2) who were not authors on their chapter. Such reviews of draft chapters helped to improve the report prior to formal reviews by SGCR, the public, and the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM). Additionally, Review Editors were involved in the process following the NASEM and public review phases, as described in Section A.9.4.
