Evaluated the peer review process used to fund Australian university research across all disciplines, relating peer reviews of 2,989 research proposals (6,233 external reviewers) to characteristics of the researchers and of reviewers. Findings lead to suggestions for improvement, especially that researcher-nominated reviewers should not be used and that there should be more reviews per proposal, performed by a smaller number of highly selected reviewers.
