## What are Reviewer Rewards?

Reviewer Rewards give proposal reviewers (and project contributors) a financial incentive for providing high quality constructive feedback. Funds may be posted by sponsoring organizations who have posted Thinklab funding opportunities, or by the researchers themselves.

#### Participation Score

An algorithmically determined value from 0.5 to 1.5 that measures participation in the community. (See below.)

## How are payment eligible points earned?

If Reviewer Rewards have been posted, users can earn payment eligible points in two ways:

1. Proposal review — When a user reviews a Thinklab idea or proposal, their review, consisting of their annotations and (inline) comments, is peer assessed.
2. Thinklab discussions — When a user posts a comment in a Thinklab discussion that comment is peer assessed individually.

## How is the Participation Score calculated?

Your participation in the following activities affects your earnings. Here's our recommendation for maintaining a good participation score:

Thinklab earnings are entirely merit based. Proposal review is a significant time investment and we expect people to earn between $100 to$400 for completing a full review. Comments posted on discussion pages are individually rated and they can earn from $0 to$100 depending on peer assessment as shown.
