  • Equip individual reviewers and committees to focus on the substance of reviews with easy tools for collecting, viewing, annotating, labeling, and routing candidate materials.
  • Pick and choose from features tailored for higher education—including not just forms and documents, but also recusal, rebuttal, standing and ad hoc committees, multimedia, and external evaluations—to mirror your exact process.

Give Academics Under Review A Positive Experience

  • Make your professional academic reviews into a clear, familiar, affirmative routine.
  • Leverage Interfolio’s widely used Dossier service to provide every academic with a familiar, private space to curate materials and accomplishments.
  • Optionally, draw upon data from Interfolio Faculty Activity Reporting (Faculty180) and candidates’ past reviews to make packet assembly easy.

Create Consistency and Establish Standard Workflows

  • Build workflow templates to govern every type of academic review case that takes place at your institution—not just tenure and promotion, but annual review, appointment, reappointment, sabbatical, merit pay increase, and all others.
  • Automatically document that the mandated process was followed in all cases.
  • Facilitate consistency across all reviews while preserving appropriate differences between disciplines, ranks, and employment models.
