Comparative Assessment of Peer Review (CAPR): EU/US workshop on peer review: Assessing "broader impact" in research grant applications
This is the report of a workshop focusing on the use of broader societal impacts criteria as part of the review process at the European Commission. There is both a historical account and some thinking about how 'impact' ought to be incorporated into Horizon 2020 (the funding scheme formerly known as FP8). Since the US NSF is also currently rethinking the details of its merit review process, and since there is an interesting comparison between NSF's and the EC's approaches to impact, the authors have also included a focus on NSF's Broader Impacts Criterion. The workshop was both a research opportunity (under SciSIP grant #0830387) and an effort to use that research to help inform policy for science (in terms of informing peer review models). digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc86179/

DART's Sales Tax Revenues: A Review and Outlook
This report discusses the DART systems' sales tax revenues. In addition to the fare box, DART's operations are funded through a one percent sales tax levied by member cities on all retail transactions as permitted by state law. During the 1990s, DART's sales tax receipts grew at a healthy clip. But between 2001 and 2003, taxable sales in the DART service area declined. By contrast, for many non-DART suburban cities, taxable sales continued to expand during the 2001-2003 period. This report, by the University of North Texas Center for Economic Development and Research, looks at three possible explanations for these trends. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc30390/
