JWST Peer Review Information

The Science Policies Group (SPG) is home to the scientific and technical staff that manages the allocation of observing time on the Huble Space Telescope (HST) and the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). The SPG is responsible for maintaining the process of selecting the science program for General Observers (GOs) and Archival Researchers (ARs), and establishes science metrics to evaluate success. The SPG is the point-of-contact between the James Webb Space Telescope Users Committee (JSTUC) and the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI).

The SPG's key objective is to optimize and maximize the scientific productivity of JWST. The SPG fosters the submission of the highest quality scientific programs, including working with the community to identify key scientific areas for the investment of JWST observing time, and encouraging  broad multidisciplinary and multi-observatory collaborations.
