Anubis is a system to handle calls, proposal submission and reviews.

It is based on the following entities:


A call is a call for proposals. In the Anubis system, it is a container for proposals, reviews, decisions and grants.

The input fields of all other entities are created and defined within the call by the call owner.


A proposal can be created and written by anyone who has an account in the Anubis system. A proposal always belongs to one and only one specific call.

The proposal must be submitted by the user before the closes date of the call.

The input fields for proposals within a call should, of course, be defined before the call is opened. However, it is possible to modify an input field even when the call has been opened, but this feature should be used as little as possible.


The reviews of proposal within a call is set up by the administrator. This entails defining what information the reviewers must provide, including scores or rank. The administrator must then create the actual review forms for each reviewer and proposal.

The reviews are visible only the administrator, the owner of the call, and optionally by the other reviewers in the call.


The purpose of the decision entity is to document what the result of the review of a proposal is. Creating a decision does not send any email to the proposal author. This has to be done outside of the system.

Grant dossier

A grant dossier is a means for the researcher and staff to share information, such as documents, about a successful proposal.

Input field types

Most of the above entities are configured for each call to provide a set of input fields, to be filled in by the user, reviewer or staff. There are a number of input field types that may be used.


An account is the representation of a user in the Anubis system. A user must have an account to be able to write a proposal. An account may have different roles, which gives different sets of privileges.


Different user roles have different sets of privileges, which determine what they are allowed to do within the Anubis system.
