Hubble Space Telescope Call for Proposals for Cycle 22 > Chapter 6: Proposal Selection Procedures > 6.2 Selection Criteria

6.2 Selection Criteria
Evaluations of HST proposals are based on the following criteria.
Criteria for all Proposals
Additional Criteria for all GO and SNAP Proposals
What is the rationale for selecting the type and number of targets? Reviewers will be instructed to recommend or reject proposals as they are and to refrain from orbit- or object trimming. Therefore, it is very important to justify strongly both the selection and the number of targets in your proposal, as well as the number of orbits requested.
Why are the unique capabilities of HST required to achieve the science goals of the program? Evidence should be provided that the project cannot be accomplished with a reasonable use of ground-based telescopes (irrespective of their accessibility to the proposer).
Additional Criteria for Large GO, Treasury GO, and Legacy AR Proposals
Additional Criterion for SNAP Proposals
Additional Criterion for Calibration Proposals
Additional Criteria for all Archival Research Proposals
Additional Criteria for Treasury GO and Legacy AR Proposals
