Changes in the peer review process

From the release of WINDOW 5 we use an Access® database instead of the text files that were used by Window4. Starting April 1, 2003 we will cease to publish the text files database and will only support the Access database for Window5 and Optics5.

For the same reasons, the peer review group will no longer receive a set of text files to review, instead, it will receive an Access database that can be used with Optics5 to review the data. This database should not be opened directly. It should only be inspected by using Optics5. Please refer to  instructions to open the peer review database.

 Although some files in the peer review database may have the # sign (indicating that NFRC-acceptance has been requested for these products), the peer review database is not protected yet. This means that this data, when imported in Window5, will automatically lose the # sign and cannot be used to perform official simulations. Only when the data has passed peer review, it will be added to the IGDB and the # sign will be protected.


Instructions for viewing the data

These instructions require that you have the latest version of Optics5 installed on your computer. To download and install the latest versions of this software, please refer to:

http://windows.lbl.gov/materials/optics5/default.htm

 The steps that you should take are the following:

  • Save the zipped peer review file (peer review.zip) to a local folder on your computer.
  • Unzip the peer review file (peer review.mdb, graphs, and properties table) to the same folder or another folder of your choice. The graphs and properties table are for your quick review of the data.
  • Start Optics5.
  • In Optics5 select Tools|Options from the menu. This brings up a new window.
  • In the new window, under the tab ‘Database locations/Default folders’ double click on the name of the UserGlazing database (or click on the button next to it) to change the location of the User Database that Optics uses.
  • Select the peer review database to be your new user database. This is only temporary and your user database will not be changed or overwritten.
  • Click Ok (or Apply and Ok) to apply the changes
  • In the toolbar select the User Database. This will bring up all the files that are up for peer review.

 You are now able to view the spectral data in the peer review database. After you have finished reviewing the data, you should apply the same steps above in Optics5 to return the settings to using your normal User Database.
