In the original version of the article, it was incorrectly stated that natural language processing was used to pick out key terms from proposals and match them to referees’ self-reported areas of expertise. Rather, an algorithm was used to find expert referees based on their publication record. The algorithm results matched self-reported expertise well, with an 80% success rate of removing researchers with no expertise. This has been corrected in the HTML and PDF versions of the manuscript.
