The surrogate indicator of radiological excellence that has become accepted is consistency of assessments between radiologists, and the technique that has become the standard for evaluating concordance is peer review. This study describes the results of a workstation-integrated peer review program in a busy outpatient radiology practice. Workstation-based peer review was performed using the software program Intelerad Peer Review. Cases for review were randomly chosen from those being actively reported. If an appropriate prior study was available, and if the reviewing radiologist and the original interpreting radiologist had not exceeded review targets, the case was scored using the modified RADPEER system. There were 2,241 cases randomly assigned for peer review. Of selected cases, 1,705 (76%) were interpreted. Reviewing radiologists agreed with prior reports in 99.1% of assessments. Positive feedback (score 0) was given in three cases (0.2%) and concordance (scores of 0 to 2) was assigned in 99.4%,
Additionally, we believe that one of the main objectives of peer review system is to improve the quality of a candidate manuscript. Normally we try to publish the average marks (out of 10) a manuscript received at initial peer review stage and at final publication stage to record its history of improvement during peer review. This process further increases the transparency. It is more important to record the strength and weakness of a manuscript honestly than claiming that our peer review system is perfect. Therefore, these transparent processes (i.e. publication of review history files and scores of a particular manuscript) additionally give a clear idea of the strength and weakness of a published paper to the readers. This process enhances the chances of proper use of the result of research (and or reduces the chances of misuse of the weakness of the findings of the paper). Thus this transparent process may prove to be highly beneficial for the society in the long run ...
Peer review is considered the gold standard of scientific publishing. Trust in the traditional system of editor - blind-reviewer - author is still high, but its authority is in decline and alternative methods are on the rise. The current study investigates opinions of alternative peer review methods, the arguments for and against, and the reasons why academics are searching for new approaches. The opinions were analysed by applying qualitative content analysis to online discussions. The findings were interpreted using two different sociological theories: the Mertonian sociology of science and social constructivism. The results of the study show that the most discussed method was also the most traditional one: closed pre-publication peer review comprised of single blind, double-blind and open peer review (non blinded). Discussions of open peer review (both open publishing of reports and open discussions) were also common. All other alternative methods were discussed much less. But the ...
The peer review process is a cornerstone of biomedical research publication.1 The editorial peer review process is described as journal editors relying on the views of independent experts in making decisions on, for example, the publication of submitted manuscripts or presentation of reports at meetings.2 The peer review system is considered the best method for helping scientific editors decide on the acceptability of a manuscript for publication.3 Nevertheless, the effectiveness of the system has been questioned. In 2010, a report commissioned by the UK House of Commons showed that the cost to the UK Higher Education Institutions in terms of staff time was £110 to £165 million per year for peer review and up to £30 million per year for the work done by editors and editorial boards.4 Worldwide, peer review is estimated to cost £1.9 billion annually and accounts for about one-quarter of the overall costs of scholarly publishing and distribution.5 The human resources were estimated to be about ...
Beginning with an historical reminiscence, this paper examines the peer review process as experienced by authors currently seeking publication of their research in a highly controversial area. A case study of research into the events of 9/11 (11 September 2001) illustrates some of the problems in peer review arising from undue influences based on financial and political considerations. The paper suggests that ethical failures, rather than flaws in the process itself, are mainly responsible for perceived problems. The way forward lies in improved ethics and a more open process. In addition, editorial review boards and peer review strategies would help to improve the ethics of peer review in general.
This page lists individual Peer Reviewers alphabetically by the Surnames and gives further details about them on clicking their names.. Members of the Editorial and Peer Review Board peer review submitted articles in their areas of expertise, suggest names of other reviewers, suggest topics to be covered and provide ongoing advice to the editors. Final decision about the acceptance and refusal of the article for the publication will be taken by editors.. The editorial and peer review board will be reviewed annually.. No person, including editors, will be involved in the peer review of an article in which they have a direct or indirect interest or involvement.. ...
Under the Office of Management and Budgets (OMB) Information Quality Bulletin for Peer Review, Federal Agencies must post an agenda describing their plans for external peer review of scientific information and assessments that the Agency intends to disseminate.

To obtain a copy of the OMB Bulletin, click here.. This peer review agenda will be updated periodically; announcements that the agenda has been updated will appear in the "OSHA News" section on OSHAs home page (http://www.osha.gov).. The public is invited to submit comments on this agenda. You may submit your comments via E-Mail to [email protected] Peer Review Agenda. ...
Update: Bill Hooker has pointed out that Im using a very strong sense of "reliable" in this section, holding peer review to the standard that it nearly always picks up errors, is a very accurate gauge of quality, and rarely suppresses innovation. If you adopt a more relaxed notion of reliability, as many but not all scientists and members of the general public do, then Id certainly back off describing this as a myth. As an approximate filter that eliminates or improves many papers, peer review may indeed function well. Every scientist has a story (or ten) about how they were poorly treated by peer review - the important paper that was unfairly rejected, or the silly editor who ignored their sage advice as a referee. Despite this, many strongly presume that the system works "pretty well", overall.. Theres not much systematic evidence for that presumption. In 2002 Jefferson et al (ref) surveyed published studies of biomedical peer review. After an extensive search, they found just 19 studies ...

The peer review process both in journals and funding agencies could use more transparency, reporting and accountability. The authors identify incentives that could encourage journals to make their peer review data available to evaluate effectiveness toward achieving concrete measures of quality. This is a collective action problem requiring leadership and investment by publishers. It is time to apply the "trust, but verify" model to journal peer review. The authors suggest revising the Transparency and Openness (TOP) Guidelines, a set of reporting standards ...
Despite this, peer review doesnt need to be hard or nerve-wracking - or leave you with the feeling youre doomed to fail. Its actually a very structured process; it can be learned and improved the more you do it, and youll become faster and more confident as time goes on. Soon enough, youll even start benefitting from the process yourself.. Peer review not only helps to maintain the quality and integrity of literature in your field, its key to your own development as a researcher. Its a great way to keep abreast of current research, impress editors at elite journals, and hone your critical analysis skills. It teaches you how to review a manuscript, spot common flaws in research papers, and improve your own chances of being a successful published author.. To get the most out of the peer review process, youll need some best practice tips and techniques to keep in mind from the start. Heres where we come in. We asked an expert panel of researchers what steps they take to ensure a thorough ...
It seems as thought the wrong lesson is being drawn here. As you quote Menger: ...the system ultimately worked. I think that we ought to be focusing on the word ultimately. Although I am a terrific fan of peer review, approximately as it is now practiced, and although I appear to be in the minority here, I doubt that anyone in any part of this spectrum would disagree that it should be made more efficient, specifically, faster. Its not clear how that could happen, as peer review systems have long been operated by email and other digital means, so its not that the magical web is going to improve that too much. Unfortunately, the supply of expert reviewer time is limited by the number of experts, and their time. (Here expert means anyone who could have a sufficient understanding of the topic at hand to say something useful about it). Perhaps were going about peer review the wrong way. Its too hard to read and write a review of a whole paper in detail -- therein which lies the time ...

Evaluation of manuscripts is carried out by the journals Editors and the invited external peer reviewers according to the following procedures.. The editorial process and peer-review workflow for each journal are taken care of by a team of Senior Editors, Editorial Board Members (EABMs) who have expertise in their specific fields and the publication managers. Bentham follows a single blind peer review process. The services of Senior Editors and Editorial Board Members are sought through invitations to organize and conduct the peer-review of a submitted manuscript, keeping in view the scope of the manuscript and the expertise of Editors. Manuscripts are forwarded for evaluation to Editors initially and then subsequently to independent external reviewers to check if the research work presented in the manuscript:. ...
The peer-review that the works were subject to was often weak or absent. The sort of review which books receive is quite different from the stringent peer review of journal articles. There are no formal review standards for trade and university presses, and often no standards at all for popular presses. Dembski has commented that he prefers writing books in part because he gets faster turnaround than by submitting to journals (McMurtrie 2001). Anthologies and conference proceedings do not have well-defined peer review standards, either. Here are some other examples of weak peer review ...
However, peer review is also something more, if not something even completely different in the first instance. Besides being a quality control device, peer review is a distributed effort for recognizing and increasing the value of manuscripts and so is inherently constructive. It is simultaneously a context in which experts develop, adapt and enforce standards of judgement, a form of (direct and indirect) connection and cooperation, a disciplined, mediated discourse between (often unrelated) experts in a "safe" (though often disorganised and ambiguous) environment. And so it is also inherently social. If this is true, peer review cannot be seen as a prediction game on the objective quality of manuscripts. Unlike an activity, such as people guessing the weight of an ox, which so fascinated the British scientist Francis Galton in the early 1900s, there is no pre-established, unambiguous weight or value that can be attributed to a research paper.. In a recent large-scale collaborative ...

In 1986, Congress, concerned about "[t]he increasing occurrence of medical malpractice and the need to improve the quality of medical care," sought to encourage good faith professional peer review activities and enacted the Health Care Quality Improvement Act ("HCQIA"), 42 U.S.C. 11101 et seq . Congress found, among other things, that "[t]here is an overriding national need to provide incentive and protection for physicians engaging in effective professional peer review" and granted limited immunity from suits for money damages to participants in professional peer review actions. Twenty years later, Poliner v. Texas Health Systems , 537 F.3d 368 (5th Cir. 2008), cert. denied , 129 S. Ct. 1002, rehg denied , 129 S. Ct. 1663 (2009), confirmed that immunity.

Peer review ensures that the scientists conducting the study apply methods that are appropriate to the problem being investigated, it promotes the free exchange and discussion of ideas, and often leads to improvements in both the analysis and the presentation of the study data. In addition, review of the study methods and results by knowledgeable, yet objective, experts can increase the credibility of the work within both the scientific and public communities. Usually, to ensure objectivity, the peer review process is confidential with unknown reviewers evaluating the work of unidentified investigators. However, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is committed to public involvement. This means that since its inception, the Hanford Thyroid Disease Study has been conducted with complete openness to public scrutiny. The CDC is dedicated to continuing this openness throughout the review process for the draft Hanford Thyroid Disease Study Report ...
The Peer Review panels primary objective was to review the model development program, validation tests and results, expert panel discussions, and overall model enhancement effort for validity with regard to state of the practice so that the model can be applied with sufficient reliability in the regional transportation planning process.

Peer review is carried out by a pool of independent external reviewers ​who are selected on the basis of their expertise to conduct the reviews. All proposals submitted to a call are treated equally. They are evaluated impartially on their merits, irrespective of their origin or identity of the applicants. All proposals and related documents communicated to the AO Foundation are treated in confidence. Based on the project abstract, each reviewer must confirm that he/she concurs with the AO Foundations Code of Ethics (PDF, 33 KB). After this confirmation, the reviewer will receive the full project proposal for review.. ...
The US Supreme Court has recently been wrestling with the issues of the acceptability and reliability of scientific evidence. In its judgement in the case of Daubert versus Merrell Dow, the Court attempted to set guidelines for US judges to follow when listening to scientific experts. Whether or not findings had been published in a peer-reviewed journal provided one important criterion. But in a key caveat, the Court emphasized that peer review might sometimes be flawed and therefore this criterion was not unequivocal evidence of validity or otherwise. A recent analysis of peer review adds to this controversy by identifying an alarming lack of correlation between reviewers recommendations ...
A scientific publication system needs to provide two basic services: access and evaluation. The traditional publication system restricts the access to papers by requiring payment, and it restricts the evaluation of papers by relying on just 2-4 pre-publication peer reviews and by keeping the reviews secret. As a result, the current system suffers from a lack of quality and transparency of the peer-review evaluation process, and the only immediately available indication of a new papers quality is the prestige of the journal it appeared in. Open access is now widely accepted as desirable and is slowly beginning to become a reality. However, the second essential element, evaluation, has received less attention. Open evaluation, an ongoing post-publication process of transparent peer review and rating of papers, promises to address the problems of the current system. However, it is unclear how exactly such a system should be designed. The
I was part of a great WA Communication Culture Media panel today on the theme of feedback and was specifically asked to comment on receiving and giving feedback on journal articles (mainly via peer review). It was a great and wide-ranging conversation, and clearly applicable well beyond the immediate audience, so I thought Id post my tips for journal feedback here.. Receiving Feedback via Peer Reviews. [1] Be Humble. Your peer reviewers are almost always providing free labour when undertaking peer reviews. Sometimes theyve been mentored and have a great and encouraging system for giving feedback that makes it easy to receive. Often, however, theyre replicating a model of peer review thats more combative. Either way, most peer reviews (even the dreaded Reviewer 2) have something useful in them. Be humble and try and find those useful points. That doesnt mean taking all criticism to heart. Nor does it mean your peer reviews are necessarily right. Be they do exist, and someone took the time ...

Over at Lucias blog on an essentially open thread, there was some back and forth on peer review, the merits and barriers to formal publication vs blogs, and so forth.

A couple of months ago, a Baltimore reporter called to get my take on a scandal at St. Josephs Hospital in Towson, an upscale suburb. A rainmaker cardiologist there, Dr. Mark Midei, had been accused of placing more than 500 stents in patients who didnt need them, justifying the procedures by purposely misreading cath films. In several of the cases, Midei allegedly read a 90 percent coronary stenosis when the actual blockage was trivial - more like 10 percent.. Disgusting, I thought… if the reports are true, they should lock this guy in jail and throw away the key. After all, the victims now have permanent foreign bodies in their vascular beds, and both the stent and the accompanying blood thinners confer a substantial lifetime risk of morbidity and mortality. As I felt my own blood beginning to boil, the reporter asked a question that threw me back on my heels.. "Why didnt peer review catch this?" he asked.. Hospital peer review is getting better, partly driven by more aggressive ...

Abstract: Peer review is pivotal to science and academia, as it represents a widely accepted strategy for ensuring quality control in scientific research. Yet, the peer-review system is poorly adapted to recent changes in the discipline and current societal needs. We provide historical context for the cultural lag that governs peer review that has eventually led to the systems current structural weaknesses (voluntary review, unstandardized review criteria, decentralized process). We argue that some current attempts to upgrade or otherwise modify the peer-review system are merely sticking-plaster solutions to these fundamental flaws, and therefore are unlikely to resolve them in the long term. We claim that for peer review to be relevant, effective, and contemporary with todays publishing demands across scientific disciplines, its main components need to be redesigned. We propose directional changes that are likely to improve the quality, rigour, and timeliness of peer review, and thereby ...
Under Action 14, countries have committed to implement a minimum standard to strengthen the effectiveness and efficiency of the mutual agreement procedure (MAP). The MAP is included in Article 25 of the OECD Model Tax Convention and commits countries to endeavour to resolve disputes related to the interpretation and application of tax treaties. The Action 14 Minimum Standard has been translated into specific terms of reference and a methodology for the peer review and monitoring process. The minimum standard is complemented by a set of best practices.. The peer review process is conducted in two stages. Stage 1 assesses countries against the terms of reference of the minimum standard according to an agreed schedule of review. Stage 2 focuses on monitoring the follow-up of any recommendations resulting from jurisdictions stage 1 peer review report. This report reflects the outcome of the stage 1 peer review of the implementation of the Action 14 Minimum Standard by the United States, which is ...

Peer-review is the system used to assess the quality of a manuscript before it is published. Reviewers in the relevant research area assess submitted manuscripts for originality, validity, and significance to help editors to determine whether the manuscript should be published in the journal.. Initial manuscript evaluation. The Editor first evaluates all manuscripts. It is rare, but it is possible for an exceptional manuscript to be accepted at this stage. Manuscripts rejected at this stage are insufficiently original, have serious scientific flaws, have poor grammar or English language, or are outside the aims and scope of the journal. Those that meet the editorial policies and a minimum quality level are normally passed on to at least 2 experts for review.. Type of Peer Review The journal employs the double-blind peer review process, where both reviewers and authors remain anonymous throughout the review process.. How the Reviewers is selected.

Severe dopaminergic neurotoxicity in primates after a common recreational dose regimen of MDMA ("ecstasy")", was a paper by Dr. George Ricaurte which was published in the leading journal Science, and later retracted. The reason was that instead of using MDMA, methamphetamine had been used in the test. The retraction of the paper led to questions over its publication. It has also been asserted that this questions the peer review process. Many have also argued that the failings in the paper (use of materials other than those specified) could not have been caught by peer review; and that the scientific process did work successfully in the end, in that the article was ultimately retracted. The paper was published in the 27 September 2002 issue of Science (volume 297, pages 2260-3). The article had been submitted to Science on 29 May 2002 and was accepted for publication on 14 August 2002. Neither the time required for peer review nor the time between acceptance for publication and actual date of ...

Im not known for my strong endorsement of the fetishism of peer review, but even so I think Dobbs is being somewhat unfair. My reading of history is that scientists have been plugging the peer-review mantra because theyre tired of having to respond to ignorant assholes who appear on Oprah spouting nonsense. I mean, yes, you can address wacko claims about vaccines causing autism or the lack of global warming on their merits (they have none), but it gets tiresome to repeat. In any case, relatively few members of the public can follow the actual arguments, so it becomes an issue of who you believe. And thats a hard game to win, since saying "so-and-so doesnt know what theyre talking about" sounds elitist even when its true, and "elitism" (read: "meritocracy") is for some reason unpopular ...
Rediscovery of a snail thought to be extinct has raised questions about the peer-review process that approved the publication of the extinction report.
Research is not complete until it has been reported. Research is no contribution to the scientific community until it is reported, whether through publication or some other means. Reports are a necessary first step in the dialog with other scientists about the approach and significance of the work. Unless research is reported, it is impossible for others to build on what has been learned.. Most organizations reviewing research have specific guidelines regarding confidentiality and conflicts of interest. In addition, many organizations and institutions have guidelines dealing explicitly with the responsibilities of peer reviewers, such as those of the American Chemical Society (1996), the Society for Neuroscience (1999), and the Council of Biology Editors (CBE Peer Review Retreat Consensus Group, 1995).. Publication is not merely a matter of credit. One may wish to publish so as not to perish, but this alone is not enough to justify a reports being published. Publications should present some ...

Open access is not fully realized without open peer review, which would provide opportunities for scholarly dialogue and critique throughout the writing process and beyond, argues Alex Mueller.
by Michael Mann and Gavin Schmidt. In a previous post, we discussed a number of examples where the "Peer Review" process has failed, and poor papers have been published in the ostensibly peer-reviewed literature. In this context, we revisit our previous discussions of the flawed work of McIntyre and McKitrick (henceforth "MM"). MM published a paper, in the controversial journal Energy and Environment, claiming to "correct" the proxy-based reconstruction of Northern Hemisphere temperatures published by Mann et al (1998-henceforth "MBH98"). Following the all-too-familiar pattern, this deeply flawed paper was heavily promoted by special interests as somehow challenging the scientific consensus that humans are altering the climate (an excellent account is provided by science journalist Dan Vergano of USA Today here). As detailed already on the pages of RealClimate, this so-called correction was nothing more than a botched application of the MBH98 procedure, where the authors (MM) removed 80% of ...
The African Peer Review Mechanism is a self-monitoring mechanism aimed at fostering the adoption of policies, standards and practices that lead to political stability, high economic growth, sustainable development and accelerated regional economic integration through the exchange of experiences and reinforcement of best practices.
