  FAQ - Peer Review
Peer review is the evaluation of nursing services, the qualifications of a nurse, the quality of patient care rendered by nurses, the merits of a complaint concerning a nurse or nursing care, and a determination or recommendation regarding a complaint including:
Review of NPR Chapter 303 in its entirety is recommended, as compliance with various sections of this chapter is necessary to assure compliance with “due process” and “good faith” peer review requirements.
If the peer review committee believes external factors were involved in the incident (whether or not the nurse is being reported to the BON) the committee is now required to also report the issue to the entity’s patient safety committee, or to the CNO/nurse administrator if there is no patient safety committee.

  Peer review - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Peer review (known as refereeing in some academic fields) is a scholarly process used in the publication of manuscripts and in the awarding of funding for research.
Peer review subjects an author's work or ideas to the scrutiny of one or more others who are experts in the field.
Peer review of scholars' work has existed at least since it was known as "The Inquisition of the Holy Roman and Catholic Church"; a principal task of which was to investigate "suspected novelties".

 Peer review
Peer review can never be perfect, and surely only the most blinkered idealist would hold that it is not, from time to time, corrupted in just these very ways.
And as for explaining peer review to the public, well – the notion that people at large will wish to engage with peer review sufficiently to form any strong opinion of it – even assuming they do not lose the will to live half way through the explanation – is utterly unrealistic and completely fantastic.
It is time for scientists and their reviewers to call for an end to what remains of the peer show’s futile and odious secrecy, grow up, be mature, and most of all, be prepared to defend what they write to an author’s face with humour, humility and humanity.

 Peer review at opensource encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Peer review subjects an author's work or ideas to the scrutiny of one or more others who are experts in the field of the subject at hand.
A chief rationale for peer review is that rarely is just one person, or one closely working group, able to spot every mistake or weakness in a complicated piece of work.
In some cases, reviewing is blinded: the authors are required to remove any reference that may point to them as the authors of the paper (bibliography etc...) and the referees are not informed of the names of the authors.

 Peer Review: Crude and Understudied, but Indispensable... [Peer review, July 13 JAMA. 1994;272:96-97] (c) AMA 1996
In a review of biases, dozens have been identified at various stages of a study[10] --in specifying and selecting the study sample, executing the experimental maneuver, measuring outcomes, analyzing the data, and interpreting the data.
[11] [12] For example,disagreement among reviewers is common[3][13] and is probably primarily a reflection of the complexity of the process of manuscript assessment rather than being evidence that the peer review process is arbitrary or capricious.
Reviewers with different experiences, different areas of expertise, and different views of the body of knowledge may produce quite different assessments that are valuable to author and editor even though their recommendations are divergent.

 Peer Review Process
The peer review meeting is a committee process and the summary statement reflects the individual comments of the assigned reviewers and the collective input of the committee.
The initial scientific peer review of most research applications also will include a process in which only those applications deemed by the reviewers to have the highest scientific merit, generally the top half of the applications under review, will be discussed at the SRG meeting, assigned a priority score, and receive a second level review.
Revised applications are reviewed in the same manner as new applications, although reviewers are instructed to evaluate the appropriateness of the responses to the previous review.

 The case against peer review. By Daniel Engber
Scientists give peer review so much authority because they view it as a part of the grand tradition of scientific inquiry—an extension, even, of the formal experimental method.
Peer evaluation is the endpoint of a cautious progression from theories and predictions to experiments and results.
One set of studies shows that revealing the identities of reviewers has no effect on the quality of their efforts, contradicting the standard argument that anonymity fosters rigorous criticism and high standards.

 Tree of Life Peer Review
Reviewers are chosen by the editor-in-chief (David Maddison) in consultation with the associate editors (i.e., coordinators) of a given group.
The reviews are administered under the system of one-sided anonymity, i.e., reviewers are provided with the names of the authors, but authors are not told the identities of the reviewers; reviewers do, however, have the option of revealing their identity to the authors, if they wish to do so.
Reviewers are expected to base their recommendation as to a page's acceptance or rejection on a thorough examination of the submitted material.

 Peer Review Glossary
The Center Peer Review Program is designed to review and evaluate those portions of a firm's accounting and auditing practice that are not inspected by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) (i.e., the non-SEC issuer practice) so firms can meet their state licensing, federal regulatory and/or AICPA membership requirements.
Peer review control risk is the risk that a firm’s system of quality control will not prevent the performance of an engagement that does not conform with professional standards.
After reviewing the firm's response, the reviewer considers whether the firm's response is appropriate, prepares additional team captain comments, if necessary, and evaluates whether to incorporate the matter into a letter of comments finding.

 naturalSCIENCE, Volume 1, Article 2, 1997
Summary: A brief historical overview of the origins of peer review reveals that it is neither the best means of evaluating contributions to science nor the one most commonly used during the period in which the modern scientific method developed.
It is argued here that peer review as now undertaken by most scientific journals stifles scientific communication, slows the advancement of knowledge and encourages dishonest behavior among referees.
In general, peer review stifles scientific enquiry both by subjecting authors to anonymous critics whose comments cannot be directly challenged, and by self-censorship by authors who hesitate to state the exact rationale or goals of their proposed research for fear that it would not pass the scrutiny of their colleagues.

 Peer Review - P2P Foundation
Peer review is part of an elaborate process of institutional and prior validation of what constitutes valid knowledge; peer production vetting is a posteriory vetting by the community of participants.
This gives the practice of peer review an inherently conservative tendency, particularly when access to the peer group is strictly policed, as it is the case in academia, where diplomas and appointments are necessary to enter the elite circle.
I should also qualify my comments by saying that while peer review seems to work reasonably well in journal article review, it is undeniably broke in conference article and grant proposal review, two fairly large and important parts of the practice of science today.

 Exploit Interactive Issue 5: The Invisible Hand of Peer Review
The residual cost of online-only peer review is low enough to be recovered from author-institution-end page charges, covered from institutional subscription savings, thereby vouchsafing a toll-free literature for everyone, everywhere, forever.
Both journals are rigorously refereed; only those papers that have successfully passed through the peer review filter go on to run the gauntlet of open peer commentary, an extremely powerful and important supplement to peer review, but certainly no substitute for it.
Hardly, for the "Invisible Hand" of peer review is still there, exerting its civilising influence: Just about every paper deposited in Los Alamos is also destined for a peer reviewed journal; the author knows it will be answerable to the editors and referees.
