ALPSP argues case for peer review

Share this on social media:

'Peer review is an important process in the dissemination of scientific information, and is highly valued by the scientific community,' Audrey McCulloch, executive director, UK of ALPSP, told a UK government inquiry.

'It has naturally evolved to suit the individual requirements of different communities and is firmly established. Various attempts have been made to reinvent it, but ALPSP believes that it would be more appropriate to continue to support and enhance the existing process, making use of established and developing tools and technologies,' McCulloch continued.

The UK Government's House of Commons Science and Technology Select Committe Inquiry into the operation and effectiveness of the peer review process closed on 10 March 2011.
