Peer review system must be improved29th July 2011
A report from the Parliamentary Science and Technology Committee has said the peer review system used by many medical journals before they publish new research is in need of a radical overhaul.
The report from the committee of MPs says more checks, transparency, regulation, and sharing of best practice is needed and that prepublication peer review has evolved in a "piecemeal and haphazard". The committee concluded that to allow clinicians and scientists to follow and build on research findings, they should aim for a gold standard of making their data fully disclosed and publically available.
