Really? Is this how the grant proposals are evaluated at the American National Institutes of Health? Indeed. --Дядько Ігор (talk) 11:13, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

The "Article" says; "peer review is common in decisions related to faculty advancement and tenure.[citation needed]". Here is the fatal flaw in Peer Review, which will be its downfall. Pieraccini wrote to get past peer review, not to communicate science. The founder of Wikipedia said he wanted "peer reviewed" literature. This ignored the Wikipedia entry on T S Kuhn, who discusses "The Structure of Scientific Revolutions". Obviously, Peer Review will block even the suggestion of paradigm change. - Ivor Catt 28 July 2016 http://www.ivorcatt.co.uk/x59b1.htm http://www.ivorcatt.co.uk/x66k.htm — Preceding unsigned comment added by 109.151.32.208 (talk) 10:37, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

Bible is first and most peer-reviewed journal of documents[edit]

The process used by the early Christian church leaders in the life of the new church established the concept of peer review, later adopted by early church-related academic institutions. This well-documented effort is likely the basis of all peer review. Peer review of the Bible continues through commentators and skeptics. This is the essential process of peer review.

That sounds like an odd thing to say. But if it is well documented, please link to some of the documentation William M. Connolley (talk) 15:44, 24 January 2016 (UTC)
Bible criticism is definitely very important to the development of literary criticism, but it has no clear connection to peer review. The Bible is not a "journal," and the texts of the Bible -- today, at least -- are not viewed as potential journal articles to be reviewed by "peers." A peer reviewer's job is to recommend whether or not a publishing body should accept a particular submission for publication and, when possible, to suggest revisions that would strengthen the argument of the submission. "Canon formation" works well as a term for talking about what the early church did, but "peer review" doesn't work as well. Jk180 (talk) 15:26, 10 March 2016 (UTC)
