The best thing I have ever seen concerning peer review

. . . was recently published by the British Academy. This report is entitled Peer Review: the challenges for the humanities and social sciences. The working group that produced this report was chaired by Albert Weale. A copy can be found online here. It is absolutely fantastic.

I am just digesting the report now, but will update shortly with further comments. Meanwhile, I most strongly recommend that readers take a close look at this report. It is invaluable.
