Peer review

Peer review is a process used for checking the work performed by one's equals (peers) to ensure it meets specific criteria. Generally, the goal of all peer review processes is to verify whether the work satisfies the specifications for review, identify any deviations from the standards, and provide suggestions for improvements.[1] In the Berlin Communiqué (2003), the European Ministers called upon ↑ENQA through its members "to explore ways of ensuring an adequate peer review system for ↑quality assurance and/or accreditation agencies or bodies [↑accreditation body]".[2] In the Bergen Communiqué (2005), they accepted the proposed model for peer review of quality assurance on a national basis, while respecting the commonly accepted guidelines and criteria.[3]
