Alternatives to peer review in research project funding

Source: RAND

From the website:

This report highlights a set of established approaches that offer unique alternatives to traditional peer review — alternatives that address many of the shortcomings in peer review effectiveness and efficiency. The appropriateness of these different approaches will depend on the funder's organisational structure and mission, as well as short- and long-term financial realities. We hope that the information presented in this folio of cards will inspire thinking amongst research funders by showing how the research funding process can be changed, and give funders the confidence to try novel methods by explaining where and how similar approaches have been used previously.
