Peer review in scientific publications

Source: UK House of Commons (Science and Technology Committee)

From the website:

The Science and Technology Committee today concludes that in order to allow others to repeat and build on experiments, researchers should aim for the gold standard of making their data fully disclosed and made publicly available.

In the report examining the current peer-review system as used in scientific publications and the related issues of research impact, data management, publication ethics and research integrity, the MPs say that it should be a fundamental aim of the peer-review process that all publications are scientifically sound.
