The Rise and Fall of Peer Review

A good project team always has one person on the team that must try to do anything within a certain set of rules to find reasons why the project or a specific part of the project should not go ahead, should be done differently or an alternative that should be considered. Some sort of devil’s advocate. That should not be the least competent person on the team and this person does not do that at all times. This is precisely to avoid this back-slapping deal that is peer review today. A review that does not throw lots of fire and brimstone on something to see if it stands up to it is worthless. Peer review cannot be fixed and should be replaced.
