In my perspective, Peer review, while vital, has limitations. Here's how to strengthen it:

  • Reviewer Training: Equip reviewers with skills to give constructive feedback and identify bias.
  • Transparency: Consider double-blind or open review to reduce bias while protecting confidentiality.
  • Reviewer Recognition: Give credit for quality reviews to incentivize active participation.
  • Feedback Mechanisms: Provide reviewers feedback on their performance to improve their skills.

These steps can improve the quality of reviews and the research they assess.
