Peer review process

The foundation is committed to publishing high-quality research and peer reviews are an essential part of achieving this goal.

Research reports are subject to a rigorous process of review, involving the following stages:

  • Independent peer review by a minimum of two researchers with content and/or methodological expertise. Peer reviewers provide feedback on the quality, structure, style and content of the report, highlight strengths and weaknesses and provide their recommendation about publishing the report.
  • Reviews returned to authors for response where appropriate
  • Final internal review for overall report quality

Where research reports have been through a process of independent peer review, this is stated in the covering pages of the report.
