Procedures for Peer Review of Reports
US Department of Education
Under the Education Sciences Reform Act, all research, statistics, and evaluation reports conducted by, or supported through, the Institute shall be subject to rigorous peer review before being published or otherwise made available to the public. Prior to review and approval by the NCEE Commissioner, NCEE reports are reviewed internally by the project officer and selected NCEE evaluation staff. In addition, members of the technical working group who served as advisors to the research team conducting the project typically review reports. After the NCEE Commissioner has approved the final draft report, the NCEE project officer submits the final draft report to the Standards and Review Office for external peer review. This document provides details on the various stages of this process. Legislation Relevant to Scientific Peer Review is appended. [This report was adopted by the National Board for Education Sciences (NBES) on January 24, 2006. For "Procedures for Peer Review of Grant Applications," see ED492103.]
