Peer Review is one of the quality standards that CRE intends to propose for adoption and use as international data quality standards. Elsevier publishes technical articles in various peer-reviewed journals. Elsevier has published a position statement on the importance and use of peer review. It reads in part as follows:

“What is peer review?
