This chapter presents a 1996 commentary on peer review of medical research. In the past quarter century, prospective peer review of research proposals involving human beings has been required in most developed countries. Review boards, usually individual institutions, must make independent determinations of the rights and welfare of research subjects; of the appropriateness of the methods used to obtain informed consent; and of the risks and potential benefits of the investigation. However, since the beginning of mandatory peer review, the credibility of review boards has been questioned.
