Enhancing the Quality and Objectivity of Scientific Information
To improve the quality and objectivity of the scientific information we use to make decisions, the Fish and Wildlife Service will implement a more structured “peer review” process for influential scientific information and highly influential scientific assessments, per OMB Bulletin on Peer Review, “Final Information Quality Bulletin for Peer Review,” (PDF, 263 KB) released December 16, 2004.
Part of the peer review process is to provide information on the Web about how each peer review is to be conducted, as described in this checklist.
