Association for Heterodox Economics Submission to UK Science and Technology Parliamentary Select Committee on peer review
The Association for Heterodox Economics (AHE) prepared a submission on Peer Review to the UK Parliament's Select Committee on Science and Technology. The enquiry was announced on 27 January: Select Committee Announcement 32 (10-11) states that "The committee invites evidence on the operation and effectiveness of the peer review process used to examine and validate scientific results and papers prior to publication" The AHE was and remains concerned that the Peer Review process in Economics (which considers itself a Science) is not conducive to quality but to the contrary imposes conformity and monotheoreticism, in distinction to other sciences, leading to adverse selection. I am placing our submission to the Select Committee, which I prepared, for the public record since, although it is in principle available through the UK parliamentary archives, this is relatively inaccessible. The paper is a valid scholarly document which was reviewed by the AHE and is fully referenced.
