This article is a key aspect of the Open Methodology Framework and has therefore been protected. Propose changes to this article on its corresponding discussion page.

Peer Reviews are used to get feedback from fellow Contributors with the aim of improving your article. Ask your fellow Contributors for their opinions, list outstanding issues and areas to improve on Talk Pages and get other Contributors involved. Of course, it best to have a reasonably well-developed article so those giving comments have something substantial to offer feedback on.

After a thorough peer review, an article can improve to the point where it is recognised as part of the Core MIKE2.0 Methodology. Once its part of the core MIKE2.0, it is seen as a stable part of the overall approach.


Peer Review Process

Key aspects of the Peer Review process are as follows:

Initiating the Peer Review

After an article has gone through the process of being under construction and has reached a relatively mature state, its ready for a Peer Review. To identify an article as Ready for Peer Review, place the Peer Review Template in the Talk Pages of the article by adding the following text to the top of the page: {{Peer Review}}

Conduct a Discussion on the Article

Contributors should use Talk Pages to review the article and discuss proposed changes. Changes can also be made to the article in conjunction with the discussion. Discussion on Talk Pages should be focused on relevant topics around the article's improvement and how it may be incorporated into the overall MIKE2.0 Methodology.

Goals of a Peer Review

The primary goal of a Peer Review is to improve the proposed article. A Peer Review may also result in the following:

  • Recommendation that an article be included into the Core MIKE2.0 Methodology
  • Recommendation to merge the article with another article
  • Recommendation that the article be removed as it contains inappropriate content
  • Major changes to the proposed approach
  • Re-categorisation of the article


The conduct for the Peer Review process is particularly important as it will be common to have differing points of view on the direction of an article. The following should be kept in mind:

  • Discussion and language should be kept professional
  • It is not necessary to have a single solution to a proposed approach; it is valid to list multiple options to the same proposed solution
  • Contributors should encourage reviews and expect their content to be edited

For a far more detail approach on conducting Peer Reviews, refer to the Wikipedia section of Peer Reviews. MIKE2.0 follows the same standards of conduct regards Peer Reviews and use of Talk Pages.
