There are two working parties on peer review: one set up by Sense about Science, and another by the Royal Society. Patrick Bateson, Vice President of the Royal Society, liaises between the two groups.

It has been suggested that "part of its agenda [is] the "tightening up" of peer review procedures, to ensure that inconvenient research results simply never see the light of day." [1]
