This news article introduces a new COST Action entitled PEERE (TD1306), which stands for New Frontiers of Peer Review (PEERE). PEERE is a trans-domain proposal which brings together research- ers from various different disciplines and science stake- holders for the purpose of reviewing the process of peer review. PEERE ocially began in May 2014 and will end in May 2018. Thirty-one countries, including Malta, are currently participating in the Action. In order to set the context in which this COST Action was initiated, we rst look very brie y at the history of the process of peer review and various models of peer review currently in use. We then share what this COST Action hopes to achieve.
