Die Regierung der Wissenschaft im Peer Review

Abstract : This article deals with the comparative analysis of peer review as a complex evaluation phenomenon. Starting from the variety of peer review as an object for the sociology of evaluation, we develop a research perspective that makes peer review in its procedural form and control function accessible to an empirical comparative procedural analysis comprehending it as a decision-making mechanism for scarce resources. Our research approach combines the praxeological (Stefan Hirschauer) and functionalist analyses of processes (Niklas Luhmann) with the conceptual approaches from the sociology of evaluation and enables to determine relevant parameters for differentiating and typologising peer review in science. This allows the identification of specific activities that can be identified as elementary components of peer review procedures. Differing peer review processes can thus be determined according to their degree of complexity and positioned as evaluation policy between internal and external forms of control.
